The MODERN PANTRY Clerkenwell
Easter comes but once a year
We know that Easter is all about eggs & we’ll be giving you more eggs than ever this year by serving our brunch menu every day over the long weekend, from 9am until 4pm on Good Friday, Easter Saturday & Easter Monday, & from 10am until 4pm on Easter Sunday.

Also, Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a little lamb so on Easter Sunday our roast will be Anna’s favourite - Roast Leg of Lamb Auntie Soss’s Way.
We’re also maxing out on Hot Cross Buns while we can – try our Hot Cross Butty for breakfast during the week, a deliciously spiced hot cross bun chock-full with crisp streaky bacon & drizzled with maple syrup or how about a hot cross bun ice cream sandwich for something sweet? Our pastry chef has also come up with a wonderful twist on hot chocolate flavoured with Urfa chilli & liquorice, now available as an afternoon pick-me-up with a mini hot cross bun. We’ll be adding more hot chocolate flavours soon so watch this space.
Hot Cross Butty at The Modern Pantry
We’ve been working for a while on adding some worthy new products to our Modern Pantry range & our own label wines have just arrived at the restaurant, fresh off the boat from Marlborough, New Zealand.

Made for us by Sarah & Adrian Lowe who pride themselves in producing single-vineyard wines of exceptional quality, we’re absolutely delighted by the first vintages of our white - ‘A classic Marlborough Sauvignon. Grassy, herbal nose with lemony acidity and plenty of length on the palate.’ & our Pinot Noir – ‘Raspberries and redcurrant fruit, violets on the nose. Smooth as velvet on the palate, with soft, supple tannins.’
The Modern Pantry
The wines come beautifully presented with labels by our friends Kate & Tim at Hyperkit who deserve a huge thank you for another amazing design job.

Both wines are on our list now, available by the glass, carafe & bottle.

You can also buy them to take away & enjoy at home from our shop & restaurant here in Clerkenwell & from our online store.
The latest in our series of exhibitions opened this week & features the work of Sam Egarr, an Islington based graphic designer & photographer.

‘My Type Of Town’ is a series of giclee & canvas prints which merge together Sam’s love of English seaside towns, graphic design & typography & will be on display in our dining rooms from now until 22nd June.

All of the works are available to buy from The Modern Pantry.
