REVIEW: Fayre Share, Victoria Park

WHAT? Let’s start off by saying that until recently, Fayre Share’s Instagram account hasn’t done it justice. It was after spotting the restaurant in an article conducted by our friend and Vice Munchies writer Ruby Lott-Lavigna that we stopped by the new Victoria Park Road hangout, its concept centered around sharing.

A light, airy space, the restaurant opens out onto a courtyard with a retractable roof and fireplace, a space that immediately inspires thoughts of special birthday parties and private events. A trendy grey and green colour scheme peps up wooden tables in neutral tones, industrial light fixtures reminding you that yes, this is still East London.

Super-friendly staff are more than happy to take you through the menu, which encourages you to order a variety of plates to divide between your party. Every dish on the menu is offered in three sizes (enough for one, two or four people) and served up family-style, platters placed in the middle of the table.

For starters, you can choose from the likes of crispy duck balls, roasted cauliflower and squid with garlic mayo, moving on to hearty main dishes. Think warming English fare, served up in thoroughly modern surrounds: grilled pork cutlet with creamy cabbage, pan-fried sea bream, mac ‘n’ cheese and roasted summer vegetables with bulgur wheat. A selection of pies will suit hungry families visiting from afar, or locals desperate for a hangover cure (go for the cheesy mustard mash to finish).

Sundays call for a short but excellent roast menu, towering Yorkshire puddings balanced on thin cuts of velvety meat and rich gravy. It’s tough to resist dessert, with options like white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, chocolate mousse with honeycomb and even a take on an Arctic roll, dressed up with jelly.

A stellar find, we’d recommend Fayre Share to couples for a relaxed date, or locals in search of an impressive new place to take visitors. Asides from the fayre, fair prices make this a must-visit (mains are under £15, some hovering around £10) so even as the nights draw in, you won’t regret a walk to this delightful new venture.
