On Thursday 2nd March, Mathew Carver will be opening The Cheese Bar’s takeaway hatch as a sneak peak before opening the doors to their first permanent restaurant. To mark the occasion  they will be teaming up with local Camden charities for a sandwich amnesty offering Londoners a chance to upgrade their lunch.

From 12pm and for one day only, hungry Londoners can head to the takeaway hatch to upgrade their shop-bought, pre-made sandwich for one of founder Mathew’s signature grilled cheese sandwiches. At the end of the day, the charities will be on hand to collect the donated sandwiches, which their teams of willing volunteers will distribute to soup and street kitchens across the Camden area.

After travelling the length and breadth of the UK serving grilled cheese sandwiches from our trucks ‘Alfie’ and “Audrey”, we’re so excited to be taking up residence in Camden Market,” said Mathew Carver, Founder of The Cheese Bar. “We are proud to be working with the local community and to help out those less fortunate; upgrade your lunch whilst helping others out, what’s not to love…

Following the sandwich amnesty, Mathew will be previewing selected dishes from the Cheese Bar menu at the take away hatch between the 4th March and the 22nd of March, ahead of the grand opening on the 23rd. The menu will feature signature classics from The Cheese Truck days including a festival favourite Cropwell Bishop Stilton and the Bacon & Pear Chutney sandwich alongside new additions including a Berkswell Saganaki and truffled Baron Bigod.

Please note, to claim the sandwich upgrade, on the day all pre-bought sandwiches must have at least 1 day left before their expiry date and must be pre-packaged and sealed.

Urban beaches is officially 'A Thing' for us Londoners. The perfect marriage of escapism and stay-cation- they allow us to feel like we've had a little holiday but still get an Uber home.

So if you're looking for somewhere to curl your toes in the sand this summer look no further - here's your choice of the best!


EAST: Beach East at the Olympic Park

Pretend you're in Rio whilst watching the Olympics on your phone at this sandy oasis complete with obligatory deck chairs, ice cream and also fairground rides.


SOUTH: Brixton Beach Boulevard

A bit more than a location with added sand, the Brixton Beach Boulevard is £4 entry and open all the weekends that August has to offer. The beach is on a rooftop in this instance and has a Miami 80s theme. Also added into the mix are retro film screenings, sports broadcasts and lots of food.beach-image-2

SOUTH EAST: Southbank's beach is back

You get some water with this one, albeit the rather murky water of the Thames but water none the less. A firm favourite with any urban beach hopper this patch of sand sits right along side some great bars and restaurants so you can truly urban up your sandy experience. A Brazilian barbecue in a yellow tram is on hand as well as caiprinha's.


NORTH: Camden Beach!

A firm fave of ours down at The Roundhouse. Last year this was a storming success with live performances on in the evenings and an escape form the mental bustle that is Camden Market. This area get's great sun so it's one to run too on those clear days of the summer (all 4 of them). There's rum, ping pong, private beach huts, BBQ and free entry. Just don't forget your bucket and spade.
