Wringer & Mangle Spitalfields will be the sister bar and restaurant to the original Hackney local hangout, Wringer & Mangle which opened two years ago in London Fields in a disused former laundry. The new project will present hearty seasonal food, a lunchtime deli counter and cocktails to boot, whilst also replicating the successful Bottomless Brunches the London Fields location has become infamous for.
Located directly opposite Liverpool Street Station and in the heart of East London’s most vibrant area, Wringer & Mangle Spitalfields will be set over two floors with the top floor providing all-day dining, whilst downstairs promises to be a destination night spot.
At the heart of the kitchen, we see Food Director to the group, Paul Gayler MBE, and Head Chef, Peter Tomkinson. With expertise and experience in some of London’s best restaurants, the food will centre around quality produce in a home-cooking style with a laid-back dining setting. Paul and Peter have created a well-balanced menu, with the perfect emphasis on both healthy and heartier plates. The daytime offering is served alongside the deli counter and a more substantial dinner menu.
Don’t think the elevation of the food stops there, the kitchen at the original Wringer and Mangle London Fields also hosts a new chef at its helm, Stuart Skues. With the same priorities in mind for the menu, Stuart is using his previous expertise to elevate the quality and the offering at the London Fields site too.
At the centre of both sites, the daily deli counter will be the place to grab a lunch on the go, or to sit in. Enjoy salads, a hot counter, sandwiches, pastries and naughty treats. However, if you’re not a lunchtime local to London Fields or Spitalfields, the restaurants will be the go-to place for bottomless brunch. Brunchers can dig into breakfast-inspired dishes and enjoy an extremely reasonable £15 bottomless prosecco brunch, or the punch of the month! Sundays will also offer an all-day roast with a range of mouth-watering roasted meats with a wide choice of sides to ensure that every appetite is satisfied.
As day transitions into night, the lively pub area will become the perfect pit stop for locals looking for a relaxed and warm setting to enjoy post-work drinks. Drink craft beers or sip on cocktails from an award-winning mixology team and relax from the madness of city life.
As for downstairs at the new Spitalfields site, the group have partnered with London party people Percolate who will be programming every Thursday and Saturday night. Expect a mix of up-and-coming DJ’s and live music. For your Friday night entertainment, the space will be hosted by the same party people that brought ‘Savage’ club nights to the London nightlife scene. The downstairs bar will transform into Gloria’s house, where you continue the party after those Friday night drinks. Expect wild drag queens, wonderful cocktails and like any house party, a little bit of madness.
