Native Feasts new pop up – stampeeeeeede!
I’m a massive fan of Native Feasts, the pop-up supper-club run by Chris Godfrey, the Michelin-starred chef previously of the Sir Charles Napier in Chinnor. I scoffed his incredible food at the Native Feasts event at LASSCO last year and loved it so much that I’ve already got my ticket booked for his next run. Which is – drum roll – March weekends at the riverside Coopers & Co restaurant, (formerly Riverlight) in Bourne End Marina. Yippee! Can’t wait!
I’ve written about Riverlight before – it’s a lovely spot with a balcony that runs three quarters of the way around the building and looks out on the boats and river beyond, where Chris and his drinks whizz collaborator Greg Jones will be staging a hospitable takeover on Friday and Saturday nights through March. Each event runs from around 7pm until 11.30pm, so you can be back watching TV in your slippers by the stroke of twelve. Seriously, that’s my idea of a perfect night.
Check out the menus, which promise classic British dishes with an Asian influence (yes please to smoked trout with wasabi crushed peas). It’s £40 per head for three courses with pre-dinner snickysnacks, except on 17/18 March where you’re treated to a special 6 course tasting menu in collaboration with chef Graham Long (L’Autre Pied, The Chancery), which is £55 per person.
You’re spoilt for supper club choice in London but good ‘uns are few and far between out here in the sticks, so tickets tend to be like gold dust. All the more reason to get booked in pronto.
