Bacon Scone Pop Up

Greg Marchand and the Frenchie team will be launching a bacon scone pop-up in Covent Garden this summer. Opening to the public on Tuesday 11th June, the pop-up will be situated in Covent Garden Market’s lower level arches, a short distance from Frenchie on Henrietta Street.

The pop-up will serve Frenchie’s classic smoked bacon and maple syrup scones with clotted cream (£3.50), as well as a new goat’s cheese scone (£4). For a sweet treat, Greg has created a banoffee scone (£2.50) for dessert, a take on his signature dessert served at Frenchie Covent Garden.

At the end of the pop-up in early October, the player with the highest score will win a complimentary tasting experience for two at Frenchie Covent Garden.

The pop up will run from June – October 2019, and the following offers will also be available: 1 of each scone (3 scones) for £9.00, 6 scones for the price 5, 12 scones for the price of 10.
