If you are as much a fan of Hackney gastropub The Richmond as we are, this news will cheer you: Margaret Crow and Brett Redman are opening up their second restaurant in the Principal Hotel in Bloomsbury in early 2018. Aiming for a ‘fun and accessible approach to British cuisine’, Neptune will continue the work The Richmond began, with more oysters: this time a shellfish bar will dominate the centre of the room (a nod to its namesake), with a cocktail bar for simple, seasonal drinks. And as with The Richmond, British produce will rule the Neptune waves, but three-time Bib Gourmand winner Brett will also be looking to Australian and Californian influences to fill the menu.
