Alternatively, the Food Store concept is a contemporary restaurant, bar and grocer where guests and locals can relax, dine and stock up on provisions. Finally, Jack Speak is an exciting destination cocktail bar and terrace where guests can choose from an extensive rum and gin selection in a setting that is a playful twist on a 19th century British Navy Officers’ Wardroom. The outdoor terrace will be open all year round with external heating and umbrellas so that guests can enjoy food and drinks outdoors with a stellar view of London.
