The second London drinking haunt with this moniker has arrived on the edges of Covent Garden. As with the first Mr Fogg's in Mayfair, the owners have really gone to town with setting the scene, this time with a Jules Vernes theme. There are knick-knacks and souvenirs from around the world, and a real sense of Victorian frippery in the décor. Equipped with a really decent bar where the barmen know what they’re doing and are happy to take customers on a their own mini adventure – the cocktail menu keeps pace with Phileas and his travels and there are plenty of exotic flavours from absinthe to sazerac. Don’t forget to indulge in bar snacks if you want to keep your head above water, however don’t expect to be paying Victorian prices – sadly some things here do move with the times.
One of the best things about London is its collection of hidden gems and that marvelous feeling when you know that you&ve found a real diamond. That&s exactly how I felt as I wandered into Mr Fogg&s Tavern (and back in time!) in Covent Garden for lunch with Colleen this week.The Tavern is a new adventure for Phileas as he inherited the venue after the passing of his beloved Aunt Gertrude Fogg last year. And so it is that Phileas is now the sole owner of 58 St. Martins Lane and Gertrude&s former housekeeper, Fanny McGee is the landlady. You just know you&re in for a good time!
