Any Excuse for a mint julep.

Tom LeightonAs I write this it’s blazingly hot in Camberwell so this month’s menu is suitably summery. And since it’s summer at last, any excuse will do for a mint julep one of my favourite cocktails. (Actually, that’s not quite true. I love anything with bourbon in it).

There are a few changes in how we will present the food, but none to the quality, I hope. Because of licensing rules, we absolutely have to be out of House by 11pm. To make this a bit easier, I’ll be serving each course in big dishes for each table from now on and you can serve yourselves. It’s a bit quicker, and more sociable! There will also be one less course, but slightly bigger portions all round, and a cocktail to start. Hopefully everyone’s a winner!
