Native, 3 Neal's Yd, London, WC2H 9DP

nativeA chef who trained at River Cottage and went on to found a supper club with his business partner has announced their first permanent restaurant in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden. Ivan Tisdall-Downes and Imogen Davis’s game-focused venture, Native, launching in early-February, will specialise in rare-breed meats, wild food and nose-to-tail cooking.

Davis and Tisdall-Downes, who previously trained at River Cottage, met at university and ran supper clubs before launching Native. Their passion is nose-to-tail and stem-to-root eating, and through their new joint venture they hope to change the public’s perception of game meat – making is more accessible in both approach and price.

The constantly changing lunch and dinner menus will feature dishes like: Native’s signature Pigeon Kebab and Southern Fried Rabbit, alongside foraged and vegetarian dishes. The drinks menu will highlight British wines and sparkling wines as well as a regularly-changing seasonal cocktail.
