Every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas

Principles are hard to find these days, especially in the restaurant industry. Gordon’s hiding tax bills, Martha’s baking file-filled cakes and I know I have some unethical stories from my hospo days. One popup food spot however, has ethics in spades. It’s called Diners Union, was founded on the idea that eating well shouldn’t be reserved for the elite and this lively weekend affair offers the one option for all, 5 courses for £15. The food is simple but tasty and covers a new culinary culture every week, honing in on the pallet of the local peasantry. Music will play and corks will pop on the plentiful BYO booze as we herald in Jack’s frost. And if you still need persuasion, the establishment is a not-for-profit to home the homeless. See, you should go on principle.
