Deptford Market Yard are delighted to announce the upcoming opening of two new vibrant food vendors this summer. This June, Deptford will be welcoming Spanish restaurant and wine shop ‘The Tapas Room’, and local, American-inspired street food brand ‘Hanks’.
Opening 7th June, one of Deptford Market Yard’s arches will become home to ‘The Tapas Room’, who will be bringing along its wine expertise. From the owners of the acclaimed Pop Brixton restaurant and street-food van ‘Donostia Social Club’ comes the second site for ‘The Tapas Room’. A wine shop, tapas bar and a delicatessen with focus on knowledge, thorough sourcing and great ingredients. The Tapas Room will be a cosy, intimate space to eat and experience great and unusual wines, all at very affordable prices.
The Tapas Room’s first site is in Tooting’s Broadway Market, and the owner and chef Paul Belcher comments: ‘We’re so excited, not only to be opening our second site but to have found another vibrant London community to connect with. We love the idea of The Tapas Room being the local go to place to shop, eat and learn about wine, and look forward to opening our doors to Deptford.’
The second new addition to Deptford Market Yard will be Hank’s first permanent location. Opening later in June, this will be right across the street from where founders Victoria Thake and Simon Drake sold their very first sandwich in 2014. Exploring and developing its American-style menu, Hanks have traded at some of London’s best markets including the relaunched Southbank Centre, and as part of KERB, and will now be returning to Victoria and Simon’s local and much-loved neighborhood, Deptford, in the form of ‘Hank’s Burgers + Beers’.
Launching in late June, the menu will focus on local and fresh ingredients, complimenting their selection of aged beef patties and signature Cajun fries. Other exciting menu options include their craft-beer battered cod burger and a smoked tofu burger, which are of course best enjoyed with a selection of hand-picked, locally produced craft beers and soft drinks.
Visitors to Deptford Market Yard will have regular events to look forward to, such as ‘Wine tasting Wednesday’s’ at The Tapas Room and ‘Taco Tuesdays’ at Hank’s, in addition to the stellar line-up of existing tenants including Mama’s Jerk, Dirty Apron and Little Nan’s cocktail bar, to name a few.
