Following the departure of hot-shot BBQ chef Neil Rankin, who is now firing up the stoves at Smokehouse on nearby Canonbury Road, this noisy, but ‘immensely cool’ foodie boozer is in a state of flux. The current chef is working out his notice and there are plans to revamp the venue in November, creating what the owners call a ‘bar-based offering’. The upstairs dining room will be turned into a more casual lounge, but for now there are still DJs at the weekends and a drinks offer running from London-brewed ales to zesty cocktails – try the ‘beer glass’ Mary or spiced steelbottom (Flor De Cana rum, ginger, lemon, London Fields Hopster and bitters). More details to follow.
