The art on the walls of the all-day restaurant and café (a converted Victorian pub) is painstakingly chosen by owners and interior-design power duo Charlotte and Justin, and the menu includes a bottomless brunch that is available every day. Downstairs boasts a cocktail bar turned temporary exhibition space, which exhibits new works by contemporary artists represented by Soho mainstay, Lawrence Alkin Gallery. The concoctions are named after classic films: it's probably best to order some nibbles, such as the squid or pigs in blankets, while you sip the Kill Bill – it can be lethal.
While the original Artist Residence in Brighton is quite the bohemian hang-out, the London branch is a little more sophisticated, attracting those across the city with an eye for aesthetically inspiring interiors and an appetite for good grub. If you're in the market for a weekend away outside of London, it's worth checking out their recently opened Oxfordshire hotel, too.
