Square Meal Review of The Crown & Shuttle ?

Formerly a sleazy pole-dancing joint, The Crown & Shuttle has reverted to its historic role as a public house – slaking Shoreditch boozers’ thirsts with fine London ales such as Redemption Urban Dusk and Redchurch Old Ford stout, plus quality foreign imports. Wines include a smooth Italian Pinot Grigio at £26, while the appealing menu offers ribs, wings, Lebanese salads and whitebait with aïoli among its bar snacks. Otherwise, doorstep sandwiches come deep-filled with the likes of crispy duck in raspberry beer with watercress and beetroot or cavolo nero with purple sprouting broccoli, pesto and aged Gruyère. The Dalston-distressed, exposed brick interior (think Victoriana meets the 1950s) is perfectly pitched at Shoreditch nu-media, bloggers, blaggers and adventurous City boys keen to live on the edge. A heated courtyard garden is an urban bonus.

I really liked the liquorice and black cherry ketchup and thought it paired nicely with the meat...
