Farm-to-table
Featuring a range of small and large plates we have developed a menu that puts sustainability and seasonality at the heart of the kitchen, ensuring maximum taste and minimum waste.
Working alongside Cooking Sections Climavore project on exciting new dishes, food is utilised to follow the new seasonalities resulting from the climate emergency. Fish is never farmed but line-caught, herbs are from Growing Underground in Clapham where they are grown hydroponically and seaweed features due to its high nutrition, zero irrigation properties.
Even the menu has a story – it's printed on 100% recycled paper made with grass fibres at Frogmore Mill in Hemel Hempstead, on the world's first mechanised paper-making machine dating back to 1895, and still in use today.
Open from 9am for breakfast, then all day dining and drinks.

    We ate outside on a beautiful day. I'm not so sure it would have been as nice inside. Very busy and loud in the space

    A very pleasant venue with good menu but the food could be prepared with little more flair and flavour.

    We came for morning coffee. Ordered 2 scones. One was stale and inedible. Sent back. New scone came but no jam. Apparently they had run out of jam. Waitress apologetic but slow and inexperienced. Badly handled.

    We arrived at peak lunch time hours but we did have a reservation, we were on time, yet we were received in a rather haphazard fashion, taking about 15 mins before we were even acknowledged before being directed to a table. The staff were polite, perhaps understaffed, but sadly it did impact our experience. Wine and food good.

    It's a nice cafe/restaurant with that Social media vibe. The Food is good, we went for brunch so had the egg dishes. The Nduja Omelette could have done with more flavour but it was tasty and served hot. The table we were sat at was sticky, clean but sticky, probably from the cleaning solution used. Service was a little slow and the staff were not very attentive, so you had to call out if you needed something. Its good to go at least once especially if you are going to the Gallery.
