I am very new to London and a big Hibee supporter. I will be down here for the semi final tomorrow and was wondering if you guys could recommend somewhere to watch the game? Would be a lot better going somewhere with some fellow Hibs fans in attendance.
Thanks in advance.
All great meals are invocations of other meals, real and imagined. Past meals; the promise of meals; table gossip, snaps, Instagrams and advertisements. The tangible realisation of tables decked with pristine white linen and wine glasses, the unctions of fried garlic and cooked flesh. "Feast" is...
Folks - I must apologise for the radio silence prior to the Dunfermline match - I forgot it was an early evening KO .I will be in contact with Pierre tomorrow and will post the menu.Remember the dress code, folks. Strictly NO ****IN TRAINERS.
Anybody know if it'll be shown, considering Ireland v France is on and Watford v West Ham.
I'll be out in town watching Scottish Eggchasers, and was hoping I could catch this on in Quinns?
Are there any plans to meet up for the Scottish Cup tie?
Folks - it's been confirmed that we will be holding a Burns Night on the evening of Saturday 28th January 2017. The venue will be confirmed over the next couple of weeks as we're trying to secure a Thames River Boat for the evening and are awaiting confirmation.
This years guests of honour are;...
As we will all know by now, Pat Quinn is no longer with us and will undoubtedly be pulling pints looking over us on Sunday. I wasn't sure if Quinn's was going to be open for us this coming weekend, so I decided to pay them a visit on Saturday just to make sure, as emails and calls had went...
I heard last night that Pat has passed away. What a Gent!
Here's an article about his life from the Camden New Journal:
Folks - we've produced a limited number of t-shirts that will be available at the forthcoming Burns Night. Top quality material and available in one size only (XL) - The cost is only £10 (+£3.50 p&p should they be mailed) - if anyone reading this wants to reserve/order - please either drop me a PM...
As has been the the norm over the last few years, Pierre is once again spending January back home in Paris and the restaurant has a cover-chef for the month of January. This year (or actually since 27th December) Anne Sophie Pic (the only female French chef to currently hold 3 Michelin stars) has...
Folks - apologies for the lateness in starting a thread, but I've only today had it confirmed that Saturday's match against Morton will be shown at Quinn's in the Orangery only. Get there early if you want a seat.
There's two private parties occupying both the Brasserie and the Piano Bar and...
Central London has inexorably been losing the social mix that once made it so vibrant. Or rather, it has become vibrant in a different way, with the wealthy of all nations buying up property increasingly unaffordable to the natives.
Yet one patch of the centre retains its old character: Camden....
Interested in hearing from anyone who has experience of the London Venue:-
We've managed to misplace our flag. It got its first airing at Anderlecht many moons ago and has seen many a battle down the years - but it's now missing - lost - kaput.
Us London boys were out-flagged while up at Shrewsbury, not to mention Brondby. Does anyone have it in their possession?
Flights from London are plentiful. There could be a decent number of us going and I'm looking at booking a block of tickets.
If anyone isn't on the London Hibs email list, can you please PM me with your contact details so I can keep you in the loop if you want to be part of our travel plans.
Will the final be on in Quinns? Looking unlikely I will get a ticket so planning on heading into the smoke to watch it.
Just a brief update folks, but as you probably know, the play-off quarter final ties against Raith Rovers aren't being covered on TV, so Quinn's or anywhere else for than matter is a non-starter.
All going well, the semi-final matches against Falkirk are both being shown via BT Sport. We have...
Does anyone know if Quinns is showing the game on Wednesday?
I'll need to get my dinner jacket back from the dry cleaner asap if we're on :wink:
I'm in the armed forces and now working in north London. Cannot go home for final on Sunday and gutted beyond belief. I'd imagine that most of the London boys are heading up for the final. I've asked about Quinn's on the main Hibs forums and got no real answers to anything I've asked about...
This country has one huge problem and a terrible national anthem. OK, two huge problems and a crap football team. So, three huge problems and Craig Thomson. The biggest of its problems is London, which is also our capital asset and the bane drain for the nation. London is simply too big for its...
Anyone know if the game is definitely on in Quinn's today?
All food journalists get asked the same question: "What's the best restaurant in town?" The answer is the one where they know you without having to surreptitiously check the screen; they bring you a drink without having to be told; it's where the manager/owner asks after your children by name; it's...
Hey guys I'm trying to find out if anyone knows a hibee that moved to London 70's called Donald Fletcher? He was originally from the meadows area and a good friend of my father in law and he was hoping to make contact with him, he'll be in his mid 60's now.
Thanks for any help in advance
Just a brief post to let y'all know that the match on Sunday is 100% on at Quinn's. Pierre is back in town so good eats are also guaranteed.
I can't manage this one - but catch-up with you folks again shortly.
Is there going to be a meet up for this game?
I fear London Hibs is moribund.
There is radio silence on this? What is going on? Hibs are only going to be on TV a few times this season, so it is a shame not to meet up.
If there is nothing going on, then I'll probably be in the Sheephaven Tavern in Camden/Mornington Crescent for the game if anybody wants to join me and Liam.
As it says on the tin?
If not, I'm probably going to watch it at the Sheephaven Bay in Camden.
I sent out a communique tonight to the members of the London Hibs Supporters Club that I have on my email database. The list isn't definitive, hence my post here.
If there are any London/SE England based Hibees who didn't receive the email (or who would like to be added to the list)...
There it is on the menu. My dish. My invention. Except you canít actually invent food. Only God can do that, and Ronald McDonald. You can try to keep recipes secret, like Coca-Cola or Indian restaurateurs whoíd kill their chefs if they tried to go to other kitchens, but as a rule of trotter, food...
I can now confirm that the match on wednesday is 100% on at quinn's and it will be screened in the piano bar from 19:30.
This is a kind gesture of goodwill from mr & mrs quinn as i told her that there would easily be more hibs supporters turning up than arsenal fans.
Folks in and around London Town.
Sad news to relay.
Our Front of House contact, Vincenti has unfortunately departed Quinn's. His replacement, Kevinski has informed me that the TV rights are not what they were and the same feed is being shown in the Piano Bar, Orangery and Brasserie. There...
Will there be a schedule and menus posted up soon?
I'm unexpectedly going to be in town this weekend. Is Quinn's showing this or are Hibbies with time on their hands heading anywhere central for this??
Folks - London Hibs are 25 years old this summer and Mike has kindly offered to produce a run of 25th Anniversary Commemorative Fleece Jackets.
As some will know, Mike works in the rag trade and our previous embroidered merchandise has been of the highest quality (OK - it might be hand-stitched...
Fairly new Hibee in London (new to London, not Hibs).
What pubs would you recommend to watch the semi final in this weekend?
I'm likely to be fairly central come midday.
The soil is splashed with colour. Crocuses unfurl themselves into stubby tufts of violet. Pierre plucks a flower: those spindly stamens shoot from the heart, he drops the saffron into the basket. Repeat ad infinitum.
Pierre, one of the most talented French chefs working in Britain, has just...
Nominative determination is the serendipity of having your name choose your job for you. As in the oft-quoted article from the Magazine of the Institute of Urologists written by Messrs Splatt and Weedon. Nobody remembers what they wrote about; it was never going to be as interesting as their names....
Quinnís in the 1990s was as close as you could get to a perfect restaurant. Back then, it didnít have the best food in the world, or even in London; it wasnít the prettiest or the most sumptuous room; it was a long way from having the finest wine list; it didnít offer a view. But it had that thing,...
I will be in London on 8th March and was wondering where a pub might be showing the cup game. I'm staying in the premier inn at tower bridge
Thanks in advance
Donald - it's G here.
Can you send me the London Hibs database by email as my HD collapsed and I've lost all email contacts and databases.
Thanks - Pierre also has a copy but he's filming in Monaco for his new restaurant venture that he's concentrating on.
