The perfect place to catch up with a friend who has spent the last million-zillion months traipsing round Vietnam and Bali. A healthy dose of British quirk and humble, homely food with a luxe note.
“We love beer. We love it because it tastes good and makes us feel better. We also love that the very best of beers need not cost the earth. The finest wines may be delicious, but they can cost thousands. Beer is democratic, and always has been through its rich history.”
Fish & Chips w/ Minted Peas
The Smoke Burger with Beer Battered Onion Rings
The English Pork Bap w/ Crackling, Stuffing & Star Anise Apple Sauce
I foolishly agreed to do a swapsie (half my pork bap for half the burger) and after my first bite I was more than reluctant to hand over 50% of the succulent bap. Admittedly, I have been far more enchanted by a burger than I was here but the bun was a soft and sweet brioche and I liked the flavour combination of smoked cheddar and hickory cured bacon. The fish was the length of my arm, which for a mere £10ish is pretty amazing value.
The menu handily pops a beer suggestion next to each meal so for us ale novices we didn’t feel too outta the loop, although the waiters are more than happy to divulge their knowledge and suggestions.
