Emily Wilding Davison, who was affectionately nicknamed ‘Pem’ by her close family, was a prominent suffragette, well known for the incredible impact she made toward equal rights for women in the UK. What does a suffragette have to do with our restaurant? Dedication. Commitment. Passion. Care. All of these things Emily Davison embodied, and all of these things we take incredibly seriously when it comes to food. Every element of every dish we prepare has been carefully considered and selected before it reaches your plate.
