Square Meal Review of Idlewild ?

This Maida Vale watering-hole likes to think of itself as a premium pub, offering classy cocktails, designer fittings & a standalone dining area. It works. Diners on the ground floor tuck into a swish brasserie menu of salmon tartare & toast, poulet-frites, seared swordfish with mango salsa, & apple crumble with Calvados crème fraîche. Those after a quiet meal should think again. Decibel levels tend to rise as the evening wears on, with an animated crowd queuing up at the pewter bar to order Ruby Royales (vodka, Chambord & Champagne), blueberry margaritas & classic white Russians. Things reach fever pitch in the upstairs bar, where DJs & bands provide the weekend soundtrack. Escape to the walled garden for something a little more serene.
