Clerkenwell has a new pop-up from luxury Brit brand Burberry which has temporarily extended its West End restaurant (which we're rather fond of) to support the photography exhibition it's putting on by Clerkenwell Green.
Much like the main venue in town, the menu will be heaving with all the delightful mainstays of classic English cuisine, from a Ploughman’s to iced buns and crumpets, and all dutifully including their place of origin, from Tamworth black pudding to Berkswell cheese biscuits.
But there are also some dishes which are exclusive to the event including :
- Autumn vegetable and spelt salad
- Thomas's Ploughman's, including an East Leach sausage roll, Wiltshire Ham, Tamworth Pork pie or Lincolnshire poacher, Colston Basset, Innes button and Yorkshire Cask puff
- Berkswell cheese biscuits
- Crab and Avocado puffs
- Tamworth black pudding scotch quail's eggs
And we went for a visit...
We popped along over the weekend to check out the exhibition (which is actually really worth seeing) and to behold the wonders of the "Cake Table" completely weighed down with cakes like orange and rosemary upside down cake and fondant fancies along with beautiful jellies - greengage and blackberry and quince with apple and rosehip.
The lobster benedict was about as good as you'd imagine it was and while spendy at £28 was just packed with lobster while the Secret Smokehouse salmon with soda bread was an elegant, pared back brunch dish £12. Drinks included an elegant Darjeeling Grand Reserve 2nd flush 2016 and a peach and thyme spritz was a refreshing alternative to the usual sodas.
When: 18 September – 1 October 2017. Opening hours are 10am to 9pm.
Where: Old Sessions House, 22 Clerkenwell Green, London EC1R 0NA
