Acorn House Restaurant

About Acorn House Restaurant

Come to Acorn House Restaurant in London's King's Cross for a great meal and leave with a clear conscience. Acorn House is London's very first completely eco-friendly restaurant, from the veg ink on the menus to the used chip fat that runs Acorn's green taxi service to the eco-friendly means by which the seasonal ingredients arrive at the kitchen, this restaurant leads the way. The design is sleek and modern with a visible kitchen at one end. Head Chef Arthur Potts changes the Modern London menu at least monthly to take advantage of peak produce. (Psst. Try Acorn's beetroot soup.) The international wine list features Sussex and Kentish labels and a training programme benefits local people.
