Marksman pub on Hackney Road is to be given a new lease of life by veteran St. John chefs Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram this May. The Marksman will focus on the best of British food so expect to see cooked hams, salt beef and pickled fish as well as mutton curry and house chutney on the menu. There will also be an all day Saturday brunch menu, Sunday roasts and a delicious takeout option of sucking pig and ‘beer mustard’ in soft English milk buns incase you get peckish wandering the world-renowned Columbia Road Flower Market.

The wine list has been carefully curated and will feature a number of affordable options, with a focus on old world wines. A wide selection of beers and ales both bottled and on draught will also be available, as will a small cocktail list reviving drinks of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Oo-err.

Downstairs, there will be a tasting room with an emphasis on feasting with wine served by the magnum available for group bookings and private hire. An upstairs dining room with a more formal menu will launch in summer.
