The Gardening Society with The Ethicurean

Escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street at The Gardening Society rooftop, as this ethically conscious Modern British restaurant serves up seasonal produce.

Run by brothers Matthew and Iain Pennington in a Victorian walled garden in the Mendip Hills, the award-winning Ethicurean restaurant comes to London in a pop-up on John Lewis's Oxford Street Roof Garden. The Ethicurean’s interior decor has been refreshed with nostalgic elements of yesteryear, including a vintage piano which takes pride of place in the restaurant. 

Seasonal, ethically-sourced and taking cues from historic London recipes, the hearty and imaginative menu offers a selection of sumptuous autumn and winter dishes with a taste of Somerset. Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Background Bars are offering up a range of seasonal serves during the winter residency crafted to complement The Ethicurean’s hearty food menu.

From 6 November be transported to a setting reminiscent of a yuletide village green as a grandiose 12ft Christmas tree, adorned with twinkly lights and vintage baubles, leads the way towards the resident rooftop pub, The Gardener’s Arms, where you will be invited to sing along to their favourite festive songs.
