Dishes will include the ‘City Boys’ all-day breakfast, ‘Notting Hill’ jerk chicken, and ‘the best of Brick Lane’ chicken tikka masala. Some of the city’s most outstanding beers, spirits and wines will also be available.

A hybrid of city pub dining and the modern London brasserie, Hithes is designed to reflect London’s fusion of lively city bustle and understated elegance.

Appealing at every day-part, a Juniper & Co will offer guests an ‘accessibly exclusive’ F&B experience, with a menu of classically British and specialty food items, with a focus on local provenance throughout.
