Corner Room: Bethnal Green’s bright & beautiful brunch spot

It seems ridiculous to me that Corner Room has only just started serving brunch. The upstairs dining room within Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel is interior perfection, best enjoyed during daylight – high ceilings, huge warehouse windows, lots of wood, and those Insta-famous reclaimed pendant lamps.
I’ve always believed Corner Room to be one of the very few restaurants to nail “affordable luxury” – the concept seems to be somewhat of a holy grail in London, but here, the reasonable prices printed in the menu don’t quite prepare you for the treat that’s in store. With dishes like Crab Benedict, or peaches & ricotta on sourdough (dreamt up by chef Craig Johnson, formerly of Elliots, Pavillion and Newington Table) priced around the £8 mark, you can totally justify doing a brunch tapas kinda thing, and ordering a number of plates to share – plus brunch cocktails, of course.
Oh and did I mention that the Corner Room coffee is fantastic too?
