Sunday roast: Chicken & stuffing

June 27, 2017

 

This Sunday Neil is serving up a roast chicken, lemon & thyme stuffing what a tasty meal for a Sunday afternoon! And for those looking for something lighter, we will have roasted lemon sole on the bone with a refreshing fennel salad.

And of course the bloody mary’s flowing with DJ Paul Day is starting his Sunday session from 3pm to ride us into a chilled out Sunday evening the way a weekend should be finished up.

For a table this weekend email our reception team on booking@merchantstavern.co.uk

MUSIC & WINE NIGHT

June 6, 2017


At Merchants we’ve decided to bring together two of our favourite things – music and wine – in a new monthly event. On the first Wednesday of every month oenophile DJ duo Juicy Fruit – a collab between wino Charlie Prymaka (Les Caves de Pyrene) and music producer and composer, Beni Giles – will be joined by a different winemaker for a night of Music and Wine.

For the first event this Wednesday (7th June) we’re welcoming winemaker Lance Redgewell from Cambridge Road Vineyard in Martinborough, New Zealand and serving his natural, biodynamic wines with tunes from Juicy Fruit. Cambridge Road’s commitment is to making fine, handcrafted wines through meticulous viticulture and traditional wine making techniques.

SPOTlight on: Zoe Anderson

We love our Shoreditch neigbourhood so this month we’re turning the spotlight on to our new neighbour Zoe Anderson.

Zoe is the owner of W.A.Green, the recently opened homeware boutique on our very own Charlotte Road. Zoe has lived near the area for years and decided to launch her venture when she got fed up having to trek into the West End to buy gifts for friends.

W.A.Green is all about bringing a little dopamine for the home into Shoreditch. Here’s Zoe’s London tips:

Tipple of choice
Margarita for day, Negroni for night

Brunch or Lunch
Always lunch, preferably a late, long one. I’m trying hard to invent Linner…

Insiders tip
The cocktail bar above the Exmouth Arms in Exmouth Market is my hidden gem – friends always love it when I take them there. The menu is small but good and the setting is relaxing and very intimate.

Summer or winter
Always summer – there’s nothing quite like a hot summers day – the heat makes London change. The smell of the barbecue’s on the parks and the fact you can’t see a patch of green grass as everyone comes out to play is lovely.

Late night London
I still haven’t been yet but I’m desperate to get to The Glory on Kingsland
