Harden's says

London catering company Social Pantry are running two venues at the newly renovated Pitzhanger Manor (built in 1804 by acclaimed British architect Sir John Soane as a country retreat): the new eateries include a kiosk in Walpole Park, to be called Pitzhanger Pantry, and Soane's Kitchen, in the former walled kitchen garden - local, seasonal food, with Sunday brunch a speciality. Social Pantry's popular, fundraising Social Suppers will also be held here in future.

“A great setting in Walpole Park with an amazing terrace” is a highpoint at this all-day café in the walled garden of Ealing’s fine Pitzhanger Manor (designed by Sir John Soane). It’s been on a bit of a rollercoaster ride in recent times, closing, changing operators, re-opening, and then with another change of chef in August 2021 (Andre Rhone from Richmond’s Bingham). Most recommended for breakfast, so that seems a good way of dipping your toe in the water here.

“A lovely room and outside garden area”“great on a sunny day” – makes this “a brilliant addition to the west London scene”: the new café in the garden adjacent to Pitzhanger Manor (owned, in days past, by the renowned architect Sir John Soane). But while there’s a “good-value set menu” and an à la carte with something for everyone (“covering veggie/vegan/flexi/typical diets”), some dishes are “expensive and poor”.

For 31 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).
