New to Bookatable this week, Jimmy’s Farm restaurant in Ipswich is dedicated to serving up hand-reared and locally sourced produce. Situated in a lovingly-restored 200 year old barn on the site of a working farm, all produce on the rustic British menu is either grown and reared on site or sourced from local suppliers, and the on-site farm shop, butchers and wine cellar means all the produce can be purchased to later be enjoyed at home.

Nestled deep underground below Clapham Common Tube Station is WC, an innovative new bar opening. Located in a 100-year-old former public bathroom, WC has been transformed into a chic and stylish venue, where old bathroom doors are recycled into table tops, and exposed brickwork and sleek chesterfield sofas fill the space. Serving up wines and charcuterie, with meat cuts hanging from the rustic bar, WC is anything but traditional.
5. Kerb Food
Every 3rd Saturday throughout summer, Kerb takes its residence at Granary Square to give Londoners a chance to sample some of the finest street food on the planet. Tuck into tasty burritos from Kimchinary or a freshly-caught crab burger with avocado from Crabbieshack, and soak up the picturesque surroundings by strolling along Regent’s Canal with an ice-cold beer or a signature cocktail in hand.
