The Larder is a restaurant, bar, bakers and shop all rolled into one glossy package. It is on st. John street in clerkenwell, an area already laden with bars and restaurants but this is a welcome addition. The bread is made ont he premises and is for sale to take home alongside other pastries. The meat and fish are all bought from trusted and named sources and there are good and unusual vegetarian options, for example, asparagus, poached egg and parmesan or vegetable paella. The food is rich and tasty and the portions generous, the service attentive and friendly without being manic. The place itself is all clean lines and mood lighting with an open kitchen, an arrangement I am becoming increasingly fond of.
our meal for two with two good glasses of wine came to £35 which I think is pretty reasonable for such good quality. We will absolutely be going back.
