I'm not London-based, but having had a wee read through some of the London Hibs thread, I just wondered if I'm missing some sort of tongue in cheek reference to Quinn's? The way it's described on here makes it sound a real cut above most matchday boozers, especailly in relation to the way your meet-ups appear to be centred around fine dining. I must say it all sounds very agreeable :agree:

Quinn's is the finest establishment in the whole City although strangely missing from all the 'good food' guides.

The longer it remains a "hidden secret" the better, the last thing the place needs is party buses full of Man v Food types! :-)

100%. I'm a supporter of the dress code as well, standards must be kept up or it'll be overrun with jeans and grey cotton jogging bottoms!

There is an element of light insincerity. Apart from the dress code obviously.

That’s the spirit. Glad you didn’t suggest a tuxedo!!

My only experience of Quinn's was the 2-2 game at Tynie.

I have to say that it has put me off ever even contemplating setting foot in such low-life places as the Ivy and the Dome ever again. The ambience and cordon bleu catering are simply nonpareil.

However, I am probably barred now, given that I was unable to prevent my son from dancing down the bar when Hanlon scored.

Yes they certainly do take a dim view of such behaviour.

Has "Pierre @ Quinns" reopened after the Sushi Bar/Japanese Garden Courtyard Upgrade?

I was thinking about donning the Glad Rags and pushing the boat out for the Hertz game (assuming Greater Anglia have resumed their full evening services). There is even an outside chance that they have replaced the regular Replacement Bus Service with trains at the weekend, so could attend the Huns game too.

I have to say, that between the Rail Issues and the refurb at Quinns, my weekends have been been ruined.

Where do you travel from? Been stuck a couple of times on the London to Cambridge line. Bus replacements are torture if you need a single fish!

Billericay on the Southend line. Since January it has been closing at 9:35pm Monday to Thursday and bloody buses EVERY weekend. I can't get anywhere to worry about needing a waz!

It has been a while. Much better these days, doing well. Yourself?

So what is the current SP on Quinns? Is it still shut?

Not sure, moved out of London a while ago and haven't heard from G in a while. Obviously with Mr Quinn's passing a change was going to happen but not sure if Vinnie is running it now or not.. I'll try and get in touch with G maybe have a meet up again. Will contact you by pm or FB although I'm not on it anymore I can still message.

Certainly is becoming more of a secret - last time I was in for the Hibs Huns game (where they robbed us) there were about five folk in! Used to be ten times that.

Are they showing the game tonight, or is Wednesday night Opera and Oyster night? Last time I went to see a game I ended up with a lovely plate of gravalax and watched a fascinating modern interpretation of Turandot :agree:

The match is on at Quinn's tonight in what was the Piano Bar. The refurbishment is still ongoing and should be completed by mid-July.

The advice is to enter from the side entrance (Hawley Rd) and due to the ongoing construction work, dress policy is relaxed for the two forthcoming matches. No food being served as the kitchen is closed.

Hope to see a few faces a bit later.

When you say relaxed, does that mean mufti and no tie?

If you err on the formal side re attire you will be right at home in the cosmpolitan environs of Quinns.

Your wallet will thank you.You can also get dropped off in a basic model Rolls at Zuma. I expect it would be waved on from the Quinn's drop off point.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181012/db964f7c030545a993c2bf408481b484.jpg

Most certainly would! Only top end Rolls at Quinn's if you are the sort of person to drive yourself.

I couldn't possibly drive myself to Quinns when there is such an exceptional wine and champagne cellar not to mention the rare selection of Armagnacs dating back to the 1700's.

I am looking forward to the next Quinns meal, I guess the menue has moved on since Mr Quinns passing. I am hoping for some ants next time, all the rage in Scandinavia I hear.

I was in there for the England v Sweden game, enjoying the hay-smoked haddock and wild mushroom risotto, to discover that the third brother was now running Quinns.

It put me in mind of another quirky, now deceased, fine eatery - Les Trois Garcons. If this is anything to go by, then the fine traditions and reputation of Quinns, will soar to levels unbeknown in the culinary world.

Third brother? Vinnie not get the nod? Still maître d'I hope

I didn't see Vincent. However, the third brother looks very much like Vincent, except with a keen fondness for Quinn's famous in-house chocolates and vol-au-vents...

In fact I spend the day there calling him Vincent and how 'fit and well' he looked, until his wife (the first clue that this wasn't Vincent) corrected me. Much to my shame and embarrassment.

In fairness, I had had one too many Sherries that day.....
