I could not agree more Fanny. We buy via Cofco from small local & organic producers We believe in plate lickingly good food without fuss and usually with a nod to Italy, Scandinavia or France as it’s what we know and love

What portion size? If you mean the white platter what you see is our wild local venison carpaccio with pickled girolles - a starter.

We are about 5 min walk from the Junction, between Hills Rd sixth formers college and Homerton college!

The portion size on the boeuf bourguignon would make me very cross. The rest looks gorgeous.

Sounds delish!

Clair Humphrey - this looks nice x
