The Wigmore is a modern British tavern on Regent Street which opened in summer 2017 and quickly put itself on the map as a new social hub with a touch of London polish. The imaginative drinks list features great wines, cask ales and craft beers, including The Wigmore’s own ‘Saison’ beer, brewed in partnership with Bermondsey’s Brew By Numbers.
The menu refines pub classics and uses seasonal ingredients from the very best suppliers, put together simply, but creatively. Quintessential snacks have been taken to a new level, such as Masala-spiced scotch egg, ‘dahl’ relish and the XXL stovetop three cheese & mustard toastie – brought to the table with a cast iron bacon press which keeps the cheese molten until it reaches the lucky diner. These are served alongside a daily-changing menu of main dishes and a selection of glorious puddings.
The Wigmore is a glamorous transformation of a former banking hall by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, which highlights original Victorian features and uses a palette of rich colours, emphasising the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Two great spaces for private parties, The Green Room and The Snug, complete the exciting offering at The Wigmore.
I would certainly say Pub in the Park is up there with one of best things I have ever done, the atmosphere and buzz over those 3 days was just electric and I felt so lucky to be a part of it all. All in all, we served around 4000 dishes over the 3 days, the most popular being the Mackerel Taco which sold out on each session, I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd though as they were all willing to try the other dishes we had to offer. One of my favourite moments had to be that I got to celebrate my birthday which was on the Sunday In such an incredible way, meeting a huge amount of kind and wonderful people as well as watching The Milk who are one of my favourite bands.
Last year’s Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I can’t wait to bring excellence in food, world class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK this year.
