the Larder - fine food deli in London

Time Out Love London Awards winner 2014

Welcome to the Larder

Our three venues represent a collection rather than a chain, each different but with a common theme of highest quality ingredients and commitment to uncomplicated but appealing preparation and presentation.

In the heart of Wanstead’s Village High Street is the Larder, now in its eighth year, serving delicatessen products from across Europe, fine coffee and delicious light lunches.  Also licensed to sell beer and wine you can visit to browse our range, or join us at one of our ticket-only wine tasting evenings - please contact us for upcoming dates.

In Bethnal Green’s Globe Town is our vegetarian kitchen, serving novel and appetising creations prepared daily by our dedicated team, though coffee and pastries are just as popular.  Newly refurbished, and now open 7.30am to 8pm weekdays! Now open 9am Sundays.


On Chingford Plain in the natural surroundings of Epping Forest you will find Butlers Retreat, our beautifully restored Essex Barn serving a mixture of hearty dishes and healthy salads alongside the wonderful coffee and cakes.

Spring Opening:

At Butlers Retreat we are now open daily at 9am and close at 5pm weekdays and 6pm at weekends, every day throughout spring until 10th May when we open 9-6 daily.  Also 9-6 Good Friday and Easter Monday.

Bookings: we do not take regular bookings at any of our sites, though large groups and functions can be catered so please use our contact page to find out more.
