Tucked down Clapham Manor Street, just moments from the bustling high street and Clapham Common, neighbourhood bistro The Manor will serve brunch from 11am to 3pm on both Saturday and Sunday, with reservations being accepted from today.
Head Chef Dean Parker has created a menu which will feature a selection of modern British dishes from local, seasonal produce; something which the restaurant has become known for since its launch in late 2014. Small plates will include Venison, juniper & black pepper salumi (£6), Hereford beef tartare, bone marrow, wild garlic & black radish (£6) and Fermented potato flat bread, smoked aubergine & mint (£5.50).
Larger plates will offer The Manor’s creative twist on classic brunch dishes, with options such as Rye oat & chia seed Bircher muesli, greengages & Ivy House yoghurt (£6.50), Poached Tilley’s farm eggs, smoked potatoes & sorrel (£8) and Fried duck egg, crispy pig cheeks, nduja, borlotti beans & San Marzano tomatoes (£9). There will also be a select choice of sides including the Wilted spinach & sea vegetables (£4) and Smashed Avocado, toasted seeds & garden herbs (£4.50).
Drinks will include fresh juices, teas, coffee and a new selection of brunch cocktails. Bloody Marys and Bloody Marias, made with 1800 tequila, will be a standout feature, with a bar full of spices, herbs and accompaniments to create your own bespoke tipple. If you’re feeling less adventurous, leave it to The Manor’s bar team to concoct one for you.
The Manor is the second of four restaurants led by Chef Robin Gill and his wife Sarah, who first opened The Dairy in Clapham Old Town to high acclaim in 2013. The Manor adopts a slightly more grown-up feel, whilst keeping things casual thanks to its graffiti interiors, rustic reclaimed school desks and industrial light fittings making it the ideal setting for a relaxing weekend brunch or casual weeknight supper with friends. The two Clapham based restaurants were followed by Paradise Garage in Bethnal Green, and most recently by Counter Culture – a 15 seater bar located next door to The Dairy.
Brunch at The Manor launches on Saturday 13th August and will run every Saturday and Sunday between 11am-3pm. The Dairy also serves brunch every weekend from 10am to 12:45pm on a walk-in basis only, whilst Paradise Garage serves brunch from 10:30am-1pm every Saturday and Sunday, with reservations taken.
