Review on Arthur Hooper's
Taking its name from a Victorian fruit trader that once occupied the premises, Arthur Hooper's is located on Stoney Street overlooking the hustle and bustle of Borough Market. Inside it has a stylish décor created by London design studio Massimo Minale in an elegant palette of dove grey and black. Reflecting its historic setting it has a Victorian ethos with artwork created by acclaimed artists Matt Small and Dan Hillier, marble tables are set against black banquette seating and furniture from Stellar Works Utility collection by Neri & Hu.
Serving a creative selection of European small plates, former Zucca chef Lale Oztec, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in London makes excellent use of local suppliers, such as Neal's Yard, Cannon & Cannon and Bread Ahead. The menu changes with the seasons but some of the ideas that are on offer include beef carpaccio, salsa verde and Capezzana olive oil or pure pork sausages, sweetcorn polenta, rocket and pickled red onions. For fish fans there's smoked mackerel pate served with homemade pickles and soughdough bread or roasted cod, lentils, Swiss chard and English mustard velouté. There's also lots of very tasty vegetarian options available like burrata, samphire and almond salad. If you wish to finish on a sweet note you have a choice of two desserts, mix berries semifreddo, bread and white chocolate crumble of maybe an Earl Grey panna cotta paired with lingue di gatto.
The first-class wine list is displayed within a wall of frosted cabinets on one side of the restaurant, and there's also Camden Hells Unlfitered Lager on tap and cocktails like Death In Venice, Campari, Grapefruit bitters and Prosecco.
