After changing ownership and undergoing a five month refurbishment, The Hour Glass finally reopened in September 2015 and is now run by us, Luke Mackay and Dave Turcan. We own Brompton Food Market, a food shop and deli just round the corner on Thurloe Place.
Luke has been in the food and wine business for 17 years, latterly as Borough Market’s demo chef and in-house writer. He was responsible for taking over and turning around the failing Royal Oak in Wiltshire – now rated as one of the best pubs in the country. David’s expertise lie in marketing, communications and business development allied with amazing, albeit amateur skills in the kitchen. We met 20 years ago at Reading University; a friendship forged in many, many inferior pubs to The Hour Glass.
Our chef is Rob Homer and he’s one of the most laid back men you’ll meet. His food philosophy is intrinsically linked to ours and that of Brompton Food Market – “great ingredients, simple cooking”.
We’re always on the lookout for friendly, experienced bar and restaurant staff so send your CV to email@example.com.
Look forward to meeting you soon.
