Jolene fresh baked bread on table

SquareMeal Review of Jolene

Despite its name, this Newington Green site is not a Dolly Parton themed bar, and is instead an all-day bakery and restaurant from the team behind Westerns Laundry and Primeur. Jolene throws open its doors from 9am, serving up a selection of freshly-baked goods including raisin bread and sausage rolls, as well as sweeter bites such as madeleines, croissants and cinnamon buns.

Come evening, guests can pick from the daily-changing blackboard menu, which includes a mix of pastas, stews and salads. To share, diners can pick from grilled cod on the bone with olives and artichokes, or a 1kg T-bone steak, finished with parmesan and rocket. Puddings meanwhile see a choice of tarts and cheeses, or apricot and butter pudding for two. The wine list is as stripped back as the earthy interiors, offering a small selection of white, red and sparkling, alongside cocktails and beers. Dine at the counter if you’re looking for a quick pit-stop, or opt for the outdoor terrace if you want to linger.
