The 28-cover Hour Glass pub will aim to be a ‘proper pub’ serving draft beer alongside cloudy scrumpy, IPA’s, three guest ales and bottled beers to showcase London’s beer heritage, with some coming from local sources.
Tim Parsons, who has experience working with Michelin-starred chefs such as Bruno Loubet in The Ebury, has been appointed head chef.
His seasonal menu will include Sea Bream with Cauliflower, Burnt Leeks and Brown Shrimp, Flat Iron Steak with Dripping Chips and Bone Marrow Gravy, and Chocolate Porter Cake with milk Ice Cream and Honeycomb.
The pub’s design includes original features that have been uncovered with wood-panelled walls sourced from local churches. Also incorporated into the design will be a giant hour glass sculpture.
