The Factory House is a subterranean restaurant and cocktail bar, which opened in London’s Leadenhall Market in September 2012, and is a destination for all-day dining, late-night drinking, business lunching and sophisticated imbibing.

The menu has been devised by Executive Chef Sean Davies, previously from the Tate restaurants, who is committed to showcasing British food at its best each season, including regional and foraged ingredients. Innovative and gourmet bar snacks such as Bacon & Thyme Popcorn, Lancashire Rarebits and Gordal Olives with Orange Sea Salt & Wild Oregano complement the thoughtful wine list and cocktail menu designed by the award-winning Fluid Movement collective.

The Factory House design alludes to the great Victorian age of innovation and industry, with a contemporary and sometimes humorous nod to reference its modern-day City location.

Key features in the discreet basement setting include carefully sourced machines and inventions from archives to echo the factory feel. Antique train station clocks have been reclaimed as wall sculptures; decorative gauges, pipe work and valves adorn the walls, and a Victorian coffee roaster has been renovated as a functioning waiter station.
