One of my favourite local discoveries since I moved to south London is the residential area of St John’s Hill. Located between Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Town, the street is quiet and full of lovely eateries.
St John’s Hill is the perfect destination for foodies. I particularly love the fish & chips at The Fish Club, the coffee at Birdhouse and, of course, the food at Ben’s Canteen, which I blogger about here.
Starting tomorrow, The Fabulous Feast! is a week-long celebration of St John’s Hill, a chance for the local community to get together and also to spread the word about the fantastic food & drinks that the street has to offer.
For the entire week, the restaurants, bars, pubs and cafés will offer set menus to diners for just £15. There will also be cooking demos at the Fish Club and Powder Keg Diplomacy, live DJ’s and bands at The Plough, a mini farmers’ market and a pop-up dinner by Ben Spalding at Ben’s Canteen.
Two weeks ago I took my parents to Ben’s Canteen for a Sunday Roast. We were blessed with exactly two hours of sunshine, amongst weeks of rain, just enough to enjoy a stroll up and down the hill!
We started with the famous All Day Breakfast Scotch Eggs.
Followed by Roast Rump of Orkney Beef with Yorkshire Pudding and roasted vegetables and a glass of good wine.
Finished with Rolo Tart with Ice-Cream and Rhubarb Eton Mess.
And a slice of Dessert Deli Carrot Cake for my dad!
Spot on as usual, Ben’s Canteen never fails to impress!
Don’t miss The Fabulous Feast, now it’s the perfect occasion to visit St John’s Hill.
