Little Social: A French Hideaway from London’s Hustle & Bustle

We stepped in through a dark door, not knowing what we’d see upon entering…and we were greeted with warmth and atmosphere. (Good start).


The lady by the door seemed genuine in her welcoming, and it was a little chilly outside, so we also welcomed the literal warmth of the restaurant!

Although we had arrived a few minutes early for our lunch reservation, we were sat straight away, in a cosy little booth, and offered cocktails to begin our lunch adventure.

I felt like I had left London as soon as we stepped into this place. The space had a pleasantly rustic French feel to it – it was relaxed, not “try hard”…and the staff were attentive, but not overly fussing with us. Very pleasant indeed.


A relaxing and flavourful two-course lunch (I’d highly recommend the “Spaghetti alla Puttanesca” with capers, smoked anchovies, black olives, smoked almonds, basil & aged parmesan) followed our incredible cocktails (one of which was called “Beautiful To Me” and served with a mirror that had “Tu es Belle” scribed on it with lipstick!)

Lunch was accompanied by a lovely bottle of Shiraz (Harvest Moon, which you’ll find on my Wine Design Pinterest Board)…and I even squeezed in a cheeky dram of Rare Cask Macallan whisky to round off the lunch (which is pinned to my Wonderful Whisk(e)y Board)!

Will happily return to Little Social, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Good job, Jason Atherton!
