London’s first truly eco-friendly training restaurant was created to alter the image of the restaurant and hospitality industry as well as transform the way in which people eat out.
Shoreditch Trust, Terrence Higgins Trust and Think.Eat.Drink are the three organisations responsible for Acorn House. It was the dream of Shoreditch Trust and Terrence Higgins Trust to set up a training restaurant for the local community and with the expertise of Think.Eat.Drink this has now become a reality.
With fresh seasonal menus, a dedication to healthy eating, environmental responsibility and a premium, glamorous appeal, this revolutionary and pioneering new concept offers King's Cross residents, businesses and visitors a unique destination dining experience.
Every aspect of Acorn House, from design through to delivery, aims to be environmentally aware and sustainable. The restaurant is built to maximise natural light and uses recycled and organic materials. It also purifies its water on site to minimise plastic and glass usage, uses 'green electricity' and biodegradable products where possible and recycles all kitchen waste. Menus are completely seasonal with ingredients sourced from small independent suppliers. Customers are able to request dishes in different portion sizes in order to minimise wastage.
