As a sister restaurant of the no. 59 San Pellegrino World’s best restaurant, Viajante you know the design of the dishes is in very good hands. Couple that with the beautiful surroundings of the Town Hall hotel, it makes for one of the best valued dining experiences on offer in London. There are many Michelin star restaurants that don’t even match the cookery skills and ingredients on offer at the Corner Room. For those who want to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine before or after their lunch / dinner the lounge area adjacent to the dining area offers a very good proposition.

The cooking at the Corner Room is stunning and with Upstairs at the Ten Bells we would consider it the best Michelin star-worthy restaurant that doesn’t have a Michelin star. And when you take the price into account, quite frankly, a visit to the Corner Room is a no-brainer.
