Square Meal Review of The Cat & Mutton ?

Established in 1729 and a 300-year-old fixture of the Broadway Market scene before closing in 2013, this local legend has recently re-launched under the aegis of new owner Tom Gibson (from Ruby's in Dalston). Downstairs is a vintage boozer with enamelled mirrors, a long bar stretching the length of the room, local draught ales and a superior spirits selection. Upstairs is given over to Pearl’s – a cocktail bar in similar style, dispensing the likes of pearly queen (a lychee and lemongrass-infused take in piña colada). Street-food hero Ben Denner and his Licky Chops are responsible for the food in both pub and the bar: expect trendy riffs ranging from burnt broccoli with yoghurt and pickled mustard seeds to a bucket of mutton chops with bean salad, mash and mint sauce, rounded off with churros and cappuccinos.

The ground floor pub was buzzing with locals even though it was supposedly not opening for another 2 days. They have done an excellent job with the décor on both floors - see Tuck and Vine's photos for a better idea. After Mother Kelly's, the beers were always going to struggle to impress, but two Meantime taps will keep most happy. The Licky Chops food menu is slightly reduced in the pub area, so we swirled up the attractive spiral staircase to grab a table at Pearl's, the first floor restaurant / cocktail bar...
