The Schoolhouse


Often find yourself longing for those glory days when Grange Hill was all over the TV guide, when Freddo’s were a cool 10p and when it was perfectly acceptable to wear trainers that flashed on every stride?

The Schoolhouse is this perfect throwback to your school days and so much more. It’s a nostalgic playground for adults; a bar and restaurant with all kinds of retro memorabilia to take you back in time.

The Schoolhouse isn't just a gimmicky restaurant though, they are serious about food and drinks, using fresh, quality products and offering a seasonal menu. The coffee is a unique blend, roasted in East London by Mission. Fancy something stronger? The signature Cocktails are made using homemade syrups, cordials and interesting infusions (you won't find these anywhere else!) alongside your favourite classics, plus a 'Happy Hour' running throughout the week and on Sunday evenings. There is a brilliant range of ever changing craft beers on draught and small batch brews in bottles and cans. Fancy some vino with your meal? The wine menu is selected by a Sommelier to ensure quality wines work well alongside the menu.

Whether it's a chilled weeknight dinner, brunch with your mates after a workout (bottomless options available), a banging Sunday roast to soak up a hangover from the night before or a Large birthday party in our semi-private Library area, there's something for everyone at The Schoolhouse.
