The Team

Jon Rotheram, Tom Harris and John Ogier first met working together at St. John in 2008 before Rotheram & Harris reunited to launch The Marksman Public House in 2015, awarded London’s first Michelin Pub in 2018.

The launch of Lasdun comes at an exciting time as the duo are joined by John Ogier (Co-Founder of Michelin starred and Worlds 50 Best Shoreditch restaurant, Lyle’s). Lasdun is the first venture from the trio.
