The Wigmore, a new modern British Tavern will open to the public on Thursday 20th July, located on Regent Street, set to become a new social institution with a touch of London polish and a place where everyone is welcome.
This deluxe re-imagining of the Great British pub will serve a carefully created drinks list from the team behind Artesian, including great wines, cask ales and craft beers including The Wigmore’s very own house "Saison", brewed in partnership with Bermondsey’s "Brew by Numbers". A variety of mixed drinks that celebrate Britain’s drinking history include cups of punch, house "hoptails" and classic cocktails that have all been created in London.
The food menu overseen by Michel Roux Jr defines quintessential British pub fare, using seasonal ingredients from producers that are leaders in their field which are simply prepared and sympathetically cooked with a keen attention to detail. Classic pub snacks have been elevated to a new level such as: Masala spiced scotch egg, dahl relish and the Stovetop cheese toastie presented to the table with a cast iron bacon press to ensure cheese remains molten until it reaches the lucky recipient.
A daily changing menu of more substantial dishes include: Balvenie-whisky smoked salmon, honey pickled onions, Wooster’s bakery sprouted rye using smoked salmon created exclusively for the Roux family that is sprayed with 12-year Balvenie whisky; Ox-cheek & ale pie, suet crust featuring a specially created laminated suet crust pastry and Paprika glazed shortrib, bone marrow & thyme crumb.
The former banking hall has been transformed by internationally acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, capturing and enhancing the original features of the space. The Main Bar will harness the history of the building by retaining the listed panelling and incorporating furniture in mohair velvets with silk cushioned detailing. A timber bar with fabric panelling and turned wooden chair legs will allude to the high quality craftsmanship involved.
Two separate, semi-private areas have been incorporated into the space with a more relaxed ambience, guests will be able to enjoy the intimacy of the traditional "Snug", complete with mohair sofas, silk cushions and loose rugs and will be available for private bookings, ideal for groups and special occasions.
