A fabulous deli with everything from handmade pasta sauce to picnic hampers, operated by London chef Harvey Cabaniss and owned by author Jeanette Winterson. 

They also have organic fruit and veg, salads, soups and quiches, as well as Pierre Marcolini chocolates, confitures, olive oils, fine balsamic vinegars for if you are staying in London longer and want to stock up on some divine delicacies.

But if you want a quick picnic option, take a look at the amazing sandwich combinations – try chorizo, gorgonzola and sweet chilli or ginger pig English ham and dijon mustard (veggie options also available) … or order a picnic hamper for a gourmet feast

Of course, we also love the connection with brilliant author (of both fiction and children’s stories) Jeanette Winterson, and you can read Jeanette’s delightful account of events leading to the establishment of the remarkable Verde’s here.
