Since launching in 1984, this much-loved eatery has become synonymous with Chelsea Farmers’ Market – especially on fine days, when queues run down the street and everyone graduates to the expansive leafy terrace and outdoor courtyard. Feel-good music is piped through loudspeakers while groups of local revellers sit at picnic tables eating, chatting and consuming endless bottles of rosé. Meanwhile, whitewashed furniture, Laura Ashley neutrals and surfing prints offer a whiff of the Hamptons for the arty types who head to the tiny shack of a dining room in search of jugs of cocktails and high-comfort international food. Expect a hotchpotch of classics ranging from burgers, battered haddock fillets and rib-eye steak with fries to mezze platters, Greek salad and sticky toffee pudding. It’s a fun place, though not as affordable as its hippy looks would suggest.
