Kricket Hatch

21st September 2018


Indian small plates concept Kricket has opened its third London site, in White City. The 100-cover restaurant has launched in the Television Centre development at the former BBC TV Centre.


The 3,600 square foot space also houses a cocktail bar offering snacks, a 40-cover terrace, a large communal table and booth seating. The offering has moved slightly away from small plates towards more individual courses.


Sunday brunch features larger cuts of meat such as goat cooked for groups to eat family-style. Breakfast is also planned for the all-day spot. New dishes on the menu include spiced cod’s roe with pickled mustard seeds and telicherry roti; grouse kebab with lardo, greengage chutney and cobnuts; and tandoori wood pigeon with smoked raita, garlic achar, salmi potatoes and pickled blackberries.


Kricket co-owner Rik Campbell told Hot Dinners: “It will be nice to do something a little different here.”


Campbell and Will Bowlby opened the first Kricket site in Soho in January 2017. They launched a second, in Brixton, in May this year. Other operators at the £8bn development include Soho House, better pizza brand Homeslice, D&D London’s Bluebird and better burger brand Patty & Bun.
