Spotlight on a trader
15 April 2019
One One Four is a neighbourhood restaurant located in the heart of Teddington High Street. Their concept is simple – contemporary dining in a relaxed environment. It’s food inspired by fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, paired with an eclectic selection of wines, gin and innovative cocktails.. One One Four is owned by a husband and wife team, Sam and Alex Berry who also own restaurant, No 97, in Surbiton. We interviewed Sam Berry to find out more about him and the restaurant.

How long have you been trading in Teddington?
We have been in Teddington for just over a year and loving every minute of it!
What was your vision when you launched?
Our concept is where the City meets the Countryside. Beautiful interior whilst offering seasonal menus. We wanted to create a new dining experience where the focus was on the overall experience rather than just the food. We wanted the food, drinks, staff and atmosphere to all play an important part.
What makes the business stand out?
I think our restaurant stands out from the moment you set eyes on it to the moment you leave. Visually it is very appealing and once inside it is welcoming with a great atmosphere. We emphasize on everything from the quality of ingredients to the staff.
