Square Meal Review of Jones & Sons ?

Originally a textile factory and more recently Dalston’s Arcola Theatre, this all-day venture comes courtesy of the eponymous Jones family – one-time hoteliers in Wales (although son Andy earned his stripes running a pub on Broadway Market). Inside, it’s a clever hotchpotch involving everything from commercial maritime salvage and Scandinavian furniture to a classic Italian deli counter. Breakfast, brunch and daytime snacks keep the locals satisfied, while the full menu taps into the current vogue for revivalist British flavours: think whisky-cured salmon with soda bread and sorrel mayo; pressed pork belly with spiced apple chutney and bone marrow jus; or roast cod and Shetland mussels with lemon buttermilk and spinach. There are also detours for wild mushroom fricassee with salt polenta, before the kitchen brings it all back home with Eton mess. London-brewed ales and hand-picked wines top the drinks list.
