MasterChef: The Professionals winner Steven Edwards is to open an eponymous restaurant at the Bingham Riverhouse hotel in Richmond.

Edwards will continue to oversee his Hove fine dining restaurant Etch, which opened in 2017.

Edwards revealed on Instagram that his London debut will - in contrast to the tasting-menu only Etch - offer a full a la carte menu.

According to its website, Steven Edwards at Bingham Riverhouse will ‘celebrate an ever evolving menu showcasing local and British produce’ with dishes created ‘to be nostalgic, fun and have a real purity of flavour’.

Dishes will include 'crab' (crab mayonnaise, crab jelly, caviar); 'lamb' (lamb saddle, broccoli puree, shepherd's pie); 'brill' (butter-roast brill, Jerusalem artichoke, preserved lemon); and 'pink grapefruit' (pink grapefruit sorbet, carrot cake, mandarin parfait). 

The dining room at Bingham Riverhouse - which was called The Bingham prior to an overhaul and re-brand at the beginning of last year - held a Michelin star between 2010 and 2011 when chef Shay Cooper was at the helm.

The most recent chef to head the stove was Andy Cole, who started at the hotel in 2010 under Cooper and was promoted to head chef in 2015.

“I’m really pleased that we’re taking our next step into London by collaborating with Bingham Riverhouse,” says Edwards of his appointment.

“I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved in Hove so far, and with so much more to come there, this feels like the right way to continue to grow our portfolio.”

“We’re very excited about collaborating with Steven. Since our days together at South Lodge (in West Sussex) over ten years ago, we’ve always tried to find ways to work together and he’s taken over the kitchen at the Bingham as a guest chef a few times in the past,” says Bingham Riverhouse manager Erick Kervaon.

“His dish innovation and eye-popping presentation is inspiring and we see a great fit with this and the next chapter of Bingham Riverhouse”.
