Fresh from a very public legal dispute with his former employers at his eponymous chain of restaurants he is now only involved with by name, James Cochran has returned to his roots with his latest venture, 1251.


Opening last month on Islington's foodie haven of Upper Street, this uber modern venue is a celebration of Cochran's identity with a menu that pays tribute to his Scottish and West Indian heritage, while prioritising Kentish produce. 

Named after the celebrity chef's favourite song by The Strokes, this trendy new restaurant occupies the former Chinese Laundry site and features an experimental menu including the Chef's famous Goat Dish as featured in BBC's The Great British Menu. 

And if that doesn't sound enticing enough, they are now launching a mouthwatering Sunday Roast menu where you can choose from a cut of either Ayrshire 50 day aged cote de boeuf, slow braised short rib of beef or 55 day aged middle white pork to accompany a range of classic Sunday Roast treats.

The Sunday Roast menu launches on 30th September and is priced from £25 per person.
