After a long-winded legal battle with Chris Martin over the naming rights of his unborn child, Little Duck The Picklery was granted permission to keep its name and opened last year. It is, in essence, a giant middle class kitchen. Everything is served in, on, or around terracotta. The menu is on two blackboards, reading like a weekly shop in the Ottolenghi household. There are 36 ceramic jugs of all sizes hanging above the hob. It’s very much from the P. Franco (liberal, private) school of thought. The small plates are decent: some good things, some okay things and some extremely pickle-y things that will make you go a bit wide eyed. It’s an all day place so come for breakfast, lunch, dinner or, naturally, a pickling workshop.
