A top London venue is offering a ‘Titchfield Burger’ on its menu.
The restaurant is on the corner of Great Titchfield Street and Riding House Street in the very fashionable district of Fitzrovia.
Their website explains that the Riding House is ‘a modern cafe serving neighbourly hospitality, independent and cherished by the creative community it lives in, plus, one hell of a bar.’
The menu describes the Titchfield Burger thus - ‘a beef patty, beef & pork black pudding, smoked cheddar, tomato relish, onion marmalade, mayo, chips’ and will set you back just £20. (Not bad for London)
Great Titchfield Street was developed by the Dukes of Portland, who owned most of the eastern half of Marylebone in the 18th and 19th centuries.
It was the 2nd Earl of Portland who, in 1716, was created Marquess of Titchfield.
While the Earl of Southampton’s name lives on in London as both Southampton Row and Southampton Street in Holborn are named after him.
