“Arthur Hooper’s is a stylish restaurant in a vibrant London Bridge neighbourhood, overlooking Borough Market. We infused the spirit of the area’s tradition that allows visitors to easily sample fresh food from local suppliers and wine from all over the world.”
Last month I attended the launch day for Arthur Hooper’s Restaurant to try out some of their dishes. The restaurant offers a selection of seasonally inspired small plates, meats and cheeses, perfectly paired with a diverse wine list. Arthur Hooper was an enigmatic fruit and vegetable salesman who once occupied the building. The recently derelict building’s historical ties to the local community and food have now been restored. Food is sourced from local suppliers such as Neal’s Yard and Cannon & Cannon.

The rough jewel box interior and Victorian structures has been exclusively handcrafted and designed by Buster + Punch and some of the lighting is from Delta Light. Designed as a contemporary homage to Victorian steel structures and cobbled pavements. The interior has been crafted with steel caged light fittings, hexagonal concrete flooring and tailored rare-wood cabinetry.
I went for the Rioja Rosado Rose wine which was fruity and sweet and went well with the savoury food. Sam had the house red wine which was strong and rich.
I went for the Lamb and Bulgur Meatballs with Tomato Sauce and Yogurt. The tomato sauce was rich which complimented the creamy yogurt. The sauce went well with the focaccia bread.
Sam ordered the Red Wine and Porcini Braised Sausages with Sage Breadcrumbs. This dish was very tasty but not as good as the meatballs.
Arthur Hoopers overlooks London Borough market and is a 2 minute walk from London Bridge tube station.
