Honey-focused mead bar to open in London

Gosnells, London’s only meadery, is to launch its debut bar upstairs at the Coal Rooms in Peckham next month, serving ‘Original’ and ‘Vintage’ meads with a continually changing menu.

Founded in 2014 by Tom Gosnell, Gosnells will be located in the former ticket office of Peckham Rye station above the Coal Rooms restaurant. The forty-cover space will also offer a private dining room for twelve guests.

Experimental ferments include pink hibiscus, salted, hopped, barrel-aged and gooseberry meads, which will be served singularly or as a flight of four or five. Non-alcoholic options will also be on offer.

A selection of cocktails will also be available designed to explore the flavours of honey and to pair with the dishes on offer.

Gosnells’s light bites will include Peckham Fatboy potatoes, Ogleshild cheese from Somerset, beef fat mayonnaise, crispy onions, Cobble Lane kabano sausage, and bone marrow with marmite bread and butter pudding.

Downstairs, the Coal Rooms’ menu features dry aged duck breasts, roasted cod heads and 30 day-aged Dexter sirloin and rib.

The bar will also offer a variety of honey and bee-based activities including a mead masterclass exploring a selection of meads from around the world, while tours of the meadery will take place on Saturdays.

Gosnells will open on 8 March.
