Waterloo Food Festival


The Waterloo area is packed with restaurants, pubs, cafés, bars and specialist food shops and they've collaborated to stage this festival of exclusive events, tastings and demonstrations, beginning on Thursday July 3 with an evening food fair opposite the Old Vic Theatre. Check out the Ginger Pig barbecues at local supermarket Greensmiths (Friday July 11 and Friday July 18, 11.30am-3pm), find out more about Alma de Cuba coffee at a lunchtime tasting and talk (Tuesday July 15, 1pm-2pm), or enter the Waterloo charity bake-off (Thursday July 31; judging noon-1pm. cake sale 5pm-7pm). This Is Rubbish is creating an Exotic Excess Cafe (Saturday July 5, 11am-4pm) inviting visitors to engage with the issue of food waste with 'place mat pledges' and a 'menue of activism'.

Bitter disappointment. The "beer and burger festival" was a mere heap of plastic chairs, a BBQ serving what can only be described as "gritty" burgers and two beer stands on a concrete square. Very much oversold and not worth the 50 miles we travelled to experience it.

We, The Dark Knights of Cholesterol, hosted a wine & cheese evening at the 1901 Arts Club. While I'll leave it to others to comment on our event, I wanted to say that the venue and its staff are both top notch. The space is beautiful, fully equipped in terms of kitchen, service & IT and is perfect for classy, intimate events. Highly recommended.
