Low on posing and pretence, the handsome venue attached to Shakespeare’s Globe is all about high-quality modern British food, served from morn till night. Downstairs in the laid-back bar you can have Berkshire bangers for breakfast, lunch on macaroni cheese (Cashel blue, to be exact) or nibble British ‘tapas’ such as ham croquettes. Meanwhile, theatre-goers in the upstairs restaurant can lap up full-frontal views of St Paul’s as they take advantage of the dedicated set menu, while those not joining the audience linger over dressed-up fare such as pan-fried scallops with celeriac purée and chorizo jam, roast cod with lardo, spring vegetables, lemon and Chardonnay dressing, or oozy chocolate fondant with boozy kirsch cherries. Charming staff are full of character, and drinks range from original cocktails to a concise yet considered wine list.
