Social Eating House

On 19th April 2013, chef and restaurateur Jason Atherton opened his second London restaurant, Social Eating House, in Soho on Poland Street. Social Eating House is an informal and affordable dining experience with a contemporary bistro menu paying homage to the best of British cooking with international influences.

Paul Hood, who has worked alongside Atherton for six years, is heading up the kitchen at Social Eating House, creating a diverse menu. The simple yet carefully created dishes are complimented by relaxed and attentive service in the comfortable, humble setting. Inspired by the buzz surrounding the resurgence of Soho, Atherton’s vision has been aiming at creating a restaurant where diners can enjoy the key elements of the current London dining scene.

Russell Sage Studios, the restaurant’s designers, have worked closely with Atherton to create an eclectic room full of character. Exposed brick walls, traditional whitewashed copper ceilings and weathered leather banquet seats are complimented by key pieces of restored furniture on the ground-floor dining area. The first floor bar, called the Blind Pig, has a similar vintage twist with antique mirrored ceilings and reclaimed wooden chairs. In the bar, mixologist Gareth Evans has created a menu of signature. The basement houses a hidden ‘Employees Only’ dining space with a 15 seated wrap-around striking bar. An informal set menu is available, offering group diners a relaxed experience.

Chef Paul Hood

Paul Hood started his culinary career at Fairfield Halls in Croydon where he learnt the ropes of working in a professional and high-pressured kitchen.

After two years, he undertook a role at The Glasshouse in Kew, where he continued to gain experience and skills, before moving on to Thackeray's Tunbridge Wells in 2004.

In 2005, Hood joined Gordon Ramsay’s Maze as sous chef where he first met Jason Atherton. He was soon promoted to senior sous chef, firmly becoming Atherton’s right hand man. When Atherton launched his first solo restaurant Pollen Street Social in 2011, Hood moved with him and was appointed as head chef. The restaurant opened to critical acclaim and was awarded its first Michelin star in 2012. Hood has played an instrumental role in helping to define Pollen Street Social as one of London’s most esteemed restaurants. Hood now heads up kitchen at Social Eating House, Jason Atherton’s second London restaurant that opened in April 2013.
