So after about two years Clissold House in Clissold Park is now open again. The new cafe ("The House") is run by Company of Cooks (who also run Kenwood House cafe amongst others), and the house is run by GLL. First impressions are good: the new sloping grass at the front looks great, the cafe seems excellent, and the interior of the house is fairly amazing if you remember what it was like before. The spiral staircase in particular is spectacular. The cafe is open in line with park opening times, and the upstairs rooms and reception area can be booked (evenings too) for events. Overall this seems like an excellent start to 2012 for Clissold Park.
I've taken a few photos today which you can see in the slideshow below, or see the collection on Flickr here.
