Hungry this Halloween?

wb-new-web-headers

With the streets feeling a little bit colder and the ghouls ready to come out for Halloween, we’ve been noticing our dishes are getting a little bit freaky!

freekahTo start with try our bizarre and boo-tiful burrata, served with delica pumpkin seeds roasted in our fiery hells kitchen – this dish is like a revenge best served cold and will leave you in spine-shaking delight.

And we shouldn’t forget our spicy sriracha wings – flying in from the underworld to tease your taste buds!

Our freeky freekeh salad has been vamped up for this weekend – drizzled in sherry vinegar with radishes, blood curdling broccoli and chilling chickpeas.

Then there’s our ghoulish and gooey sticky toffee pudding – bewitched and drizzled with butterscotch, this dessert will leave your mouth-watering for more of the beastly banana ice cream.

Winter warmers in the courtyard

Blog Header2

Along with our new winter menu, we are super excited about the launch of our Winter Warmers.

It occurred to us that our lovely terrace was the perfect spot to enjoy steaming hot drinks and warming wintery food. So now you can wrap up in one of our snuggly blankets and treat yourself to hot toddies, buttered rum tea and festive mulled wine, together with the likes of delicious spicy chicken soup and maple & chilli glazed wings.

So whether you need a break from shopping, an excuse to get out of the office, or just a little winter pick me up, come and chillax with us in the courtyard.

Halloween 1

Here at W&B we love an excuse to dress up, so come join us on Saturday 31st and get into the Halloween spirit!  There will be pumpkins (we love pumpkins), special cocktail brews, and rewards for any customers who dress to impress. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for more details.

If that’s not enough excitement for you, here are some other devilish good ideas to enjoy Halloween in London.

Boo at the Zoo

London Zoo is all over Halloween! Little ones love a trip to the zoo at any time but for Halloween this year the zoo is putting on a special spider exhibit for kids (and adults!) to learn about how spiders spin their webs and use their venom to hunt their prey. The exhibit opens on the 24th and runs until the 1st.

The exhibit is free with admission, but for an extra £3 kids can carve pumpkins and help ready up some fruit for the bearded pigs to get their teeth into.

Here are more details.

 

 

Whatever you’re doing this Halloween we hope you have a splendid spooky time!

Come on Santa, it’s time to party!

Come on Santa

The summer is now behind us, and the run up to the festive season has begun!  Don’t panic – it’s a while before you need to dust off your baubles but if you want to book your Christmas shindig, now’s the time.

Here are Whyte & Brown, we have the perfect space for gangs of jolly revellers and a super festive menu to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Check out the full details here.  Or pop in and chat to us about all your party needs.

Here comes Father’s Day

 Fathers Day blogThis year Father’s Day falls on Sunday 21st June – that’s less than 2 weeks away, folks!

The very idea of Father’s Day first arose in America where it’s been an official calendar date since 1966, however Father’s Day actually began being celebrated around 100 years ago.

It certainly seems as though Father’s Day was created to balance out the fact that Mother’s Day exists – but who really minds, our dads are awesome too and we can certainly find some fun ways to celebrate their awesomeness.

Luckily for you there’s lots of fantastic things going on in London over Father’s Day that you can treat your old man to. If you fancy a classy evening out there’s some great plays on at the moment including Billy Elliot and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time or if an activity is more your thing have a look at the Alternative London Tour for a bit of street art and culture.

For a more extensive list of ideas we recommend having a nose on Time Out.

Naturally you’ll need a bite to eat – give us a call to book your table: 020 3747 9820 or book online.
