Meet the founders
ETM was founded back in 2000 by brothers Ed and Tom Martin, with a single pub in Clerkenwell. Since then, they’ve taken their passion for creating unique, exciting venues and opened more than 17 smart city gastropubs, contemporary brasseries, sophisticated bars and small neighbourhood pubs.
Our core values of careful sourcing, the championing of British ingredients and producers, and serving up only the highest quality of food, drink and service are prevalent in every venue, but we’re also not afraid to challenge, innovate and have some fun along the way. From panoramic city-scape views to delicious roast squirrel, high profile cookery competitions to Shuffleboard tournaments, there’s always something new and exciting to try at any one of our venues across London.
We take pride in every aspect of our brave, beautiful and bold destinations. It is our attention to detail that makes our venues inspiring and enticing to our discerning customers who seek the best. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!
