When we arrive for the launch of Wringer & Mangle, set in a refurbished old laundry building opposite London Fields Brewery, there seem to be no dirty knickers around. Rather, everyone looks effortlessly chic and unflustered, and really clean. There is an impressively large brushed up bar/restaurant area, complete with art-deco inspired interior, a heated courtyard with a great fire pit in the middle and lots and lots of space to schmooze. It’s a nice spot this. Simple but tasty cocktails, devised by mixologist Gerry Calabrese (of the Hoxton Pony) – dominated by Collins and other gin-heavy drinks – suits us. Head chef is Oisin Coyle (formerly of Terroirs) and the best thing he cooked up this evening was a perfectly balanced and warming autumn vegetable stew, but all the dishes impressed. Come for dinner, weekend brunch, afternoon tea, or build your own Sunday roast – a nice allrounder of a place.
