Merchants Tavern | Shoreditch Restaurant
And now, a short list of rhetorical questions:
Is water wet?
Is The Pope Catholic?
Do you want to try the new brunch menu at Merchants Tavern?
We know. We get it. Because aside from the fact that it’s in Merchants Tavern to begin with – with its beautiful mid-century brick & leather design, huge open kitchen, and log fire all flooded by light from the skylights – it’s all coming to us from the culinary superteam of Angela Hartnett & head chef Neil Borthwick.
They’ve loaded their new mid-morning weekend menu with goods like ‘dirty’ bacon sandwich; ricotta pancakes crowned with berry compote; or waffles & crisp, perfectly seasoned fried chicken.
To wash all that down, there are the obligatory brunch cocktails including their Bloody Mary, and the Corpse Reviver #2 (packing gin, Lillet Blanc, and absinthe). The counterbalancing coffees all come from Ozone, and there are specialist teas and freshly squeezed juices to round it all out – which sounds pretty good, right?
But we all know that answer to that.
