Review on The Buxton

Architect Gareth Roberts and business partner Nico Treguer have added a second venue to their portfolio, The Buxton at the end of Brick Lane, having already established The Culpeper a short walk away. Occupying a corner site, it is named after the 19th-century MP Sir Thomas Foxwell Buxton, a social reformer who previously owned the nearby Truman Brewery, and was chairman of the RSPCA.

The old boozer has undergone a serious revamp with the addition of two extra floors and a rooftop terrace. The ground floor features painted white brickwork and Victorian fireplaces and a 1950's terrazzo-patterned floor. There's a lovely Rosso Levanto marble bar with brass beer towers purpose built in Chicago and a open kitchen. Bathed in lots of natural light from the surrounding windows, polished wood tables are set with tall bar stalls. Upstairs The Buxton has 15 bedrooms and guests can take advantage of the rooftop terrace edged with vegetable and herb boxes to take in the stunning views of the city.

Ex-Culpeper sous chef Jamie Evans leads the kitchen, sending out an array of modern British and European dishes reflecting the very best of seasonal produce from carefully sourced suppliers. Kick start proceedings with gin and orange cured trout, dill yogurt and pickled fennel before a main course of Dexter beef, Jersey Royals and broccoli. To finish why not treat yourself to their stuffed doughnuts or maybe custard and rhubarb tart paired with clotted cream.

The Buxton has a selection of local beers and and non-intervention wines, alongside cocktails like the Buxton Cobbler, Madeira, Amontillado, Crème de Peche, Chai Tea Syrup, Lemon and Soda.
