Disaster struck when on the 6th December the Wagon was stolen. But all is not lost, as from Wednesday 12th January, for a few precious weeks Yianni and his team will be satisfying the burgerists of London upstairs at The Goldsmiths Tavern in New Cross - my hood - in what has been labelled the #MEATEASY. Not only will it keep our meaty needs at bay, but hopefully enough money will be raised for a brand new wagon.
The Goldsmiths Tavern has been bought by Capital Pubs, and it will soon be renamed The New Cross House. With the pub downstairs with the #MEATEASY upstairs, it's not a pop-up; more chop-up. Think dive bar - it's open till 2am on Thursdays and Fridays, 5am on Saturdays. There will be parties, boozing, burgers and other meaty delights, and all five minutes walk from my flat.
What about New Cross? 5 minutes overland to New Cross Gate from London Bridge, or the East London Line Overland serve both New Cross Gate and New Cross - the #MEATEASY is equidistant.
#MEATEASY opens in the evening of Wednesday 12th January. Don't bother trying to book a table; it's not that kind of place. They'll be serving in the evenings and lunch is a possibility if the interest is there.
I, for one, am really excited.
