18th September - 12th October

From September 18th onwards Aleksandar will be joining us at Urchin Wines!

Aleks's menu is a modern take on Bulgarian and Balkan home cooking. Staple dishes such as the dolma rolls(pictured), stuffed mussels and filo pies are elevated through global influences.
A thoughtful expression of Eastern European food in today's Britain - think kimchi cabbage rolls and cured egg yolk spanakopita.

We are so excited to welcome the duo, ‘Scotch + Ginger’ otherwise known as Margates wonderful Lisa Jayne Harris & Duncan to Urchin for the whole of November!

TACOS! Yes, that’s right, tacos! Arguably the best communal food and a bloody good challenge for us to pair wines to.

Pickled Cod tacos, chicharrones, drunken beans, braised pork taco, fish ‘n’ chip taco, salsa macha for days and the very special Walpole bay rice featuring homemade sea salt and dehydrated seaweed (it’s out of this world), apple crumble taco and much more....

“A food writer and a chef with numerous supper clubs and large-scale events under their belt, they're passionate about good food and good times. Scotch might not always wear a kilt, but Ginger is always ginger.

Based in Margate, we're a supper club where you can expect all the delight of a restaurant tasting menu, but with the relaxed, pass-me-the-wine feeling of dinner with friends (plus plenty of second helpings).” Scotch + Ginger

As before, Food will be served Wed-Sun and we will be taking bookings.
