It would appear that Mark Hix has had the good sense not to completely redesign the perfectly good site that Aaya created (devastated that is no longer) but rather dangle Damein Hirst art from the high ceilings which may appeal to the local creatives. I was more interested in the warm mini loaf of white bread and butter pat immediately brough to the table with a compulsively ordered Bloody Mary (available in pitchers). Water offered for the table was still, sparkling or tap which will please the eco crew, and the menu was gutsy, original, British and carnivorous which will infuriate vegeterians. Even the crab apple and Parsnip soup probably contained crustacean. My main of Hanger steak with baked bone marrow was sliced beef, a mini trough of marrow, parsley, garlic and breadcrumbs. My Bakewell tart's crust also definitely contained animal fat which is why it was so tasty. Hix was busy, the courses came in quick succession but that was just my personal experience and not a judgement. This is a great place for a hearty meal without the shepherds pie and fishcake predictability of similar ‘British’ establishments. I shall return for delightful surprises.
