Such a shame that the Typing Room is closing. Lee Westcott and his team produce absolutely fabulous food - definitely worthy of a Michelin star - cannot fathom why Lee and his team have been overlooked. Every course (we had the 5 course tasting menu) was executed to an excellent standard, absolutely delicious. Service also excellent as was the Somelier. Relaxed and not stuffy. Highly recommended but get there before the end of June!

Worth travelling away from the West End and City for this gem of a restaurant. We had the five course set menu - some amazing flavour combinations, fun and attentive service that was both personable and knowledgeable, and a sommelier who knew his wines.

Why should you go?
- value for money: under priced relative to similar options in traditional areas
- a really interesting building if you are in to restaurant environments that are a little bit different
- Bethnal Green isn't that scary: be cool

Lee Westcott is great!!!! Ever since I learned about this chef and this restaurant, I have visited the Typing Room a few times and every occasion has been wonderfully enjoyable. Lovely friendly staff, amazing quality of service, of everything...and yet so down to earth at the same time. I love this place and what is and has been created here.

The food here-we had the tasting menu-is fantastic! Would highly recommend it. The only thing I would say that I’ve been there twice only-both times were fantastic-but....the menu was exactly the same. So before I would go again I would check that’s its changed.

Our experience at the Typing Room for a special occasion was memorable for all the right reasons. Exquisite food (marmite butter, scallops and duck were our favourites) and faultless service meant it was one the best meals we have ever had. I can’t wait to return.

Lee Westcott's Typing Room is a high end dining experience aimed at the adventuresome foodie who is willing to try something new. The ingredients and dishes are very fresh and often very unique and imaginative. No burgers here! They offer a 3 and 5 course tasting menu which rotates every week or so. The service is top notch.

I had a 3 course dinner with an assortment of snacks intermingled between the 3 courses. The first snack was a crispy fried cod skin with oyster and paprika. the second was pig's cheek served with a smoked apple puree. The first course starter was raw scallops served with Jerusalem artichoke , apple and monk's beard. This dish was very tasty but the apple flav
or was just a bit overpowering. The Aylesbury duck was served with rhubarb, beet root and juniper and was fantastic. The final course, blood orange , pumpkin brulee and ginger cake was delicious, especially the ginger cake.

I really enjoyed the R&B music from the 60's that was played tastefully and unobtrusively on the sound system. The service by Alex and Florent was superb. Both were well informed and very attentive without being interruptive.

In short, this was an excellent dining experience. I recommend it if you want to try something different!

I have been fortunate enough to eat some very nice meals in my life, but Typing Room has immediately vaulted into the top 3 of all time. All the staff showed great care and attention while superb, quality ingredients were combined in dishes bursting with flavour and incredible balance - from the melt-in-your-mouth pigs head amuse bouche; to the bold and tangy pumpkin and mandarin creme brulee, we were very, very impressed.

We had the lunch menus, which was really delicious. We asked for a pairing of wines, but we thought the pairing was a little over priced for amount per dish.

Overall a wonderful dinner and would love to return.

My 3rd visit to a place that is one of my favourites. The food was amazing as always, the paired wines worked perfectly with the food. The only thing that let it down on this occasion was that the food was coming too quickly, the course we were on wasn’t always finished when the next arrived and I had to ask twice to slow down. In fairness, from the second ask there was much more space between courses and the service levels improved to the high levels I’m used to from the Typing Room, particularly due to Fred the fabulous sommelier. Still one of my faves and I’ll definitely be back.

The Town Hall building complements the whole food experience. I was sat at the pass and can see the care and attention put into the elegant plates of food produced by Chef Lee Westcott. The Typing Room offers a tasting menu bringing together seasonal food which taste as good as they look. The service was spot on and the wine recommendation was also great. The whole ambiance of the Typing Room is fantastic. Well worth a visit. I'll certainly be returning!

Having written reviews for this restaurant before, I can only repeat myself - an amazing, thoughtful, original, beautiful menu, in a wonderful and historic environment. The tasting menu is truly a treat worth experiencing, and frequently. A great experience, and easily the best food in the neighbourhood, even amongst the best in London.
