Harden's says

Richard Corrigan took over the site of the short-lived Nuala (RIP) with a revival of the name of his first London venture, Mulligan's; it is a “social co-op of like-minded people” based on produce from the chef's Irish farm.

Just south of Silicon Roundabout, this two-year-old Irish bar/restaurant is backed by a crack team of London’s most famous Irish foodies – chef Richard Corrigan, plus Green & Fortune’s John Nugent and King’s Place owner Peter Millican. Its small plates cooked over open fire are interesting and well-realised – even a reporter who considers the place “expensive” concedes that “otherwise it is very good indeed”.

Summary

The foodie ‘Murphia’ was out in force with this late-2019 yearling, backed by famous chef Richard Corrigan (who first made his name over 20 years ago at a different Mulligan’s, then ‘of Mayfair’), fellow Irishman John Nugent, and King’s Place owner Peter Millican (see Rotunda at King’s Place). On a corner-site just south of the Old Street roundabout vacated by Nuala (RIP), its run by Corrigan’s son, Richie, and features mid-sized seafood and meat plates fired at the open grill, served professionally but unfusilly. There’s also space for drinker on the ground floor (while the basement is a bar proper with regular live music and spoken word gigs).

Summary

The foodie ‘Murphia’ is out in force with this late-2019 newcomer, backed by famous chef Richard Corrigan (who first made his name over 20 years ago at a different Mulligan’s, then ‘of Mayfair’), fellow Irishman John Nugent, and King’s Place owner Peter Millican (see Rotunda at King’s Place). On the site south of Old Street vacated by Nuala (RIP), we are promised a bar serving proper Irish food, plus regular live music and spoken word gigs. Sláinte.
