Perfectly pitched for the neighbourhood, on-trend Light packs the crowds into its cavernous space – a requisite blend of distressed brickwork and shabby-chic vibes. Shoreditch locals and City workers are particularly drawn to the excellent (and vast) bar, which boasts a generous range of premium spirits and locally brewed beers. The quieter, more stylish restaurant deals in modern European fare, such as starters of celeriac and Bramley apple soup with crispy kale or a terrine of smoked Norfolk chicken, leek and prosciutto with pickled vegetables. Comforting mains might feature slow-braised lamb shank with grain-mustard mash and rosemary gravy or 21-day aged Hereford Shorthorn beef rump with roasted garlic. Come the weekend, the first-floor Lounge converts from a private-hire space to a swanky cocktail bar with DJs.
