The 50-cover restaurant includes an oyster bar seating eight guests and a basement saloon bar which will play host to a series of live music nights. The frequently changing menu, designed by Richard Corrigan and Head Chef, Simon Merrick, features produce from Corrigan’s estate in Ireland, Virginia Park Lodge, and is split into 4 sections; Small, Wood Oven & Grill, Sides and Sweet.

Merrick, aged 32, has worked with Richard for 11 years collectively, starting off as a commis at Michelin-starred Lindsay House, Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill and most recently, Corrigan’s Mayfair, where he was Sous Chef.

Named after the daughter of Biddy Mulligan – a legendary Dublin street seller – Daffodil Mulligan hopes to showcase her Irish spirit and hospitality in London’s East End.
