Please check opening times with the pub before making a special journey.
The Merchant of Bishopsgate is located in the belly of Liverpool Street Station and boasts all the character, charm and personality of a welcoming British pub. It is a great place to eat, drink and rest. The Freehouse and Kitchen serves delicious, independently-produced food and drink procured both from world-leading experts and local merchants.
The menu offers Hot ‘grazers’ which include homemade free range Scotch eggs with black pudding; mini Lincolnshire Poacher Welsh rarebit on crumpets; and cocktail Cumberland sausages with Colman’s mustard mayonnaise dip. Vegetarians are well catered for with options such as roasted carrot and red onion tartlet or mini baked cheese and onion potatoes.
Cold ‘grazers’ are equally tantalising with homemade cheese scones with smoked Scottish salmon and lemon crème fraiche; pork pie wedges; and homemade giant pork scratchings. Plus, for those customers who want a larger plate, there are a host of great British pub classics with a twist.
For those customers requiring heartier fayre, tender Ribeye steaks are supplied by Rare Butchers of Distinction, David and Justin. The traditional fish and chips are prepared in London Pride batter and there's a fresh pan-fried sea bass option for more contemporary, lighter palates.
Lovers of grain and grape are equally well catered for, with a selection of distinguished imported brews, Goose Island IPA from Chicago and the Trappist Chimay Rouge from Belgium. Cask ales such as Sharps Doom Bar sit alongside local beers like Meantime Pale Ale.
The Merchant has selected the best old and new world wines offered by the glass via the revolutionary Enomatic dispensers. The knowledgeable staff will encourage you to take wine flights through Burgundy, Bordeaux and the Rhone Valley or simply indulge in a rich and deep Barolo or floral Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc.
No matter what your tastes or your timetable. The Merchant of Bishopsgate has excellent food and drink to revive even the weariest of traveller.
