Starters with a Twist

Let your culinary adventure at 1 Lombard Street begin with our unique starters. Picture this: a perfect sphere of creamy La Latteria burrata nestled on your plate, fresh from our local suppliers. Once you slice into it, it spills out the creamiest, dreamiest center, perfectly paired with a tangy heritage tomato salsa that's the bee's knees.

Should you fancy a meatier bite, our Dingley Dell ham hock is the way to go. Dingley Dell, for those who might not know, is a farm renowned for its sustainably raised, happy pigs. Our ham hock is slow-cooked to fall-off-the-bone perfection, served atop a bed of hearty lentils, and garnished with vibrant gherkins and capers for that extra punchy kick. It's a harmony of flavors, you're in for a treat!

Main Course: A Gastronomic Delight

Now onto the main event, the main courses; Our head chef, James Holden, prides himself on creating a menu that's as diverse and vibrant as London itself. The star of the show? Our Old Spot pork double sausages. These aren't your run-of-the-mill bangers, oh no! Sourced from Old Spot pigs - a rare breed celebrated for its succulence and flavor, these sausages are a meat lover's dream. They're full-bodied and hearty, served with a creamy, rich mash that will warm the cockles of your heart and a homemade onion gravy that's thick enough to stand your spoon in. It's comfort food at its most sophisticated!

But let's not let the pork steal all the limelight. Our chicken is pan-fried to perfection, topped with a free-range fried egg, and served with a crispy anchovy. The saltiness of the anchovy, the creaminess of the egg yolk, and the juicy tenderness of the chicken create a trio of tastes that'll have you clucking with delight. Our menu has a rich tapestry of options guaranteed to leave you spoilt for choice. So, are you ready to take your taste buds on a journey? Let's tuck in!
