The Astronomer reopens

Fuller’s is delighted to announce The Astronomer [125-129 Middlesex Street, London E1 7JF] has reopened with a complete new look, an enticing new menu and a wide range of cask and craft beers on the bar.

In the heart of Spitalfields, right by London’s busy Liverpool Street railway station, The Astronomer has been a long-term favourite for City workers and visitors alike. The pub’s new layout sees the bar now positioned at the back of the ground floor – opening up space for more seating. Plus, additional poseur height tables offer even more seating options – making it the perfect spot for a couple of pre, or post, train drinks.

Downstairs at The Astronomer customers will find the newly re-named Rocket Room, which has also undergone a transformation. Now with its own bar, this great cellar space will be open for evening drinks and dining, and available for private events – from birthday parties to corporate functions.

On the menu, small plates and sharing boards accompany a range of delicious burgers and pub classics – with plenty of seasonal ingredients plus vegetarian and plant-based options.

Lorenzo Nicoletti, General Manager of The Astronomer, said: “I’m so excited to be reopening The Astronomer. The new layout of the bar means we’ll have more space than ever to welcome our customers – whether they’re visiting for a quick drink or to savour our delicious, fresh food.

“The Rocket Room is the new star of the show – it’s a fantastic space with plenty of tables and booths, ideal for intimate dining or drinks. Or, if you’re looking for a great function space, the Rocket Room is perfect for all events.

“The Astronomer was already a popular City haunt – and with our new look and layout, plus a fantastic range of food and drink, my team and I are looking forward to being more popular than ever.”
