Opening date revealed for first Farmer J restaurant

On Monday 3 September, Farmer J is opening its first restaurant on King William Street, London Bridge. Known for bringing the best of the fields to the City, Farmer J will throw open the doors all day long and into the night, with dishes influenced by the Mediterranean and beyond.

Farmer J Fieldtrays and Redemption Roaster speciality coffees will kick things off for early risers and continue throughout the day for lunch. As the evening draws in, the spherical pendant lights will be dimmed in the modern, urban, copper-accented space, offset by greenery and velvet seating, while old school tunes play and cocktails are served from the timber and tile-cladded bar.

Small plates will lend themselves to a quick bite at the bar or individual starters such as Green chermoula chicken skewers and Laffa bags for dipping into the signature Chilli Plate.

More substantial dishes will include aromatic Grilled lime leaf prawns, Roast beef with tomato tartare and Whole roasted celeriac, with other options from the field including Freekeh herb salad with goat’s yoghurt, Roast beets with crème fraiche and the ultimate Veggie burger.

To wash it all down, cocktails feature the Chilli Tequila Sour, Gin Rhubarb Fizz and Peachy Old Fashioned, perfect for unwinding after a long hard day, with lager, ale and kombucha all poured on tap.

Weekend brunch will see The Shak, an authentic spicy shakshuka to share, a Sunday spatchcock, Bagel deli plate and BYO Field bowls, with options from Sesame spiced tofu, Miso chicken and Raw ponzu salmon, as well as Banana French toast with tahini and a variety of Avos on toast.

Smoothies blitzed on request including the Hale Kale with coconut water, pineapple, apple, kale, ginger and lemon, and the Nut Buster with almond milk, almond butter, peanut butter, tahini and date syrup, while classic Bloody Marys are there to start off the weekend with a kick.

Farmer J founder, Jonathan Recanati said, “It’s time for Farmer J to plough the next field, so we’re looking forward to opening our first restaurant at King William Street for dinner and cocktails, as well as relaxed weekend brunches. Most importantly, our ethos will remain the same: respecting our fantastic produce, and cooking real food with sustainable, seasonal ingredients.”
