The Hub’s coolest new bar has just got even better after launching its stylish ‘small plates’ food menu in mid January. Celebrate:MK’s Jon Boyle was among the first to try it out when the kitchen opened…
Blossom Room has become every local blogger’s dream since the stunning Japanese-inspired bar opened in The Hub with a pledge to serve the theatre of food and drink.
With hand-selected spirits, a curated wine list, artisan cocktails and premium gins served under a canopy of beautiful cherry blossom, the drinks and decor have been earning rave reviews at MK’s most Instagrammable bar.
And after booking a table to test out Blossom Room’s new small plates menu on the kitchen’s launch night, it is perhaps unsurprising that the food oozes the same class as everything else in the venue.
I went along with a friend and between us we shared eight of the hand-crafted small plates from the menu, which includes plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.
Our favourite dishes included Lollipop Chicken, Mauritian Potato & Butterbean Curry Steak & Blue Cheese and Chilli Lamb Meatballs, which were cooked to perfection by head chef Martin.
The atmosphere was very relaxing as we enjoyed a live performance from a singer/ acoustic guitarist throughout our meal, who performed at a nice volume that allowed us to easily hold a conversation.
The theatre of food and drink was certainly served on our visit and, overall, Blossom Room is a blooming marvellous dining experience.
Food is served from 12pm to 9pm daily at Blossom Room (three-for-two on dishes from 12pm to 5pm). To book a table call 01908 694777 or visit blossomroom.co.uk. The bar is based at The Hub, 4 Mortimer Square, Milton Keynes, MK9 2FB.
