OUR CANOPY BY HILTON EXPERIENCE
We had an amazing stay at Canopy by Hilton. Service was friendly, professional and exceptionally helpful. The room was amazing and very comfortable. We slept very well. All things considered. We found the rooms well appointed and well designed. Breakfast was varied and delicious. The hotel is clean and attractive. By far the most stand out thing really was the team of staff who were so helpful, thoughtful and friendly.
PENNY SQUARES RESTAURANT
Inspired by the international flavours of London’s east end neighbourhoods, Penny Squares offers a delicious menu of modern British cuisine for guests to enjoy. You can discover a fresh take on the tastes that define this area, rich with spice and flavour.
One of the largest migrant groups to seek shelter here were the 17th century Huguenots fleeing persecution in Catholic France. Whilst they brought a range of skills from clock-working to fan-making, it was their talents with wool and silk weaving that would go on to make the East End the very centre of London’s textile trade. Penny Square, once a quilting term known as redwork, was taught to young school girls as an essential part of a young woman’s lifestyle in the 19th century. Our name remembers the embroidered mark left on the city by its talented inhabitants of the past, but the restaurant celebrates all of the vibrant cultures that came, stayed and made this area what it is today.
OUR PENNY SQUARES EXPERIENCE
Penny’s sharing-style menu features: Black Charcoal Beef Fillet, Madras spiced octopus, curried sweet potato, Karkade Cured Salmon, Spiced tempura crab, dressed white crab meat, and Makhni Paneer Samosas. We especially loved the taste of Tamarind glazed grilled aubergine. Another recommended one would be Crusted rack of lamb. Service is just the right level of attentiveness, and very personable. Fine cuisine and excellent wine list, will definitely come back again.
