Haunt MCR

There are few things as ubiquitous to British culture as a pint after work. Our Italian compatriots across the sea have their own equivalent for taking the edge off a long day though, that being the “aperitivo”. If you recognize this phrase, you may be familiar with the aperitif, an alcoholic drink to stimulate the appetite before a meal. Similarly, the aperitivo is an entire tradition dedicated to pre-meal festivities.

Luckily for us, Haunt has brought this tradition to our doorstep with their aperitivo hour. Available from 5pm to 6pm, Monday to Thursday, Haunt MCR offers a special menu in true Italian spirit.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do, meaning that the best way to enjoy this is to order as any Italian would after a day full of meetings and headaches. Bring some good company to take a seat in the beautifully decorated Haunt MCR and make your choice from their curated menu.

For the full experience, you are recommended to order a light spritz and one of their platters to snack on while you de-stress. Sip on either a bright citrus spritz or fruity rovo spritz to get yourselves started and decide on your platter. You can opt for a board full of meat or cheese, as well as split the difference with the meat and cheese board. Whichever you select is sure to hit the spot without ruining your dinner appetite.

Regardless of your choice, Haunt’s platters all include slices of fresh, warm bread and a selection of unique spreads. With their meat and cheese platter, it is served with a trio of truffle honey, tomato and chilli tapenade and watermelon jam in rustic dipping bowls.

Alongside this is your smorgasbord of meat and cheese nibbles, with servings of soft cheeses and classic charcuterie. An extra option is to order a “livener” from their menu, a small drink that is suitably sweet and strong to revive yourself when you need it most.

There is no need to book, just walk in and order with your favourite compatriots to indulge in a much-deserved treat of food and drink. Find Haunt MCR on the corner of Peter Street and take a leaf out of the Italians’ book now.
