The independent pub group behind the Lighterman will open a contemporary four-story concept on October 14, 2021.
Set in a magnificent glass and steel fronted building with multiple terraces, The Broadcaster will be Open House London’s next venue. It will build on the ambition to celebrate the British pub through great food and drink, contemporary design and a warm welcome, which can also be found in their successful King’s Cross pub, The Lighterman.
Created to be a new local for residents, a destination for weekend visitors, and a favorite spot for surrounding offices when they return to work, The Broadcaster will open on October 14, 2021.
Contemporary design, welcoming bar
Located at the entrance to the Television Center, the exterior of the building is anything but a traditional pub. The diffuser uses this to its advantage through huge windows which provide a portal to the building from the outside and allow the interior to be flooded with natural light.
Unlike outside, upon entering the 70-seat dining bar on the ground floor, guests will be greeted by softwood arches and a large pewter bar with green raven tiles, designed to evoke the feeling of a welcoming traditional pub, while maintaining the contemporary style of Open House.
The 60-seat first-floor dining room will continue the themes of green and pewter, to create a relaxed but elevated atmosphere in which to dine and socialize, and an intimate private dining room will seat up to 20 people for parties. private events. A second floor and an expansive roof terrace with retractable awnings and a garden oasis will open in early 2022.
By upholding the seasonality in each dish, only the best UK ingredients from quality suppliers will be used. With an expert culinary team, led by Chef Luke Rayment-Blakey, traditional cooking methods will be combined with modern techniques to deliver dishes that aim to impress.
Food will range from high riffs on British pub classics to vibrant herbal creations. Introductory dishes will include roast sea bass with wild stone served with mashed herbs; Dry aged rare breed sirloin served with turnip and horseradish terrine; and a wild mushroom and vegan feta pie served with rutabaga and green sauce.
Small plates and bar snacks will include homemade pork pies, celeriac baked in salt, and salted Scottish salmon tartare.
The main menu will be complemented by a pizza kitchen in the downstairs bar which will provide the perfect snack for those hungry, made with the same high quality British ingredients.
Independent brewers, craft cocktails
The seasonality will extend to the bar’s cocktail offerings that exploit mixology techniques developed through Open House and its cousin Pantechnicon, the Nordic and Japanese village from London to Belgravia.
For a taste of fall, guests will sip the “Pumpkin Fashioned” made from Buffalo Trace bourbon, spicy pumpkin and orange, or the “Autumn Cup” from Sipsmith London Cup gin with blackberry, cucumber, plum, mint and lemonade.
The bar will also feature classic lagers and stouts as well as craft beers from independent brewers, a rotating range of gin and tonic mixers and an extensive wine list from organic and biodynamic British and European winemakers.
After a difficult time for the hospitality industry, all of this will combine to provide a welcoming and positive space that hopes to bring renewed enthusiasm and excitement to White City.
