Private dining room at THERE for up to 14 | Half Day Morning

If “industrial cathedral” was a design term, then Sam and Celeste Gant have nailed it. In a cavernous space originally built as a wool factory, and that once housed the Lonely Planet offices, There channels all sorts of warehouse chic. There are two walls of almost floor-to-high-ceiling steel-framed windows, and a stripped-back fit-out giving the space a friendly, spacious feel, welcoming customers to come in and work.

The furniture and fixtures are a mixture of locally sourced – such as the brass signage by Studio Tops, hand-carved stone sculptures by denHolm, and planters and timber tables dotted around the room – and finds from overseas trips. Huge vintage black factory lights from Amsterdam hang from the ceiling, and staff wears earthy green aprons that Celeste found in a hotel shop in in Japan.

The menu is concise, and has a particular flair for vegetables. Every day the cabinet gets loaded up with five big seasonal salads inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi’s cooking. Choose up to three, and add meat if you like – maybe slow-roasted lamb seasoned with Middle Eastern spices.
