The Table

Southwark, London

It’s rare in the chain-peppered streets around Tate Modern to find a truly independent joint serving ethical, artisanal British food with its own calm, apple-tree- lined terrace out back that’s a springtime dream. While tempted by the French toast with maple syrup and whipped cream, or the famous Veggie Stack, we plump for the Long Weekender – a dish of crushed ripe avocado, Outer Hebridean-smoked salmon and two runny poached eggs. Because, hey, it might be Monday, but in this place it feels possible to grab a little slice of the weekend any day of the week.
