Whether you’re planning a cosy night in, a romantic date in town or a Galentine’s splurge on some of the best food in London, Borough Market has all the bases covered this Valentine’s Day.
Couples and friends wanting to venture out to one of London’s most popular date spots, can expect specially curated Valentine’s menus, using the highest quality ingredients, perfect for sharing from Borough Market’s restaurants. Highlights include: An exclusive five-course tasting menu on 14th February at Stoney St by 26 Grains*; A tasting menu for two (including a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne) at Roast; Exclusive cocktails and a Valentine’s Afternoon Tea (available 10th – 14th February) at Rabot 1745.
For those looking for a culinary experience that goes beyond the plate, food expert Celia Brooks will be hosting a Valentine’s edition of her ever-popular Gastro tour of the iconic London Market. A romantic treat for two, this limited edition pre-Valentine’s Day extravaganza starts with a short meet-and-greet, before launching into a non-stop tasting tour around the Market. Enjoy boozy tipples and an array of treats including exceptional charcuterie, many fine cheeses from Britain and beyond, fresh oysters and scallops, fine chocolates and much more.
The tour is available on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th of February (£275 per-couple). Book online:
Perusing the Market is a pastime enjoyed by many, and those doing so as part of their Valentine’s date can expect to find heart shaped cheese Coeur De Neufchâtel (the oldest cheese of Normandie, from Une Normande à Londres); heart shaped biscuits from Cinnamon Tree bakery and a Valentine’s edition hot crumble from Humble Crumble (Borough Market Kitchen). Pick up a steak from Northfield Farm to take home or head to Richard Hayward for Oysters. Round off your shopping trip with wines from around the world at Cartwright’s and a chocolate & raspberry donut from Bread Ahead and you’re all set! Borough Market Kicthen’s traders are open daily until 5pm.
