Opening a bakery seems to be what every restaurateur is up to these days... the team from Jolene are on the bandwagon, took over a former air conditioning shop to open a bakery and restaurant in September 2020; fka Big Jo Bakery.
Harden's survey result
From the same hipster-favourite stable as Primeur and Westerns Laundry, this eat-in artisan bakery between Finsbury Park and Holloway serves a small, simple menu from the blackboard as well as pâtisserie and brunchish fare from breakfast onwards. Feedback is relatively limited, but one Hornsey reporter feels it’s “worth crossing north London for”.
In September 2020, the Jolene (Primeur, Westerns Laundry) team opened a spin-off between Finsbury Park and Holloway: a sizeable eat-in café overlooking the street with floor-to-ceiling windows and serving pâtisserie, salads and a selection of pizza and pizza fritta (deep-fried calzone).
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
