The Hunter's Moon

The Hunter's Moon pub has opened in London's Chelsea, the first site from the Lunar Pub Company, co-founded by Hubert Beatson- Hird and chef Oliver Marlowe, who previously worked as a sous chef at the Glasshouse and Chez Bruce restaurants in London.

The site is split into a pub, with armchairs and a library corner, and a dining room, offering modern European dishes, snacks and sharing plates, such as scotch eggs, sausage rolls and courgette and ricotta croquettes.

It also serves Saturday brunch and Sunday roasts. A signature ‘Bloody Susan' to share involves a DIY Bloody Mary served on a lazy Susan in the centre of the table.

The site features oak and vintage tile flooring, pendant lighting, aged leather armchairs, an Aga and an open fireplace.

The group plans to open a further two sites in the next two years.
