The Bells are Upstairs Jack

I read a review of a pop up place upstairs the iconic Ten Bells pub, and couldn't resist to give them a visit. The pop up was in charge of the Young Turks and The Clove Club, after three successful months one of the Turks Isaac McHale with two of the Cloves Daniel Willis and Johnny Smith, decided to keep the place running. Modern British cuisine, Giorgio Ravelli as head chef, great reviews, iconic location, yes I know everybody is aware of the Ten Bells pub affiliation with Jack the Ripper, what can I say I couldn't miss Upstairs at the Ten Bells

The Bells
I started the diner with buttermilk chicken, it was absolutely fantastic, I love battered chicken, but this one is one of the best I have had, soft and moist, perfectly cooked, the battered crispy, nice seasoning. Then some brisket, beetroot, bone marrow, & blackberries, the 4Bs were nice, some grilled leeks, samphire, and pickle girolles, nice again good warming up. 

Chicken time
Finally the main pork chop, sugar snaps, sweet corn, and peaches, really nice flavour, sweet touch from the peaches, the veggies a bit bland just needed a punch, the pork crackling skin was lovely and played well. 

Pork chop
Finally to end a nice diner, Caravan coffee with Laphroaig truffles. 

French press
If you haven’t been yet don’t miss it, enjoy the food, the art, and just be careful with Jack. 

Art time

Bells remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Airport” 

George: Well, You're not going to believe it 
Kramer: What? 
George: The plane has been re-routed back to Kennedy, we've got 45 minutes Kramer: Let's go, Listen to the bell Grossbard, it tolls for thee
