Best Gastronomic Experience
Bingham’s Executive Chef, Shay Cooper, serves recurrently changing, seasonal British menus for lunch and dinner. First-class quality ingredients are the basics of Shay’s cooking and his dishes lean towards the delicate, cleverly built around one key, seasonal ingredient. Shay Cooper is passionate about obtaining locally where possible and has made connections with local businesses, including Teddington Cheese, and Sandy’s fishmonger. The dining room is a warm area with golden velvet banquettes, feature mirrors and droplet chandeliers – while the dominant feature are the floor to ceiling French windows overlooking the hotel’s landscaped gardens, and the Thames. Boutique hotel Bingham was highly praised for its use of local suppliers and sustainable procedures including a ‘sustainable fish’ tasting menu.
Best Small Hotel/B&B
Boutique hotel Bingham offers 15 rooms, spread across two Georgian town houses, which are modern to suit modern tastes but have a vintage twist according to the historical character of the buildings. The room names, which include Baudelaire and Calirrhoe, echo the rich literary tradition of the building. All rooms feature Art Deco inspired furniture and two have lavish antique four-poster beds. The top tier rooms (River and Superior River Design Rooms) offer peaceful river views and whirlpool baths. Bathroom products are supplied by Natural Products, 'We Live Like This Too', which forms a small part of Bingham’s ‘green’ philosophy.
“We are absolutely delighted to have won in two categories at the BT Visit London Awards last night,” says Bingham’s owner, Samantha Trinder. “We strive to offer every guest a fantastic experience, whether they’re coming to eat, stay or have an event with us. We are especially grateful to our wonderful team who work extremely hard to achieve this, and of course to all our guests, and to those who voted for us.”
