To follow on from my previous post on Soho Farmhouse about the accommodation there, I thought the food deserved a post in its own right.
To eat there you either need to be staying, a member of Soho House or a guest of a member. We were staying, so managed to use all the facilities and experience the fun room service.
The Main Barn offers a few dining options – a fine dining area (Fancy Farm), bar and more informal eating (Comfy Farm), so there is quite a variety of options and menus to choose from. It’s great to be able to visit the kitchen garden to see what’s likely to be on the menu.
There is also the Farmshop & Deli if you want more of a snack. I didn’t eat there but it looked amazing. Perhaps a bit tricky for gluten-free options though!
The Japanese restaurant on site – Pen Yen, is amazing. I loved the Miami-style decor and the flavours were so fresh and zingy. Do check when you book whether it will be open though. We were there on a beautiful day and sat overlooking the lake.
Such a great place to have a cocktail or three!
As we were staying, we wanted to make the most of our beautiful cabin and so took advantage of the wonderful room service which I can say with quite confidence, is like no other.
First came the cocktail cart which arrived at our cabin door fully stocked and driven by a mixologist who made a couple of beautifully spicy Soho Mules for us to drink. Second to arrive was our lovely light supper of beetroot salad delivered by Tuk Tuk!
I’ve always loved room service but this just took ordering to another level of fun, so in the morning we couldn’t resist ordering the breakfast cart!
It was so great to chat with the chef whilst he prepared our breakfast in front of us. I can’t think of a better way to start the day! The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were sublime. I seriously need to find out where they get their salmon from, it was so delicate and not overly smoked.
If you get the chance to go to Soho Farmhouse I would definitely make Pen Yen a must but do make time to enjoy the room service as well and if you’ve eaten in the fine dining section and deli, I would love to hear about it.
