Out of the same stable as The Pantechnicon and The Thomas Cubitt, this stucco-fronted early-Victorian building on a corner site has been transformed with rustic Provençal interiors, limed oak, wooden floors, dried flowers and bric-a-brac. At street level, there’s a light-filled pubby bar with beer on tap, an open kitchen and tables colonising the pavement. Eat next to the drinkers or in the three quirky dining rooms on the first floor from a menu that promises reliable, seasonally attuned modern cooking – ‘gorgeous’ pizzas from the wood-fired oven, roast duck with sweet potato and beetroot, smoked haddock and salmon pie. Breakfast is served every day and there are Sunday roasts, too – plus four bedrooms and a ‘garden atrium bar’ in the basement (a terrific party space with ‘fabulous staff’). Great fun all round.
