Thu, 1 Mar 2012 12:49:05 EST Spam fritters, chicken kiev and Angel Delight have become the order of the day at London's Bermondsey Square Hotel, following the launch of a new culinary venture by MasterChef co-presenter Gregg Wallace.
Gregg's Table, which opened at the boutique hotel on Monday, has a menu made up of 1970s favourites from Wallace's childhood and, according to the TV host and former greengrocer, offers "good fun and good value" with "good honest food". Diners can choose from a range of starters which include avocado prawn and mulligatawny soup, and a list of mains such as lobster thermidor and citrus-cured fish fingers with crushed marrowfat peas.
Wallace said he wants the restaurant to attract local residents as well as hotel guests, and be seen as a venue where people can come to enjoy a meal once or twice a week.
Speaking to The Wharf, he said: "I don't want it to be fashionable because fashions change. These are the dishes you would have found on working class tables when I was growing up - just with a little more finesse."
The restaurant is a joint venture between Wallace and Robin Sheppard, chairman of Bespoke Hotels, which manages the boutique hotel in London. Greggs Table can manage 90 covers indoors, while there is room for a further 100 diners outside.
Situated close to major landmarks including the Tate Modern, Borough Market and Shakespeare's Globe theatre, the Bermondsey Square Hotel has 80 designer bedrooms, including five loft suites which come with extra special features including a spacious terrace, a hammock and an eight-person hot tub.
