Wringer and Mangle
Restaurant in London Fields
Wringer and Mangle is a beautiful restaurant in London Fields with a shabby chic decor in a converted warehouse. The space is expansive with the restaurant area at the front and a huge bar area at the back with a lovely outside terrace. We loved the potted plant, climbing vines and laundry themed decor in the restaurant, which made it look pretty funky!
Our meal started with the Aubergine and Mozzarella Croquettes with tomato and basil sauce (£5). We were delighted to receive three huge croquettes packed with a filling which were such a bargain for the price. We were similarly impressed with the Charcuterie Plate (£8) with three different meats and cheese, warm slightly toasted bread, delicious butter and olives! I felt rather spoilt with this delicious selection and everything tasted so fresh.
We opted for the Pea Risotto with lemon thyme, parmesan and crispy asparagus for mains, which was another generous portion. The risotto was creamy (but not sickly) and the addition of the asparagus gave it an excellent texture. The 8oz Grilled Sirloin Steak (£22.50) was served with grilled asparagus, chips and truffle hollandaise . The steak was cut into slices, perfectly cooked and the hollandaise sauce was amazing. Similarly to the risotto, we loved the addition of the asparagus which you do not normally get with steak dishes.
It was a Saturday evening so it was clearly cocktail time and, priced at £10, we had few! We had the Hoxton Fizz: Hoxton Pink Gin, fresh English raspberries, soda water and prosecco which was served Spirtz style. The Passion Spice: Bacardi Anejo Cuatro, raspberry puree, lemon juice, oregat, saffron and passion fruit foam was amazing! It was served bright pink and was so refreshing without being too sweet.
Second round (which we had for dessert) included the Orient Express: Bombay Sapphire Gin, lemon & lime sherbet, mandarine juice, cardamome syrup, blueberries and vanilla syrup. Similarly to the Passion Spice it was brightly coloured and looked pretty damn awesome. The Santiago Swizzle: Bacardi Anejo Cuatro, lime juice, caster sugar, passion fruit, pineapple, mint and ginger beer was their take on a mojito. This cocktail went down very well!
Wringer and Mangle is a beautiful restaurant serving great food and cocktails and has an amazing terrace area. It has a laid back atmosphere but still offers something different. We would love to return for the bottomless brunch between 11-4 on a Saturday which is £15pp unlimited bubbles with any brunch dish! The Sunday Roasts look pretty epic too. If you are looking for a great restaurant in London Fields, this is it!
