Billed as London’s only meadery, The Gosnells Mead Bar has launched in Bermondsey.

Housed in a railway arch with capacity for over 100 guests, the bar serves a wide range of Gosnells mead styles, from 0% to 12% abv, made by head brewer Will Grubelnik.

Founder Tom Gosnell said: “Our meads are based on just honey and water fermented to show the brilliance of the honeybee and its flowers.”

“The new bar has opened just in time for the London Marathon on Sunday 2nd October. The race passes through Bermondsey, so what better way for guests to reinvigorate all the senses than by visiting the Bermondsey Mead Mile, surrounded by a cornucopia of amazing brewers.”

The Gosnell Mead Bar’s draught selection is led by its new dry Wildflower Mead (4% abv) which is drawn from the nectar of 45 species of flowers, bushes and trees. It is gluten-free and sparkling, with no added sulphites, made from a brew using 100% honey and with no added sugar.

The bar will serve seven other meads on tap including Raspberry Wildflower 5.4%, Sweet Cherry 8% and a cloudy Mojito Mead at 5.5%. There will also be 75cl bottles of Gosnells 5.5% Classic and of Gosnells 12% Vintages, dating back to 2019. A range of 4% canned meads including Sour, pink Hibiscus and Hopped are also available.

Found on 72 Enid Street, London SE16 3RA, The Gosnells Mead Bar is open Wednesday to Sunday.
