Mr Buckley's

Square Meal Review of Mr Buckley's ?

The eponymous Mr Buckley was an angry local who once set light to this building when it was a Victorian workingmen’s club, but modern wage slaves will find no reason to torch this diner-cum-cocktail joint, which is tailor-made for East End tastes. Breakfast morphs into brunch (served until 4pm) as famished crowds feed on duck egg and soldiers, pimped-up pancakes, muesli and porridge, crab cake Benedict and ‘skillets’ of eggs, potato, spinach, feta, tomatoes and pancetta. Later on, the culinary attractions could include tapas-sized lobster mac ’n’ cheese, nut-crusted lamb cutlets, roast poussin or wild mushroom on blue cheese polenta, followed by pistachio cheesecake, perhaps. There’s also a selection of inexpensive wines, cocktails and savoury nightcaps to explore – try bacon-infused, bourbon-based bloody Madison or gooseberry gin fizz until 2am in this moody, woody brick-walled duplex.

    Gingle lists everything :: Mr Buckley

    The place has a clean, stripped back look – bare yellow brick walls, wooden benches and tables. It appealed to us as soon as we came in and we made murmurings of approval to each other. Our lovely waitress (everyone was lovely in fact) came over and ‘explained’ the menu to us. They have, (like so many places these days) a sharing ethos but one that seems to work more functionally than just telling people to have three small plates each and divvy them up. Here you have jars, small plates, mains and sides so you could do a traditional starter, main, dessert combo if you wanted...

    Lady Rhubarb :: Brunch with Mr Buckley

    A little too hip for his Hackney Road neighbours, Mr Buckley’s is a welcome revere from the chicken shops and offies which line this busy street. And just a short stroll from Columbia Rd a perfect brunch, sheltering you from the throng. Dishing up an all day brunch menu, he really does know how to impress a girl. And the calibre is a lot higher than your typical London lad...
