A fine hare pie at the Blueprint Cafe


I went to the Blueprint Cafe in London’s Design Museum last month with work to see off a colleague who had been visiting from the US. The restaurant offers spectacular views of the London skyline from Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the Swiss Re building in the West, sweeping across and along the Thames to Canary Wharf in the East. As you would expect of a restaurant in a museum devoted to design, the look and feel is important and the dining area is light with the entire glass wall looking over the river. It’s simple, unfussy and the home of a great European pie from chef Jeremy Lee.

I dived into the hare pie following a tasty starter of sardines and a fried egg on toast and wasn’t disappointed. A tasty, generous and chunky pie with beautifully cooked meat in a rich dark gravy. It went very well with a side of greens.

Ambience 7/10

Value 6.5/10

Pie 8.5/10

Ales N/A but a very good wine list
