Wow, what a beautiful day it’s been, summer isn’t dead yet! We’ve been busy all day and now there’s a nice crowd lapping up the dipping sun, having London Lagers and starting to think about small plates.
On that note, we’d push you towards our flat breads and homemade dips – the bread is awesome and the dips are super tasty. The chorizo and manchego is a no brainer for early evening snacking as are the chilli and lime prawns and harissa chicken skewers. If you’re looking for something different and a serious taste sensation then you have to take on the truffled egg toast.
Last night, the gammon, egg and chips went down a storm as did the moules and actually both sold out but fear not we’ve got a fresh batch today, so come and get stuck in.
With an eye on the weekend, we’ve added bacon and egg pie to our brunch menu – very Australian and very tasty. We’ve also got Sunday Pie Night, it kicks off at 6pm and it’s gonna be great.
Enjoy small plates as bar snacks or starters or choose a selection of plates as your main – tapas style. Each plate is cooked to order and will be served as it’s ready, don’t wait to get stuck in!
