On Wednesday (2 March), Merlin Events London launched The Tavern pub at The London Dungeon to 100 invited guests. The evening began with a drinks reception in the Gin Palace, before an actor-led tour of the London Dungeon, complete with ride.

Guests then enjoyed drinks and food served by caterers Food by Dish in The Tavern, while an East End landlady and landlord kept them entertained with tales about the Great Beer Flood. The caterer served rustic platters featuring black pudding scotch eggs and giant Gruyere cheese straws, followed by a selection of pub classic bowl food options, including sausage and mash with crispy onions and fisherman’s pie with cheddar crust. Dessert canapés included sea salt crusted chocolate tart and passionfruit and coconut macaroon.

The group then continued to Waterhouse Way, where they were served lobster cannelloni and treacle roast beef fillet, short rib croquettes and artichoke cream.
