Fans of silent movies may remember that Laughing Gravy was Laurel & Hardy's dog in the film of the same name; it was also one of the slang pseudonyms for illegal booze during Prohibition. But this revamped eatery is no joke when it come to the business of food, hospitality & drinking. Occupying the ground floor of an old foundry building within easy reach of the Old & Young Vic theatres, it offers seasonal British flavours aplenty, from prawn & haddock Scotch eggs to pink grapefruit & London gin curd with orange popping candy via cider-marinated lamb rump with minted broad beans & peas or poached sea trout with roasted artichokes, wilted spinach & heritage tomato salsa. Steaks, burgers, salads & fishcakes make up the numbers, with Neal’s Yard cheeses to round things off. Alternatively, head to the buzzy bar for sociable drinks or an after-hours’ nightcap.
