After success in London Fields, Wringer and Mangle have opened a new branch in Spitalfields on Middlesex Street. With a head chef, who was most recently at the Lanesborough, his idea is to serve seasonal fresh produce with a simple but hearty menu.
The venue is light and spacious offering a great setting for drinks at the bar or dining throughout the day. The service was great from the minute we arrived and they were happy to offer suggestions for drinks and food.
We started off with some happy hour cocktails which were 241 between 5 and 7pm. We went for a Locals Only – Vodka, Aperol, Montengro, Cinzano 1757 Sweet Vermouth and Segra Viudas Brut Reserva – basically a much stronger Aperol Spritz!!
To begin we had the Seared scallops & black pudding, bacon jam,cider and vinegar dressing – this combination really worked and the bacon jam was absolutely amazing. We also had the crispy pig’s head croquettes, tartare sauce apple and radishes which were tasty and filling but I couldn’t help but want the bacon jam with them!
On to the mains we had the roasted lamb neck, seasonal greens, yoghurt and zhoug which was beautifully presented – the lamb was cooked perfectly and delicious. We also went for one of the specials – sirloin steak, chips and bernaise sauce (which was a preview to their Wednesday steak nights!)
For the quality, Wringer and Mangle is reasonably priced and I would like to return for their bottomless brunch on Saturdays 12-6 where you pay just £15pp for bottomless prosecco with any dish from the brunch menu!!
