If you’ve visited us recently you may’ve noticed we’ve subtly updated our interior, and expanded our opening hours as part of a spring update.

With recent glorious sunshine streaming through the full-height windows overlooking Cutting Room Square and Blossom Street, you’ll be glad we’ve added some frosting and curtains to make sure the light’s welcome, rather than distracting!

The introduction of soft leather seating, casual booths and a selection of high tables is a natural evolution of the space; perfect for catching up over a drink or some casual dining, creating cosy corners for groups or those that just want to hide away with the Sunday papers. Plants hang from wooden frames and soft furnishings add texture and extra comfort.

Speaking on the new additions, Creative Director & Chef Patron Simon Shaw, said: “We’ve made a few adjustments to the interior of Canto. Until we opened the doors and really lived the space we couldn’t, with the best will in the world, know if we’d got the design right. Now we’ve had the opportunity to see how people use the space and more importantly, how they want to. We’ve made a few tweaks in response to that and they feel right.”

Head Chef Carlos Gomes, added: “I’m really pleased by the response we’ve had. Our ambition has always been to create a real neighbourhood restaurant; somewhere you can pop in for a coffee with the papers, wine with friends or relaxed meal. The interior enhancements provide the perfect space in which to relax, whatever the occasion.”

Due to customer demand we’ve also increased our opening hours for spring, and are now open on Tuesdays to Thursdays from 5pm.
