The Laughing Heart


Sample modern British cuisine that draws on inspiration from across the globe at this atmospheric east London restaurant.

Using only the finest seasonal ingredients, chef Tom Anglesea lets the produce stand out, pairing the main elements with subtle accompaniments in contemporary takes on classic combinations.

Tuck into the likes of middlewhite pork chop with fennel dumplings, Dorset crab with English peas and avocado, and datterini tomatoes with goat’s curd and sea lettuce.

Select lesser-known bottles from the wine list, which supports artisan and small-scale producers from across Europe.
