London, Food and Travel with an Alternative Twist!

#SecretSupperClub With Fullers *

When it comes to Greenwich, I’m beyond biased; I’ve visited there since I was a child and many years later I got my degree there too. I think I’d move there in an instance if anyone asked. The essence of the place feels me with nostalgia and warmth so when we were asked to head to The Sail Loft for a #SecretSupperClub I replied yes within seconds.

Walking along past the Cutty Sark brought back fond memories of evenings where too much cider was drunk and a lot of fun was had, but I was heading somewhere new tonight to create a new set of memories.

[.LIFE.] it's pouring with rain outside and we are getting ready to go out for a run! I'd much prefer to be hanging out in cute pubs in my favourite part of London again! #lbloggers #lbloggersuk #lblogger #london #londonblog #londonblogger #cuttysark #greenwich #historiclondon #boat #greenwichlondon #cuttysarkship #thingstodoinlondon #visitlondon #blackandwhite

We were the first to arrive at The Sail Loft so we used this time to take a snap away at the stunning view outside and to make friends with the PR team!

When we sat we were told about the amazing ways that Fullers Kitchen are developing their young chefs with competitions, trips abroad and scholarships. Most of the head chefs have come from Michelin Star backgrounds too so they certainly know how to cook up the most impressive of food. But at The Sail Loft, there’s nothing poncy about the portions, they are full of flavour and fill you to the brim.

The starters were placed in front of us so we could share with the lovely people we got sat with, and we got to try so many delights! Below are the West Mersea oysters, shallot vinaigrette, lemon (£9/£17).

We also chowed down on octopus with chorizo jam, confit fennel, and crispy capers (£9), the most scrumptious pumpkin and chilli sou with, crispy sage and hazelnut mascarpone (£5), Venison Carpaccio, pear and almond vinaigrette, cocoa nibs, Manchego (£8.5) wich reminded me of one of first dates Mike and I had two years ago now, and Roasted Beetroots, honeycomb, goat’s cheese mousse, almonds with grape molasses (£6.5 / £11).

Yes, we did get friendly enough to share a bowl of soup between 6 of us, it was quite a nice highlight of the evening! We also got a last minute chance to devour some of the Seared Scallops, pork belly, celeriac puree, apple & truffle vinaigrette (£9) which was one of the starter highlights for me.

When it came to the main course, we chose our own…

Of course I tried out the burger! This was the Chalcroft Farm Beef Burger with HSB (so close to being my initials!) Gouda, bacon, Bertinet cholla bun, secret sauce, pickles, served with chips (£13). It was so bloody good! I really like how the bacon tasted a little more like pancetta adding a touch of class!

Mike shocked me with his order…

The Roasted Duck Breast, with gin infused blackberries, crispy potato, carrot puree, juniper jus (£16) and I’m not going to lie, I had serious food envy! The duck was roasted to perfection and it melted in your mouth.

I was also a little in love with the presentation of the 8oz Rib Eye Steak, that was served with dauphinoise chips, truffle crust, watercress & Marmite hollandaise (£25). Just look at it…

Those potatoes look like the dream!

As with the starters, we were able to try a selection of the desserts…

This was the Baked Alaska with poached peaches & raspberries (£6) which was so moreish!

We also tried the Banoffee sundae (£6) which was Mike’s favourite, the Lemon tart, with soft marshmallow, and blackberries (£6) and my favourite, Paul’s Chocolate Brownie, served with salted caramel ice cream & peanuts (£6).

To accompany the meal we had great wines, even better company and views that we didn’t leave.

Well, maybe Mike did, he could see his office after all!

  1. […] took my best friend to his first blogging event with EatFirst, dined with Fullers Kitchen at the Sail Loft,  I made cocktails, had a lot of meaty goodness at Soho Joe’s, and we gave ourselves a night […]
