Gastro walk in South Kensington

4 October 2018, 3.30 – 5.30pm

Meeting place: South Kensington tube station, Pelham Street exit, by the flower stall.

We can finally reveal the details of our gastronomic tour in South Kensington, where we will visit a selection of restaurants and specialist food retailers for a small group of members.

Starting from South Kensington tube station, we will do a quick sweep through Bute Street, home of one of Kensington’s famed Saturday markets, before special visits to the oldest of the cheese eateries La Cave à Fromage,the deli and grocer Brompton Food Market and the Italian Orsini café, where, in each case, we will have a talk from the management and have a chance to sample some of the products. Finally we will be welcomed to The Hour Glass pub on the Old Brompton Road.

The group will be limited to 15 maximum, so sign up soon to avoid disappointment!
