Owners, husband and wife team, Olly & Ollie Truelove took over Minkies in early 2018. Boy Olly trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine and has a background in restaurants whilst also being a fitness instructor at Barrys Bootcamp. Girl Ollie runs her own landscape architecture and garden design company and on meeting each other they soon bonded over a love of all things food and creative.
In 2014 they started running Supper Clubs from their flat in Hampstead and this quickly grew into the formation of Walrus & Otter Ltd ' A creative catering company with character'.
Whilst still working their full time jobs as a fitness instructor and designer the duo organically built their catering company specialising in building unique and bespoke menus for events and telling stories through their food. Supper Clubs grew into private dining events, canape parties and weddings.
In 2017 the opportunity of Minkies presented itself and the pair, having known and loved the area for years, decided to focus their energies into rejuvenating the special high street location.
Their vision for Minkies is to create a friendly and relaxed destination with an emphasis on great food.
" We see Minkies as an opportunity to create a stunning green escape in the heart of a bustling and vibrant community. We want to deliver simple, fresh & delicious food within passion and assurance of quality,"
