Daniel aims to reach beyond the craft beer market. “We love the creative, seasonal, alternative aspect within that drinkable, palatable framework but we also want to appeal to people outside the craft beer bubble.

We don’t want to be pigeon-holed as a one-hit wonder craft brewery,” he explains.

On entering Poppies Fish and Chips Emily suggests that British people might not have had their national dish without immigration. In 1860 Joseph Malin, a Jewish immigrant, came up with the idea of serving battered fish with fried potato chips — a snack which had been popularised by Belgians.
Espresso martinis are delicious. They’d taste lovely even if they were served in a jam jar.
