OldroydAfter five years as chef director at Russell Norman's Polpo restaurant group, Tom Oldroyd presents his first solo venture, Oldroyd, a small neighbourhood restaurant on Upper Street in Islington. As a self-taught chef Tom, originally from Guildford in Surrey, has worked in some of London's top restaurants including the renowned Alastair Little's in Soho and a short stint at Bocca di Luppo. Drawing on his 15 years' experience within the restaurant industry, Oldroyd, a 40-cover neighbourhood restaurant split across two floors, offers a daily-changing menu of small European dishes. Examples include confit mustard duck wings and pea and pork jowl croquettes with summer truffle mayo and larger plates including Cornish chorizo, prawn and broad bean paella with cockles and aioli. The menu also features seasonal salads including grilled peach, Dorset coppa and perroche, alongside a selection of meaty sandwiches such as Porchetta roll with stuffing, crackling and pickled fennel. Additional brunch dishes served at the weekend - bacon and egg pappardelle and waffle iron rosti with smoked salmon washed down with a Bloody Mary - offer the perfect hangover cure.
