A Little Decadence

Lost and Found

From the designer of the Natural History Museum Alfred Waterhouse, step through the arching gothic doors of this Grade II listed former town hall and into the sweeping bar and restaurant, filled with ethereal artefacts from the world of mythological Victorian Professor Emily B. Kingsley; expert in the study of butterflies.


Lost and Found

Intricately printed wallpapers with scenes of nature and Lepidoptera, hanging floral arrangements and vintage pendant lights create a sense of mystery in this elaborate drinking den and restaurant. Find yourself at home on one of the leather wing-back couches, geometrically designed metal chairs or heavily embroidered benches and drink in the scene.

Ascend the ‘Shhh’ topped staircase and enter The Board Room, the perfect place for a friends and family intimate celebration, or for your next business lunch. Or take a left and push aside the portrait of Emily, to slip away into a hidden bar where secrets are shared over sultry sips of carefully crafted cocktails. Rumour has it there are bookcases lined with the good Professor’s teachings, and plenty of chest tables decorated with tea lights that create an air of mystery.

When it comes to cocktails, there is so much to choose from… the only issue will be which one!



Infused spirits and homemade concoctions are mixed, muddled and beautifully served by the city’s most creative mixologists. Sip your way through the extensive list of tipples all created by an expertly trained bar team, including a collection of signature ‘Lost’ cocktails, celebrating twists on forgotten drinks of the past. Delight in The Port of Amsterdamreminiscent of the classic Negroni cocktail, or sip on a Long Lost Island of Absolut Citron Vodka and Briottet Crème de Bergamote. A King’s Bramble with two blends of Sipsmith gin, Chambord and fresh autumnal berries is a sweet nightcap not to miss. ‘Found’ cocktails bring added decadence to our most-loved concoctions including a Gingerbread Milk Punch with raisin infused Appleton Estate Signature Blend rum and Briottet Pain d ’épices and the Kentucky Peach Smash, making an entrance with Maker’s Mark bourbon whiskey and peach bitters.

From sweet to dry, or strong to light, navigate the ‘Taste map’ to find your signature sip or join Emily’s cocktail club every Monday to Friday from 5pm-8pm and enjoy your ‘Found’ cocktail for £5.

And to eat…

Sit beneath the impressive vaulted ceilings and draped lighting while savouring an eclectic menu ranging from the classic to the contemporary. Steak fans can enjoy a wide array of charcoal oven steaks handpicked from the finest beef producers across Britain and the US. Each steak is matured for a minimum of 28 days then cooked to order in the Josper oven. Choose from 35-day matured British cuts of rump or sirloin, or opt for an USDA grade rib eye from the States. A 20oz tender chateaubriand is ideal for sharing with lashings of peppercorn or béarnaise sauce.


Modern must-have sourdough pizzas come adorned with every topping imaginable, including peppadew peppers, chorizo iberico, smoked streaky bacon, caramelised pineapple and West Country brie to name a few, before being cooked to perfection at 350 degrees in the wood fired oven. Relax in style with The Lost & Found’s Sunday Roast collection. Choose from British sirloin, roast chicken breast with crispy bacon and stuffing, and slow-cooked belly of pork with crunchy crackling, all served with beef dripping roast potatoes, honey-roasted seasonal vegetables, cauliflower cheese, brown butter croûtons, Yorkshire pudding and rich gravy.
