After the birth of Paddington's 4 in Hand, people were eagerly awaiting another venture by the creators. To much joy, only a suburb over from Paddington's well-loved hotel, chef Colin Fassnidge is turning out hearty and rich fare that is big on flavour at 4 Fourteen.
The space, which was previously owned by pastry chain Le Pain Quotidian, needed some serious revamping before reopening. However, with the design skills of Annie Snell, the space has been reworked with huge windows, bottle-green tiles and an industrial-chic feel. It’s a reflection of what everybody wants a taste of – casual dining with that added warehouse feel.
Also, in a refreshing move against the trend, they do take bookings.
There’s share food aplenty and the Irish breakfast is earning a serious reputation with its main ingredients being duck egg, chorizo and black pudding.
Pork is the star here in this restaurant. Working from nose-to-tail is Fassnidge’s specialty, so go for the Suckling Pig or the Pigs Tail for the true experience.
