The first Larder opened in Wanstead High Street in 2007, an antidote to greasy spoons and generic coffee chains, it aimed to offer a relaxed place to meet, eat & drink. Following its warm welcome by the Wanstead locals, two more venues opened, in Bethnal Green and at Butlers Retreat in Chingford, each with individual characteristics and menu options to ensure the Larder as a whole is a collection rather than a chain. Like its predecessors, the fourth venue, within the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, has become a firm favourite with visitors and locals alike and acts as an essential hub for the community. The newer additions to the collection can be found in the leafy Newham surroundings of Central Park and and the Larder is now cafe-in-residence East Ham Library. Most recently the Larder has found a new home within the restored Engine House at Walthamstow Wetlands, an exciting new nature reserve in the heart of London’s Lea Valley.
Each site is committed to using quality ingredients and local suppliers, ensuring you can expect consistency across the collection. We aim to offer a relaxed and friendly environment with the customer experience as our top priority, our friendly and enthusiastic team are essential in this, they are always happy to help and work hard each day to exceed expectations!
