Open House to open the Broadcaster in White City

Spanning four floors, the venue will house a new pub, restaurant and rooftop bar

Open House has announced it is set to open a new White City site, the Broadcaster. Spanning four floors, the venue will house a new pub, restaurant and rooftop bar.

Open House is a collection of “timeless” pubs, or ‘open houses’ across London. It says its main objective is to celebrate community and build a brand that respects the history of its locations.

This new venue is located alongside White City’s Television Centre, and Open House states that the space will introduce an offering of “premium” British pub food, in relaxed surroundings that celebrate local heritage.

Open House previously launched The Lighterman at Kings Cross in 2016, which “played a part in the regeneration of the area and the restaurant now stands as an iconic destination in a thriving social hub of London”. It says the team has the same goal in mind for the Broadcaster.

For its menu, the Broadcaster’s focus will be placed on sourcing sustainable, local, British produce with a drinks list curated to include British craft beers, up and coming spirits brands and craft distilleries. The wine list will also feature a selection of low intervention, organic and biodynamic wines from emerging to established estates with many available to try by the glass.

“Hearty” British pub food with a modern twist will be served in the ground floor pub and terrace, whilst the first floor will have a dining room menu. An on-the-go kitchen service on the rooftop will serve bar snacks and bbq food.

Ankur Wishart, co-founder and managing director of Open House, said: “We’re thrilled to finally be opening the doors of The Broadcaster this September. The project has been three years in the making and the team have worked tirelessly to overcome the challenges brought on from the pandemic to create a truly special venue. 

“The pergola structure on the rooftop is an achievement and I’m excited for everybody to experience it. The Broadcaster will offer something for both the local community and the London foodie. It is a place for everyone and every occasion. We believe The Broadcaster will complement the regeneration of this cultural and creative district of London.”
