Squaremeal Review of Vivat Bacchus ?

Open sandwiches and kangaroo burgers are always popular, but readers have also praised the healthy ‘five a day’ salads and “fantastic” BBQ short-rib with Coca Cola glaze, blossom honey, star anise, stem ginger and Asian slaw; after that, perhaps try mango pannacotta with vanilla and passion fruit. Bacchus himself would no doubt be impressed by VB's cellars holding over 18,000 bottles.

It was then that I saw a poster for Club Carnivore. The rules are simple 1) Red meat only 2) Red wine only 3) Magnums or bigger bottles only, all for £69 per person. It sounded like the perfect evening to me, so I rounded up the troops and booked a table for the...
