Our Story

Bangers and Balls started with a mission to put seasonal food at the heart of the British Kitchen Table. In 2017 we launched with a Pop up Supper Club at Award Winning Bar Little Nans in Deptford.

Since then we have been creating recipes with the tips and roots of exciting vegetables, foraged food and nose to tail. We are starting a Revolution from your Kitchen Table.

We have great ambitions: to show the world you can be happier when you are in tune with the seasons while creating amazing memories and making the world a better place for future generations.


We have a vision to create a successful brand that gives something back and we want to stay strong to our values while working with you, our diners and revolutionaries. To be the change and write the story together.
