Win Dinner for Six at Wringer & Mangle in London

Wringer & Mangle

Giveaways | 28th July 2016 | By

Wringer & Mangle is a neighbourhood hangout bar and restaurant in London Fields, Hackney. It offers home cooked British food using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced produce. Cocktails are a speciality as is their Bottomless Brunch. They are offering one Tin and Thyme reader a two course meal for six people with Cava thrown in for good measure.

Whilst Wringer & Mangle is not a vegetarian restaurant, they do offer some interesting choices. The inevitable goat’s cheese tart or veggie lasagne is not to be seen. Instead you might get offered a choice of kale, butternut squash, lentils & tomato or courgette, aubergine, tomato, white beans & green sauce. Menus change weekly and there are daily specials, so regular diners should not get bored. The starters and desserts all look interesting too; deep fried aubergine, ricotta & chilli would probably be my choice to start and cream pot with a pistachio biscuit to finish.

Wringer & Mangle

Afternoon tea and sunday roast are also on offer. A nut roast served with all the trimmings is one of the options – hooray for that. When it comes to brunch, the spicy sweetpotato and sweetcorn hash with poached egg has my name written all over it. The all day bar specialises in “Collins” inspired cocktails, where to start? I’m itching to try The Walnut: butterwashed Jack Daniel’s infused with roasted walnuts, Champagne syrup, chocolate bitters, sugar and topped with homemade chilli foam; and why stop at one? There are plenty of others to lighten your mood and intrigue your palate.  

Wringer & Mangle

The decor is reclaimed wood, creeping Russian ivy plants, flickering lights and Victorian lamps which creates “a charming restaurant setting that guests will want to linger in day and night”. There is also an attractive courtyard area for those that like to eat al fresco.
