Look pretty tasty, new and shiny, don’t they?

Strangely, we squeeze our fresh apple juice from a 127-year-old fruit.

The Cox’s Orange Pippin was first grown in Buckinghamshire in 1825, by retired brewer and horticulturist, Richard Cox.

And here’s a wonderful description of the variety, picked directly from Wikipedia:

Cox’s Orange Pippin is highly regarded due to its excellent flavour and attractive appearance. The apples are of medium size, orange-red in colour deepening to bright red and mottled with carmine over a deep yellow background. The flesh is very aromatic, yellow-white, fine-grained, crisp and very juicy. Cox’s flavour is sprightly subacid, with hints of cherry and anise, becoming softer and milder with age. When ripe apples are shaken, the seeds make a rattling sound as they are only loosely held in the apple flesh.

We get ours from Eastwood Farm in Kent.

We’re not sure if our apple juice photographs that well – but just try drinking some.

 

 

05.07.12 - Bartenders

Bartenders, we need you.

To smile, to help, to serve.

From bottled beer to bubbly, and from cold ciders and perrys to hot chocolates, here at Canteen we take our drinks very, very seriously.

That means you’ll have to be as skilful at making coffee as you are at preparing our uniquely British cocktails, such as our Cockney Cobbler.

Not only that, you’ll be adept in blending helpfulness, enthusiasm and a killer smile to create sparkling customer service.

All our drinks have been hand picked for very special reasons.

So for example we serve coffee by Union Hand Roasted, a small, east London-based company dedicated not only to making the finest Arabica brew, but also to supporting coffee growing communities in remote areas of the world and investing in sustainable livelihoods and farming practices.

And we think that how you serve drinks as special as this it is just as important as how they are produced – with great care and skill.

If you possess this skill, then we want to hear from you.

Send your CV to jobs@canteen.co.uk, writing ‘bartender job application’ in the subject line.

And if we like what we see, then we’ll want to meet you in person.

Thanks for reading – and we hope to hear from you soon.

Discover the perks.

Raise your glass, say ‘cheers’ and get your timing completely wrong as you down your beverage an embarassingly long time before everyone else, making you look like an impatient drunk.

Because our new drinks menu arrives on the 29th of February.

The switched on among you will realise that the 29th is a leap day, the 366th day in the year, when normally there are 365.

And if another day isn’t a reason to have a drink, we don’t know what is. Just think of all that extra sleeping, eating and watching Masterchef you can do.

Just as well you’ll have a new wine list stocked with good, great and brilliant reds and whites, not to mention fine roses and sparkling wines, as well, to help you get through it. Cheers.
