Neptune Brett Redman and Margaret Crow, the duo behind The Richmond in Hackney, have moved in with the Principal London to give us this seafood focused restaurant and oyster bar. In a contemporary space within the historic Grade II* listed hotel in Bloomsbury, Neptune is a 102-cover restaurant with a 30-seater bar. Based on an informal approach to the classic oyster bar, the display of oysters and shellfish selected from independent growers around the UK is at the centre of Neptune's dining room. Order towering seafood platters or choose from Brett's signature wood-fired cooking from the a la carte menu. Steamed-to-order whole Cornish crab with spaghetti, caviar, cucumber and absinthe daquiri cocktails as well as natural and low-intervention wines are served against a modern dining room with a graphic wooden floor, peach ceiling and artworks curated as a rolling exhibition.
