One of the newest venues to hit the Cross area (opened in April) is New Hampton, conveniently situated right next door to Harajuku Gyoza on Bayswater Road. From the street, it’s not obvious how big New Hampton actually is – it’s an enormous 450 person venue with two bars and a fine dining room area. There’s a few people hanging out at the bar when we arrive but contrasted with the large space makes it feel quite empty. We’re seated in the dining room tonight which isn’t much better (less than 10 diners in total), which sort of detracts from the atmosphere. But enough about that and onto the food!
