Neighbourhood spot Coin Laundry have been standing strong on the corner of Exmouth Market for a while now. We vistited when they first opened and absolutely loved the 70s inspired menu (that chicken kiev!). So when we heard whispers of a new menu celebrating British producers and seasonal ingredients we couldn’t wait to get down there. In particluar, the all day dining spot is now serving up everybody’s fave, the Sunday Roast.
We stopped in last Sunday to check it out and the menu did not disappoint! A choice between Shropshire ribeye, slow roast lamb leg or chicken with a wild garlic stuffing made for a tricky decision. I opted for the Lamb (£16.50 with all the trimmings) which was juicy and tender, roasties were crisp and fluffy and pickled veg gave contrast to the plate. A giant Yorkshire was stacked on top of it all and the whole thing swam in a boozy gravy giving it a real comforting flavour.
Veggie’s are not left out here either, the beetroot and woodland mushroom Wellington (£13.50 with all the trimmings) sat proudly on the bar top and seemed to be a popular choice for many of our fellow roasters.
Starters include fried chicken with devon chilli and yoghurt, lamb croquettes and Wiltshire burrata, and fennel pork scratchings feature on the bar snacks!
The dark chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream and honeycomb made for a winning dessert. The warm fondant oozed as the spoon cut through the soft cake exterior, that paired with the cool vanilla ice cream was a dream to behold.
All in all, a great spot for a sunday stroll and bite to eat. To book a table, visit their website here.
Side note… a popular looking cafe resides opposite named Briki, we popped in after our roast for a coffee and can confirm it’s a damn good cup.
