Lauded Bristol restaurant The Ethicurean is bringing its hearty comfort food to London for the first time this week.

The West Country site is swapping its walled garden for a two-month residency on the roof of John Lewis Oxford Street from 21 October.

The Bristol restaurant, part of the area’s booming dining scene,​ won praise from Marina O’Loughlin for its ‘outstandingly squidy’ toffee apple cake, and was dubbed the ‘perfect country lunch’ by Xanthe Clay in The Telegraph​.

The cake in question will be making an appearance on the London dessert menu, alongside a stout pudding served with an ‘inappropriate’ amount of cream, and an almond milk sorbet.

Main courses will include truffle and porcini mushroom pork sausage with buttered mashed potato and a cider and onion sauce; a take on Welsh rarebit with Chinese kimchi; and a venison and bacon pie with stout, potato and cider and juniper sauce.

There will also be seasonal cocktails from Background Bars, ranging from a warming Pumpkin Punch with bourbon and Maraschino cherry liquer; to an ‘8 Spices’ mulled negroni.

“We will be bringing a few of our favourite dishes from Brisol to London for the first time, including some iconic and hearty British classics which have been given a special Ethicurean twist,” says Ethicurean owners Iain and Matthew Pennington.

"For anyone visiting the roof this winter, make sure you try our secret sticky toffee apple cake, the limited edition Christmas venison pie and the melt in the mouth Welsh rabbit with Chinese kimchi for the ultimate Ethicurean experience."

The John Lewis rooftop will open from 21 October – 24 December.
