SOCIAL

THE MAN

Renowned chef Jim Thomlinson is set to take up residency at The George and Heart in Margate. The pub, hotel and kitchen is located in Margate’s Old Town, close to the Turner Contemporary and the sea.

At The George and Heart, Jim will run a concept kitchen called Merman. Designed to offer a fun, approachable and social dining experience, Merman will focus on showcasing fresh Kentish produce and will feature a constantly evolving seasonal menu.

Prior to starting his residency at the George and Heart, Jim worked on a number of London-based projects. These included Prawnography, Moister Oyster Co., London Mess and Fry Hard. Jim brought his unique approach and culinary flare to each of these jobs, producing outstanding food in the process.

THE MYTH

The concept has been inspired by mythical mermen. Half man and half fish, these sea creatures straddle the ocean and the land. This is represented on the menu by outstanding surf and turf dishes.

All of the innovative dishes at Merman will be cooked on the kitchen’s very own BBQ. This helps to further enhance the flavour of these outstanding ingredients and gives the dishes at Merman a unique twist.

Merman will offer a great selection of daily and weekly specials. Freshly baked local goods will be served as accompaniments and there will be a choice of indulgent desserts, including an irresistible donut sundae with clotted cream ice cream, salt caramel sauce and toasted hazelnuts.

Delicious and innovative vegetarian and vegan meals will also be available at The George and Heart.
