Housed in the Andaz London Liverpool Street hotel, Lady Abercorn’s Pub & Kitchen is a lively neighbourhood pub serving tasty bar snacks and a three-course menu. The name comes from a famous East London landlady, and the menu reflects her travels around the world. In celebration of her spirit, this vibrant location is ideal for those after a relaxed evening of local brews and tasty pub-style food. The interiors are a pleasing blend of cosy and ornate, boasting high ceilings, elegant furnishings and plenty of natural light.
To drink, you’ll find a good selection of global lagers and more local craft beers and ales. There are plenty of old and new world wines to try, by the glass or bottle, as well as a short list of cocktails of spritzes. Those just stopping by for a drink can snack on tasty nibbles like homemade spicy nuts, marinated pitted Spanish olives and crispy vegetable spring rolls.
Those staying for a full meal, meanwhile, can enjoy a selection of international dishes and pub classics. Start off with the calamari with chilli gremolata and saffron aioli, or opt for the Spanish ham and potato croquettes served with chilli jam and chipotle mayo. Pub food purists can then move on to a hearty main like fish and chips with minted peas, or bangers and mash with sage and onion gravy, crispy onions and mustard. For something spicier, try the Punjabi mutton curry or Korean BBQ ribs with kimchi.
Any vegans joining will be pleased with the options, offering a choice between a charred aubergine with tahini, pomegranate, mint and za'atar or a selection of vegan tempura with sauce. If burgers are more your thing, then Lady Abercorn’s has vegan, buttermilk chicken or Angus beef options. Lastly, finish with a sumptuous dessert like vanilla cheesecake of millefeuille for a stunning end to the meal.
