The summer holidays are over, the kids are back at school and we’ve caught ourselves feeling oddly nostalgic. Remember that first day back at school after the 6 week break? There was always that little (actually rather big) part of you that was really excited to get back into the routine of seeing your friends every day and retaining absolutely no information.
If, like us, you’d like to join in with the ‘back to school’ spirit, we suggest heading to The Schoolhouse in Wandsworth for the ultimate throwback. They’ve got everything from the blackboards to the coat hooks. They haven’t quite managed to replicate the sloppy school dinners though, but somehow we don’t think that was their intention. The food at The Schoolhouse is actually really rather good.
They also understand that you might have grown up a bit since the school days and can actually drink legally in a proper establishment, rather than sneakily (or not so sneakily) downing warm cider in a field. Oh, those were the days…
