Remember that place you stumbled upon in Lyon several years ago? You know, the one that still makes you a little misty eyed whenever you think about how quaint the table cloths were? And the memory of their cheese list still visits you in your dreams? Well, despite being on a main road in Farringdon, La Petite Ferme has exactly that feel. Yes, the plants are fake, your table might excessively wobble, and the paintings of random vegetables will probably offend your more modernist friends, but it’s all part of the charm. Come here with a few of your favourite people, eat a sh*t tonne of cheese, and witness your mates say ‘isn’t this lovely’ every five minutes as they get progressively hammered on bordeaux, with camembert on their chins.
