About us…

Save the Date London is a not for profit based in Hackney offering pay as your feel surplus food to everyone. Run by chefs James and Ruth Smart we work with a team of volunteers to provide a restaurant experience available to everyone in the community.

Founded in 2014 we started out in a self built cafĂ© in Dalston and have operated in a variety of locations in the east London area including the Nomadic Community Gardens in Shoreditch, Honeymoon on Hackney Road and St John’s Church in Hoxton.

As of June 2019 we will be opening on Thursday nights in our permanent home on the Moo Canoes Milk Float in Hackney Wick. As an un-funded organisation we have struggled to stay open over the five years we have been around and have found a new solution to this issue in our sister company Smoke on the Water. Open Friday to Sunday our boat based smoke shack will offer a variety of smoked and preserved tasty treats showcasing the best in local, sustainable produce.
