Video: Did you help a South London restaurant open its second set of doors?

The Exhibition Rooms is an award-winning restaurant and bar based in Crystal Palace, winning Time Out’s best local restaurant in 2009. It was started in 2008 by two friends, David Massey and Geoff Ridgeon, and has since gained an excellent reputation on a number of restaurant review sites. Geoff is an experienced restaurateur and David is the head chef, having worked alongside Anthony Worrall Thompson.

In February, they took out a business loan through Funding Circle which was funded by 763 people and organisations across the UK, so they could develop a new restaurant site.

In this video you’ll meet David and Geoff and hear from them first-hand about how their restaurant started and why they believe they’ve got something special.
