On Saturday Ben & I headed over to Brockley Market for a delicious shredded Suffolk chicken with sticky gooseberry wrap from Mike & Ollie. We were then accompanied by the fabulous Gisela Torres, cycling in convey down the road to cool off at Mr Lawrence's.

Mr Lawrence's has been going for over 20 years and until recently also had the wine merchant shop next door. You can sometimes find them at Forest Hill Food Fair selling French wines and London Craft beers, alternatively you can order online here.

They do have a small, but perfectly formed food menu if you fancied a nibble. We opted for a bowl of olives. Proper decent olives they were at that! 

We spent the rest of the afternoon listening, sharing stories & catching up over a few chilled glasses of champagne. I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday.
