the buxton opens on brick lane

The team behind The Culpeper has opened another pub and hotel inside an old Victorian building just down the street at the bottom of Brick Lane. The Buxton, named after local social reformer Sir Thomas Foxwell Buxton, features a ground floor pub, with a standalone open kitchen and bar with counter seating and a European food menu (expect dishes like asparagus with polenta chips and stracciatella, Dexter beef with celeriac remoulade, and treacle tart with clotted cream), and a seven-storey hotel with 15 bedrooms.

The rooms themselves sound fairly simple in decor, with multifunctional furniture and handwoven textiles, in contrast to the rather loud sounding hot pink walls and 1950s patterned carpets in the corridors. And just like at The Culpeper, there’s be a rooftop space with a small kitchen garden and space for hotel guests to come and relax.
