Welcome to The Shed, the first restaurant by the Gladwin Brothers – one part farmer, one part chef, one part hospitality expert – whose rural West Sussex upbringing is reflected in the food that is served in their small, West London location.
From the outside, the place is a Georgian London townhouse covered in ivy, whilst inside it’s a rustic dining room of mix-and-match furniture with walls covered in farming props and paraphernalia. A clean, well-organised, homely shed of a restaurant. Fitting.
Split into two main sections – slow cooking and fast cooking – the menu delivers small plates of inventive tapas-style food using typically British ingredients. A selection of cured meats and lamb produced from the family farm in Nutbourne, Sussex, are available alongside slow-cooked beef cigars and grilled Tamworth pork.
Drink-wise, award-winning wines and fizzes from the Nutbourne family vineyard sit alongside a selection of British lagers, ales and ciders. The Sussex Martini – as well as many of the other cocktails on offer – follows the regional trend by using Silver Birch vermouth from the Blackdown Distillery in Sussex and Adnam’s Copper House vodka or gin from their distillery in Suffolk.
NOTE: The Shed is open for dinner Monday-Saturday and lunch Tues-Sat. You can make a booking right HERE.
