Three years ago, we opened a restaurant. Entirely by accident, as it happens... it was only supposed to be a commercial kitchen with a few tables thrown in for good measure, but you know how these things are. People tracked us down to the arse-end  of nowhere, and told their friends. More people came. We grew. We won a few things, and have been listed three years on the trot in the Observer Food Monthly Awards, which is pretty nice.  We have fabulous customers, the most talented suppliers, and life at tin kitchen is good.

Sadly, life at tin kitchen is also a (predominantly) sober one, and tends to finish promptly at 4pm. And so, meet lata lata.

Lata lata is the younger, cooler, boozier sister to tin kitchen. There's much of the same to be had- seasonal, whimsical menus sourced locally and made with love (more on that in a minute...), happy staff, and a laid back atmosphere. But lata lata comes with a strong line in well made cocktails, more room, more food, and later nights.

'But what, pray tell, sets you apart from every other bugger out there who thinks they can open a restaurant?' Good question. First and foremost, we've done it. High five us.

Secondly, we're different. Anyone who has visited us at the tin kitchen should have been battered over the head with our ethos already- locally sourced, sustainable, and nice to eat. Lata lata takes this even further, as Buckinghamshire conveniently finds itself surrounded by an abundance of talented brewers, distillers, & grape-growers. We've also landed ourselves one or two other brilliant little local suppliers along the way that mean lata lata can truly be a locally-sourced restaurant in every respect possible. Which is, we're sure you'll agree, f*%king fantastic.

This is a photo of some local produce so you know that we use local produce.

So there you go. Watch the video (which was immensely fun, if a little cringeworthy to film...). Then, help us out by buying some stuff before we open our doors, which we'll give you once we're trading. Simple.

Love,

Aimee & Ross

Risks and challenges

We're supposed to talk a bit about 'the risks and challenges that come with completing our project' here, but we talk about them in the video.* We don't want to batter people over the head with the obvious; the risks are we'll be so successful that the rest of our lives will be spent fruitlessly searching for the same sense of validation. The challenge will be not killing each other in the process.

*Seriously. Watch the video.

    The only way Ross would allow this on here was with an accompanying price-tag. Yes, it's ridiculous. You also get loads of other 'free' stuff. It's yours- you can design it, name it, choose your glassware- the lot. Don't be a dick, though.
