FIVE OF THE BEST PLACES TO EAT GAME


Tom’s Kitchen

Get your game on while looking out over the marina at St Katharine Docks, where Tom’s Kitchen will be serving up a whole roast grouse for two to share with pate en croute, game chips and plenty of bread sauce.


Bluebird

This Chelsea institution – known for its sprawling courtyard on the King’s Road – is serving a traditional roast grouse with all the trimmings today, so make sure you head down on the Glorious day itself.


Mayfair Pizza Co.

This modern pizzeria off New Bond Street is known for its thin and crispy bases and experimental toppings. From today, it will be serving a series of game pizzas, from smoked mallard to foie gras and venison carpaccio.


Brasserie Blanc

If grouse isn’t your thing but you still want to enter into the spirit of the occasion, then try this pheasant dish, which is smothered in a special game seasoning only found at the Blanc using star anise, cinnamon and juniper berries.


New Street Grill

This City establishment is waiting for the fresh grouse to arrive before it serves up a roast with all the trimmings. From tomorrow, there will be birds aplenty with black pudding, baby carrots and red wine jus.
