What they say:
After a year-long renovation, the fancy Liberty department store is debuting its brand new restaurant, Arthur’s. Named after the man who founded the store, the interior takes inspiration from it with an art deco aesthetic, with striped wallpaper and semi-circular booths made from upholstered velvet in shades of blue, green and pink. The kitchen caters for breakfast through till dinner, but the bar – sitting in the middle of the venue – serves up cocktails all day, which is the perfect place to park up if all the shopping is getting a bit much.
What we say:
Open until early evening, Arthur’s will make a prime brunch destination for hungry shoppers. Their dishes are created using artisanal produce found in Liberty’s own Mini British Food Hall. For brunch, expect dishes like smoked bean, baby spinach and a free range egg with sourdough soldiers, or fresh waffles topped with syrup, fruit, bacon or tomato chutney. They also serve Afternoon Tea, as well as larger plates for lunch and dinner, such as salmon poke, created from soy & sesame cured salmon, seaweed noodles, avocado, fava beans and raddish. Or if you want a lighter bite, try out their sandwiches served on rye or sourdough bread.
