Hoxton Beach bought a van-full of oranges at the doors of the organic growers Ave Maria near Seville just before Christmas and we have some to spare. Just drop in at one of our cafés and leave your email details. They make great marmalade and you can always buy ours, but everyone’s taste is different (we go for lowish sugar).. The oranges were one of three bulk imports we made just before Brexit — the others were organic Burgundy and organic Greek olive oil.
Lockdown 3 rules mean Hoxton Beach can’t sell alcohol at our park cafés, but we can organise a home delivery from Highgate Wood or Queens Park. It’s particularly sad we can’t offer our popular mulled apple juice with calvados or mulled wine. But we can sell mulled apple juice so maybe if it’s close enough customers can run home and splash in some of our Somerset Cider Brandy while the apple juice is still hot.
With a new National Lockdown we are suspending our Hoxton Beach falafel stalls in Whitecross Street and Goodge Place lunchtime markets. With a new effort to keep people working from home it does not seem to make sense to keep going with these two office-orientated markets. But we will carry on in Nags Head given that Holloway is more of a residential area. If you work at Homerton Hospital we are re-starting our NHS staff service starting we hope lunchtime this Wedesday 6 January.
Sadly London Fields and Parliament Hill Fields Lido are to close again; the Hoxton Beach London Fields cafe will close but we will hope Parliament Hill Fields Lido café will stay open like in the Autumn lockdown. We also hope we will be able to do takeaways from Queens Park and Highgate though our popular alcoholic mulled drinks must stop (apple juice can continue of course). All takeaway alcohol sales are now banned, but you can still buy our lovely wines beers and ciders online for home delivery. We will reinstate online ordering tomorrow Tuesday 5 January.
We have been very busy with takeout sales at the park cafés and for the next few days have disabled online ordering. So sorry. Do email us at email@example.com if you want to be kept updated.
