Latter-day Barbies and Kens will dig this hip-as-you-like Haggerston doll, where the atmosphere is anything but dead come the midnight hour (or 3am on weekends). Quirky post-punk decor, jolly staff
and eclectic tunesmiths set the scene, while the current drinks list reads like the cast of Downton Abbey: order lady of the manor (a vodka, peach, apple and Prosecco twinkler) or have a fling with
the butler (a Bourbon and bitter apricot jam flip). You can also dine on seasonal modern British food courtesy of Hertfordshire-based resident chefs The Foragers – think mussels with sorrel and
hedge garlic or confit cuttlefish with pearl barley and fennel followed by wild hazelnut and hogweed rice pud. Meanwhile, popular Sunday roasts (four sittings from 2- 8pm) deliver the likes of
pheasant with crabapple jelly and game jus or haunch of venison with horseradish, Brussels sprout tops and Yorkshire puds.
After a bit of a hiatus, call it research, I’m back and have lots to say!Recently I went to Dead Doll’s House, don’t let the name fool you, it isn’t paying homage to a deathly childhood, or any such matter. It’s a very cleverly designed building, with lots of levels and separate rooms, littered with marker pen drawings all over the walls, an example being an entire fireplace complete with mantel piece and all the accessories artistically interpreted. Most of the tables are communal, with mismatching chairs and there’s a wonderful faux-grass roof terrace too, complete in the sense that it’s a perfect sun trap.What really inspired me after chatting with the creator, is that it isn’t a set restaurant, it has pop-ups and innovative ideas, like ‘Picnic In The Conservatory’. The offer is to prepay for your meal and then come to a sitting, so there’s no fuss on the day...
