Market Hall Fulham | West London Food Court
The first wave of traders has just been announced for the first in a set of three upcoming food hall openings from Andy Lewis-Pratt and Pitt Cue Co co-founder, Simon Anderson.
“I think Fulham’s going to be one of the most exciting ones that we do”, Simon says. And now, according to the rules of the game, it has to be just that.
And it’s shaping up pretty well. Housed inside the Edwardian ticket hall of Fulham Broadway (then Walham Green) station, it’ll see 9 kitchens, a deli, a coffee shop, a bar, and communal seating for around 180 people spring up inside the vast, Grade II listed atrium this May.
So here are the ones we know about so far…
The headliner of the announcement, Thima’s a new venture from wunderchef Seb Holmes, who earned his Thai stripes at the original Smoking Goat and The Begging Bowl before going on to open the insanely successful Farang in Highbury last year. He’ll be saving West Londoners the commute by bringing his most popular dishes down to the kitchens in Market Hall Fulham, alongside a couple of new exclusive numbers like curried hand-dived grilled scallop with basil and green peppercorns; and Massaman curry of whole confit duck leg.
A sibling for locals Claude’s Kitchen, Claude’s Deli will be an eat-in or takeaway outfit serving up classic café grub with an artisanal twist, specialising in soups, salads and sandwiches as well as breakfast bowls and freshly baked odds and ends.
Opening down here is a bit of a long shot for Yard Sale. In a literal sense, that is, seeing as they’ve been tucked away in North East London. Their perfectly topped stonebaked pizzas have won a heft of awards, for reasons that will become very immediately apparent on paying them a visit.
Taking the role of the Hall’s coffee pitstop is Press Coffee, an importing, roasting and brewing outfit that’s been going for five years. They’ll also be serving up loose leaf teas and fancy smoothies, juices and presses.
Just to really impress you.
NOTE: Market Hall Fulham opens in May, and will be open daily for breakfast through to dinner. We’ll be back with the full scoop as and when more traders are announced, and you can also keep an eye on their website right HERE.
