Next month, Shepherd’s Bush Yard will once again be transformed, but this time from a Mediterranean summer garden into a Scandinavian forest, complete with fir trees, ivy covered pergolas, bark on the floors and woods brought in especially from Norway, and six sheds serving the best seasonal street food and warming winter drinks in family-friendly surroundings.
The yard is fully covered and heated, low-lit with festive maroon and blue colours bringing a touch of Scandinavia to Shepherds bush. With enough banquette seating for 140 people and plenty more room to mill (and ‘mull’) around, Little Feast Winter offers an alternative dinner option for the festive period with some of the best new street food purveyors in the capital taking up residence in its wooden huts.
The Yard will serve up treats from Sticky Beaks slow roasted pork and lamb and flat breads with Moroccan shredded beef cheeks. Feed me Primal will go paleo on us, and Tomattos will delight with seed-to-plate wood fired pizzas.
On Saturday and Sundays, when the market is open in the day as well as at night, The Deli Shed will be selling freshly baked breads, cheeses, smoked fish and meats for Christmas.
To wash it all down with, head to The cabin Bar (formerly an old fish shop), which has been transformed into a Norwegian-style fishing cabin on the water. Here you can buy everything from mulled ciders and wine, to cocktails, craft lager and ales and even a magnum of red wine for £45.
And that’s not all. This festive enchanted forest will be selling Danish Christmas Trees from November 13th, and will have acoustic live music on Saturday and Sunday daytimes with choral choirs, carol singing, brass and jazz bands. From November 23rd, each day will see another door opened on the Giant Advent Calendar, an 8ft high specially made creation with food and drink offers located behind each door. Strictly for grown-ups, there will also be a ‘dirty Santa’s Grotto’, for those that have been naughty, rather than nice.
