Native Restaurant To Relocate

The hugely popular Native restaurant is moving to a new home in Southwark

After three hugely successful years at No. 3 Neal’s Yard, the talented team at Native are excited to announce they will be moving across town to a new, larger home.

The Covent Garden restaurant will close its doors to guests after dinner service on Saturday 19th May and re-open on Tuesday 5th June at 32 Southwark Street, SE1 1TU.


The new Native will continue to celebrate all that founders Ivan Tisdall-Downes and Imogen Davis believe in: entirely British produce, zero waste, and a profound respect for the natural environment.

The team champion locally sourced ingredients, supporting small, independent suppliers and micro farms as well as incorporating home-grown and self foraged food onto their menus.

Native initially started as a pop-up in 2015, and has become one of London’s most influential eco-conscious restaurants. This next chapter hopes to be just as successful, with the new restaurant seating 60 guests.

The daily changing menu will see many familiar Native dishes, such as:
• Fallow deer with caramelised cauliflower and carrot top salsa verde
• Fermented truffle potato risotto with tamari and spenwood


Native’s much loved ‘Chef’s Wasting Snacks’ will also be on the menu in the new restaurant – a creative selection of canapés where Ivan makes imaginative use of produce that in many other kitchens would be discarded.

The wine list focuses on a concise selection of European wines boasting a range of natural, organic and biodynamic labels.

There will also be a dedicated bar area with a seasonal cocktail list celebrating the synergy between bar and kitchen. Old favourites such the Sea Buckthorn Negroni, designed by Ivan and Imogen, will join the menu alongside new creations.
