Take a break from shopping in Westfield and settle down to some hearty British dishes at Bumpkin in Stratford.
Bumpkin has four locations across London which should in theory make it a chain, however, it has still retained some individual love. There is no shortage of places to eat in Westfield Stratford, but this is one of the external offerings with bags of natural daylight. It’s spacious, warehouse style of interior is welcoming.
Dishes are reasonably priced with a varied range of fish and meat options. Starters include an interesting take on our ole fave the “prawn cocktail”, with a crayfish cocktail served with virgin mary dressing. Mains are easily recognisable with steak, half chicken, salmon wellington and there is an imaginative vegetarian option of pearl barley risotto with foraged mushrooms and chevril roots.
We had portobello mushroom with brie and fresh sage as a starter. Mains were the aberdeen angus burger with chips and chargrilled chicken caesar salad with an anchovy dressing. The food was tasty and not over-powering (particularly the anchovy dressing). Simple, served and enjoyed. Will pop in again for sure on my next shop til you drop session. By Sammijo.
