The Lodge Winter Pop-Up

The Lodge Winter Pop-Up

What do a secret garden, a wine cellar and a ski lodge have in common? Jimmy Garcia of course. The King of pop-ups is getting ready to launch his latest short-term dining experience, and this time it’s alpine. Following the success of last winter’s residency in Balham, The Lodge is back by popular demand; this time above a pub in Clapham.

No warming winter menu is complete without fondues, wild game and hot cocktails, and The Lodge is delivering these aplenty. Cooking up a storm on his state of the art range, specially imported from Courcheval, Jimmy’s dishes include roast partridge with caramelised pear, venison tea, haunch ravioli and wild boar scotch eggs – probably not the best place for a vegetarian. In true ski resort style, sharing dishes are a key part of the menu so as you tear up Chateaubriand or dip into a rich comte fondue it might be easy to forget you are 70 feet from Clapham North underground station and 700 miles from the Alps.

Ingredients are carefully sourced; cured meats from Asturias (Jimmy’s father’s home town), vegetables from wild foragers in Kent and wild game from Surrey. A highlight has got to be 1936, the beer which is brewed at the foot of the Swiss Alps. Book ASAP to avoid disappointment – last year’s Balham offering had a two month waiting list.

The Lodge runs from Thursday 8th October – March 2016, open Tuesday – Sunday for dinner, Friday – Saturday for lunch and Sundays for brunch.

409 Clapham Road, (Above The Clapham North pub), SW9 9BT.
