"The Maroush Bakehouse

At the heart of the Lebanese meal, there is bread, so it’s no wonder that when it comes to mastery of the baker’s oven, the Lebanese have a magical touch.

London’s favourite Lebanese restaurateurs, Maroush, have opened a new concept, the Maroush Bakehouse, a new artisan bakery-restaurant concept, in two locations; Earls Court and Knightsbridge.

At Maroush Bakehouse, traditional Lebanese Khobez (pita bread) and savoury and sweet pastries are expertly created and served to eat in or take away, alongside a range of British and Continental artisan breads, and fabulous Lebanese mezza, soups, salads, grills, stews and desserts.

All of the more than 25 varieties of bread are freshly made on the premises at Earls Court as is our wide range of pastries. We have a team of expert bakers and patissieres who work to traditional recipes, and use ancient craft skills combined with modern baking techniques using state of the art equipment.

You can now buy all your daily bread, including all the artisan varieties from sour doughs to baguettes, from the bakery.

You can even watch the Khobez (Lebanese flat breads) being mixed and baked whilst you eat, through the huge glass bakery window which opens up onto the bakehouse.

Maroush Bakehouse reviews

By Fiona H.

My Mum and I found this little cafe after staying at a nearby hotel. We were very impressed with everything. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we loved seeing the baking happening in the back through the glass. The oramge juice was fresh and generous and the food was really nice. My Mum had something Lebanese and I had went for the scrambled eggs and salmon. The mint tea was also made with fresh mint leaves not a bag in sight, perfection!

Part of a small chain of Lebanese restaurants and cafes, Maroush specialises in homemade breads, hot shawarmas of pitta filled with grilled meats, Lebanese pastries and impressive platters of moussaka, falafel and tabbouleh.

The Venue
The smell of freshly baked bread wafts out the door as you walk into the bakery on Earls Court Road. Peel your eyes away from rows of freshly baked loaves and cakes on your left, and you see a whirring bread factory behind a glass screen, where over 9,000 Lebanese pitta breads, or khobez, are baked each day.

Specifically designed for this restaurant, the complicated series of rollers, racks and resting machines take the bread from dough to crisp baked bread, kneading, shaping and resting it along the way. The machine is so efficient, it only runs for 3 hours a day as it can make more bread than they know what to do with. That said, there are plans to expand the bread business and provide pitta bread to neighbouring restaurants, too.

The Atmosphere
Better for lunch than for dinner, there’s a cafe vibe at Maroush with small tables and counter service. Typical of classic Lebanese cafes in west of London, Maroush has a clean-cut look with hard surfaces, glass and mirrors. There are few soft furnishings, and a long leather seat runs along the back wall with small tables in front. Two larger tables hold groups eating together in the main part of the cafe.

The Food
A business lunch platter is just £15 and is a quick and filling way to navigate the best sellers on the menu. There are also set menus for two and four people including a mixed grill with all the trimmings.

It's hard to resist a carb-feast of hot, freshly made pittas dipped in creamy baba ghanouj, or the spinach, lamb and cheese filled pastries. The food is good, but it does lack some charm; it ticks the boxes without doing anything unexpected. The service is very friendly and attentive, but the hard-edged decor feels a little functional.

Grilled chicken and lamb shawarma pitta pockets are a highlight of the meal. Crispy grilled edges of meat are deliciously packed into warm pitta, with addictive creamy garlic sauce on the side.

The counter is packed with freshly baked pastries, breads and fillings for hot sandwiches. Large cakes, tarts and cheesecakes are also made in the bakery downstairs, and glisten temptingly at those with a sweet tooth.

The Drink
Hot fresh mint tea is the perfect finish, served with small Lebanese sweet pastries and baklava. No alcohol is served, but a tropical smoothie is a thick, mango-infused way to accompany the meal.

The Last Word
Worth popping into if you're passing by, for a quick bite to eat and a friendly taste of Lebanon.
