Drake & Morgan opens The Allegory

Drake & Morgan has opened The Allegory located in the heart of new Shoreditch hotspot Principal Place.

Expertly mixed and muddled by London’s best mixologists, The Allegory’s signature cocktail collection includes the fiery and sour Calypso with Pamparo rum, Amaro di Angostura, lime, sugar and egg white; the Mezcalita made with mezcal, Cointreau, orange juice, lime and sugar syrup; or an Earl Martini with Earl grey-infused Ketel One vodka, Martini Bianco and orange peel.

There are hot toddies such as the Whisky & Spice & All Things Nice, with Jameson whisky, ginger, lemon and honey. Grape lovers can choose from over 60 bottles with carefully curated wine flights for those who like to mix and match – they can opt for ‘Easy Drinking’ or the more adventurous ‘Discover’ flights.

Open seven days a week, the restaurant’s all-day dining menu features stylish small plates, sharing boards, superfood salads and more substantial mains such as seabass with braised fennel, spinach & chorizo; beef and ale pie with mash, and hand-cut 21 day-aged steaks. Puds go retro with a sharing Black Forest knickerbocker glory or crème brûlée with biscotti.

Come the weekend, there are brunch dishes available from 10am. Late risers can enjoy a classic Full English (or Full Veggie), or a lighter egg white omelette with a choice of ham, cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes or spinach. For beverages, there's Sweet Greens juice, a blend of kiwi, pineapple, cucumber and orange, and Golden Mango with mango, turmeric, yogurt and almond milk to kick start the day.

Sundays feature signature all day roasts. Diners can choose from either rib of beef or free-range half chicken served with all the trimmings including crispy roasties, Yorkshire puddings and lashings of gravy.

Open Monday – Sunday, The Allegory is also available for private hire for parties and family celebrations over the weekend.
