Soft launch offer as the Middle East comes to Crocker’s Folly

It’s all change at the stunning Grade II listed Crocker’s Folly in St John’s Wood. Owners Maroush Group have gone back to their roots with a brand new menu that embraces the very best of Lebanese cuisine, and to celebrate there’s a soft launch with 50% off food until Thu 31 Aug.

Find a fantastic array of mezza, sharing platters and grilled meats from the Josper on the menu, as well as artisan breads and pastries from the in-house bakery. Traditional favourites such as melt-in-the-mouth falafel and homemade hummus sit alongside signatures like Sheikh al Mehshi—aubergine filled with minced lamb, pine nuts and onion baked in tomato sauce—and kastaleta veal cutlet cooked on the Josper. Baked Lebanese pastries come with a variety of fillings including minced lamb, spinach or halloumi.


The bar, previously a decadent Victorian gin palace, serves contemporary cocktails with a Middle Eastern twist, such as the Julep Baklava—whiskey blended with pistachios and brown sugar. A bar bites menu features small dishes perfect for sharing; try spicy Lebanese sausages sautéed in lemon and tomato sauce, mini shawarma bites and quinoa tabbouleh.

The soft launch discount is valid on both lunch and dinner and applies only when ordering from the a la carte menu. Reservation required.
