Arthur Hooper’s has a strong sense of culture, Mediterranean culture. Many of our family of staff are from Mediterranean countries and they bring reality to our commitment to the life affirming eating and drinking traditions of those countries.
We wholeheartedly believe in supporting our local economy. Head chef Federico Tosi has finessed a blended menu by sourcing premium ingredients from artisan local suppliers such as family butcher William Warman & Guttridge, cured meats from La Credenza, fresh fruit and veg from Hardel's, fish from Southbank Fresh Fish, cheese from the legendary Paxton & Whitfield and dairy produce from the London Dairies. Authentic taste comes via specialist Mediterranean and Middle Eastern imports from De Bono and Belazu.
Our passion is to be welcoming and convivial and to create an atmosphere of wellbeing as you dine, Federico recalls fondly
'I backpacked extensively through Europe, North Africa and the Middle East in my youth. I was inspired not just by the traditional food preparation techniques and consummate cooking skills of what is now known as the ‘Mediterranean diet’ but also by the reverence that these countries and cultures maintained for the meal as an institution and social bond'
