We seem to be seeing a small (and welcome) trend of chefs taking over and overhauling pubs at the moment, from The Culpeper through to just-opened The Richmond. Now another is on the way to Hackney - this time from two St John veterans, Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram.

Harris is best known for his recent run at One Leicester Street, while Jon Rotheram was seen at Jamie Oliver's revamp of Fifteen. They…

Japanese restaurant Flat Three to open in Holland Park

News reaches us of a new restaurant coming to Holland Park in April. Flat Three will apparently have "a new approach to Japanese-inspired food" but will also be influenced by Korean and Scandinavian cuisine.
