James Fowler - The Larder House, Southbourne

Best UK bartender, right here on the Grove

Now this is definitely flipping groovy.

James Fowler, from the Larder House right here on Southbourne Grove, is UK bartender of the year 2014. The final was part of a return trip to Hong Kong, lucky him, and he’d only gone and won.

This is going to put the Larder House and the Library firmly on the UK map for the foodie/drinkie population out there.

We better take advantage now before all those London Hipsters add it to their bucket list of places to visit and we don’t get a space.
