Martello Hall brings magic to Mare Street
Tucked away on Hackney’s Mare Street, Martello Hall is a diamond in the rough. With everything from pizzas to cocktails to brunch, there isn’t much this gem doesn’t have. The rustic downstairs bar has a relaxed feel, with the friendliest staff who are willing to offer up their help on recommendations for cocktails and food.
Best pizzas around
The impressive cocktail menu offers twists on classics and some delicious, more unusual concoctions, with many being made with Martello Hall’s own gin. The gin is made on site and Nicola the still takes pride of place on the back bar. They are also really into their absinthe, with a huge selection on offer, so if you’re a fan of that little green fairy, ask for a Leopold’s absinthe verte, it was our favourite.
As if the huge variety of alcohol wasn’t enough, Martello Hall has it’s own wood fired pizza oven which produces some of the best pizzas we’ve ever had here at Love Hospitality. Try the smoky bandit or the number 7 for a veggie treat.
If absinthe and pizza aren’t your thing, there is a cocktail bar upstairs to relax in, and if you’re a big brunch fan (as most of London is) you won’t be disappointed. Martello Hall does a bottomless brunch all weekend from 11am. Choose from Mimosas, Martello Rum Punch. Frizzante and fresh juices. Pair with the slow cooked pulled beef, cola-barbeque sauce, hot pickled onions and jalapeños in a brioche roll with green onion slaw or the Italian baked eggs, wood roast potatoes, spinach, ‘nduja tomato sauce and pizza bread.
And when working from home in your pyjamas gets too much, Martello Hall has bottomless coffee and free wifi from 8am until 5pm every weekday.
With so much going on, there isn’t a dull moment in this bright and airy bar restaurant. The management and staff are amazing at keeping on top of every customer and all other goings on too. Make a booking for brunch or pop in for an after work drink but definitely put Martello Hall at the top of your places to visit list.
