The team behind the Anchor & Hope and The Clarence Tavern pubs is moving into Hoxton’s Museum of the Home (formerly the Geffrye Museum) for its next act, opening Molly’s Cafe. Named after Molly Harrison, who was a museum curator and educator in the 40s and 50s, Molly’s Cafe will be split between a cafe and garden canteen for the museum and a bistro and bar open in the evenings, and it’ll actually be on the site of the Marquis of Lansdowne pub (rather than where the old cafe was) which sits within the wider museum complex.
Therefore you can expect an all-day menu, with pastries and other brekkie goods, sandwiches like merguez butties, afternoon tea, and dishes like fritters and rabbit lasagne for dinner. And given the team’s pub background, the drinks will be on point too ranging from coffees and house softies to beers and low-intervention wines. The large garden space will be put to good use with the terrace opening first on 6th May and then the inside areas following on 18th May.
Opens Thurs 6th May 2021
1 Geffrye Street, London, E2 8JH
