The Hemingway in Victoria Park Road was renovated and reopened as a gastro pub by a collective of club, bar and restaurant insiders.
The refurb was subtle with Art Deco mirrors and smart chandeliers. A small, open-plan kitchen serves a dining room to the rear and there is an interesting selection of spirits, with bourbons and rums their specialities.
It's a great place to chill out after a walk in Victoria Park, enjoy a drink, Sunday lunch, or read the papers and magazines liberally strewn around.
The pub also hosts quiz nights, tasting events and supper clubs. It is available to hire for a wide range of events from weddings to art openings and photo shoots.
