Sticky Toffee Pudding

I'll be in London for a whirlwind weekend and would like to find a place that makes a good sticky toffee pudding. Any suggestions?

  1. I was at St John Bread and Wine in Spitalfields at the weekend and all there desserts are amazing (and very british) - it was a special but we had apple pie, trifle & rhubarb eton mess instead to share- the table next to us had it and said was outstanding...but then so were ours....highly recommended and a really cool place to visit after going to spitalfields & brick lane markets on a sunday...quintessential London

    1. I agree about St John but prefer the original Smithfields branch. Canteen in Spitalfields also do yummy sticky toffee pudding. The Cartmel one from a supermarket is amazing if you have a kitchen where you can heat up your own!

        Sticky toffee pudding is generally credited with being "invented" at the Sharrow Bay Hotel in Cumbria. The Cartmel product, made just a few miles away, is as authentic as you're likely to find retail. As well as selling their famous pudding, the Village Shop sells a wide range of good food - much of it local (which I know is probably no help to the OP - but I can never resist a plug for north west foods).
