A Charles Dickens-Worthy Restaurant in London

Issue 90 · London Design 2013 · September 19, 2013

Beagle Restaurant (named after an old locomotive that once chugged along the original Northern line) is situated by the Hoxton overground railway station in the London borough of Hackney. Co-owners (and brothers) Danny and Kieran Clancy hired London-based design collective Fabled Studio to restore the three railway arches and turn the space into a 52-seat dining area, bar, cafe, and large outdoor patio. To learn more, go to Beagle.
