Wild Game Co to open new pop-up in central London

Scottish-style street food group the Wild Game Co is to launch its first standalone pop-up restaurant on London's Charlotte Street.

Set to open on Monday 3 November, the site will seat 40 people, and is expected to be open for at least six months.

The site's menu will focus on wild venison and game from the Scottish Highlands, in a variety of salads and burgers, such as the Veni-Moo Burger, which includes one venison and one beef patty plus melted cheese, beef bacon and the group's signature sauce; a take on classic stovies; a slow-cooked venison stew; and a salad featuring roasted squash, broccoli and venison.

The restaurant décor will reflect the group's Scottish heritage, and include hardwood floors, stag heads mounted on the walls, and butcher's hooks hanging from the ceiling.

There will also be an event space available for booking on weekends, which will accommodate up to 40 people at a time.

Founded by Andy Waugh, who is now working with bar entrepreneur Calum MacKinnon, the group is aiming to promote and cook British game in a fun and youthful way, having been named winner of the Street Food of the Year accolade at the 2012 Young British Foodies Awards. Waugh originally comes from Inverness, where his family has operated a game-butchering business for 30 years.

Commenting on the project, Waugh said: "We're delighted to be bringing the north of Scotland to central London. Our produce is not just wild or from ‘somewhere' up north; we can tell you exactly who shot it and where from in the Highlands. We look forward to sharing it soon."
