Now that the grey clouds begin to part, and we say goodbye to our winter coats (for now), we decided there’s no better way to celebrate the upcoming summer than updating our menu!
Hand-selecting only the freshest, most seasonal ingredients for our dishes, we aim to give you our own little bit of sunshine at Eight.
Our chefs have been working hard in our kitchen, testing a selection of our all-time summer favourites. Focusing on the healthy, well-balanced diets of the most tropical countries, we’ve whipped up a plethora of mese style dishes, along with buying, testing and eating every piece of fresh fruit we can get our greedy hands on (no regrets!).
Which leads us to ask you a pretty big question...
What do we want? Smoothies!
When do we want them? Now! I’m so damn hot!
That’s right. Last year, as England experienced one of the hottest summers in 50 years, you guys couldn’t get enough of our Smoothies. Wanting to give you only the highest-quality ingredients, we updated our Smoothie menu to be as refreshing and fruity as naturally possible.
No expense was spared with any ingredient, after all, that wouldn’t be the Eight way. We use only fresh-pressed juices and buy our fruit from the infamous Smoothielicious - a brand who are just as serious as us when it comes to providing high standards.
Choose between our Green Machine, Mango Twister or Berry Energizer and aggressively debate amongst your friends over which one is the best. Trust us, they’re definitely worth being passionate over.
Of course we’ll keep you guys updated for the Menu drop, but for now, feel free to drop in and try some of our long-standing contenders.
Planning a party can be stressful, right?
Trust us, we know.
That’s why here, at Eight, we aim to relieve you of as much party-planning stress as possible.
We will work alongside you from start to finish, ensuring every element is perfect, allowing you to enjoy your night without a worry.
We offer a personal, tailored menu from our Kitchen, where you’ll be in close contact with our head chef so he understands exactly what you and your fellow party-goers need. Since our earliest days, we aim to promote dietary inclusivity, offering Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Vegan and Vegetarian options so no one goes hungry. Our fully trained bar staff will assist in designing your bespoke cocktail menu for your big night, as well as giving you private access to our very own craft beer shop, Basement Jars.
We believe that it’s ‘all in the details’ when it comes to planning your special night. From the music to the decorations, our team can assist you in compiling the ultimate music playlist to accompany the theme of your party.
Don’t have time to come and set up the decorations? Leave it to us!
The anticipated run-up to the party is when time seems to get away from you, and hours feel like minutes. Decorating seems too much of a long task amidst the millions of other things you haven’t even got around to. So, just drop us a line and let us know what time you’ll be dropping those pesky decorations off, and we’ll be happy to take them off your hands and decorate the restaurant for you.
Whether it be a sit-down dinner, a grand buffet or just a good ole’ knees up, we aim to be there for you every step of the way.
A few things just worth a quick mention:
Even though we have three spacious floors which can accommodate both small and large groups, we have a maximum capacity of around 50 diner or 60 drinkers. This is to ensure both you and our staff can easily navigate the restaurant without being elbow-to-elbow with each other. Our minimum number of guests is 37 with a minimum spend per head and/or the price of the room-rental.
Love thy neighbour!
Due to licensing and noise-level laws, we kindly ask guests to vacate the premises by 11pm at the latest, but fret not, there are plenty of great bars around where you can continue your night including our sister venue the Alb, located on Smithfield Road!
So, if you feel like we’d be a good match and can host your party, why don’t you give us a call on 01743 213214 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org where we’d be happy to give you any information you need.
See you soon!
