As with any good barmaid, Lady Abercorn is happy to talk to anyone, any time.

This is the premise for Andaz London Liverpool Street London’s Artificial Intelligence barmaid that you can pour your heart out to and receive words of wisdom in return on your mobile phone.

Individuals can chat to Lady Abercorn on Facebook messenger about a range of topics, from how to escape a terrible date, to what the meaning of life really is. The AI barmaid will also answer any questions on the venue, make bookings as well as deliver secret offers on drinks and food.

The new pub serves both classic and innovative gastronomy, a large selection of wine, spirits and beers - including the Lady A IPA that it brews itself.

The signature piece on the menu is an iconic roast, served with bottomless Yorkshire puddings and a menu of both traditional and unique gravies. The roasts rotate with a different dish served each day, including lamb shoulder, roast corn-fed chicken and pork loin, along with a vegetarian vegetable wellington. 

The menu features ‘Homely Classics’, including warming favourites beef feather blade bourguignon served with Alsace bacon, chestnut mushrooms and potato puree and British fish & chips, served with mint and marjoram crushed peas, samphire & anchovy tartare and triple cooked chips, whilst an array of global plates, such as king prawn and coconut curry with steamed basmati rice & green mango pickle and harissa glazed aubergines with freekeh and lentils and a tahini & low fat yogurt dressing can be found under ‘a dish of my diary’.

For lighter options, ‘Lady A’s Favourites’ include smoked haddock & cauliflower tart, with parmesan custard & charred baby leeks and stuffed Romano peppers with wild rice & nuts served with fennel puree and red pepper essence and a ‘snack bar’ menu will also be available, featuring smoked mac and cheese croquettes, wild boar scotch egg served with quince & mandarin marmalade and British cold cuts with house pickles.

Lady Abercorn’s combines traditional pub decor with bold reds and blues and beautiful furnishings. The Grade II listed venue is complete with authentic Victorian features, including cast iron windows and coats of arms lining the walls, as well as items from the landlady’s long history and expansive travels.

Open Monday to Friday from 11:30am until 11pm, Saturday 12pm until 11pm and Sunday 12pm until 7pm. Roasts served on weekends.
