This autumn, Dorothy & Marshall will open in the long-awaited redevelopment of Bromley Old Town Hall.
The all-day dining restaurant and bar will celebrate classic British dishes, serve hand-crafted cocktails and champion locally sourced seasonal ingredients such as London honey, artisan cheeses and fresh produce grown in the fields of Kent. Leading the kitchen is local chef Ralph Jones.
Jones has worked with some of the world’s most renowned chefs, including Chris Galvin, Marco Pierre White, Garry Hollihead and Eric Chavot. His commitment to quality along with his innovative twists on the classics make him the perfect fit for Dorothy & Marshall’s kitchen. The menu will feature dishes like Braised beef short rib with Guinness and black treacle, bone marrow mash, red cabbage as well as Baby artichoke, heritage tomatoes with Ragstone goat’s cheese, puff pastry tart. Dessert lovers will delight in the Golden Tate & Lyle treacle tart with raspberries topped with whipped almond clotted cream or the flamed baked Alaska with Sloe Gin blackberry sauce.
Located in the heart of Bromley, the restaurant will be housed in the courthouse of the former Town Hall of Bromley. This stunning Grade II listed building, originally built in 1906, has been respectfully restored and repurposed to include Brama, a boutique hotel and Clockwise co-working space.
The dining room pays homage to the building’s history with awe-inspiring, soaring ceilings and expansive radius windows along one side that bathe the room in natural light, perfect for breakfast and weekend brunch diners.
The wood-panelled room gives the space an intimate feel that is matched by cosy tones of burnt-orange and green, creating a perfect ambiance for evening dinner service and cocktails. Touches of bronze in the lighting fixtures and wooden flooring also add to the charm, while the back wall will be adorned with pictures and paintings portraying community life over the years.
Whether it’s a business breakfast, lazy lunch or dinner and a nightcap, Dorothy & Marshall aims to offer memorable experiences from the heart of the community. More details to be announced soon.
