SquareMeal Review of
Harrild & Sons
Harrild & Sons is that rare thing in the City, a bar that is suitable for both loafers and suits. Occupying a former printworks, it's now done up as a new-wave boozer in brick and raw timber with a heavyweight coppertop bar, skylit dining room and small-scale beer garden. Hip, hoppy craft beers from names such as Mikkeller and Burning Sky, plus a dedicated G&T menu, mark it out as a modern sort of place – though Harrild & Sons generously retains fair pub prices for the basics, while the big spenders can head downstairs to the 5cc drinking den, where top-flight whiskies and ace cocktails await: the H&S Collins with Scotch, ginger beer, lemon marmalade and wheat beer, for example. The food is gussied-up pub grub – Wagyu burgers, crispy duck salad, grilled lobster and chips.
