SquareMeal Review of
With its smoky glass frontage, creamy leather booths and designer touches, Hush is looking pretty spruce these days – although secluded outside tables are still its biggest lure. Sadly, service can be “slow” and the food doesn’t earn universal approval, but the all-day menu covers a lot of ground – from crispy squid with saffron aïoli or mac ‘n’ cheese gratin to signature burgers, lobster rolls, roasts cod with béarnaise sauce or chimchurri lamb chops with spicy sweet potato. Breakfast and afternoon tea are also good calls, and the first-floor cocktail bar is a cracker, while the private room is a top spot for celebratory bashes. However, the fabulous courtyard terrace and generous availability of wines by the glass inevitably mean that Hush is at its best when the weather is warm and you’re in the mood for 175ml of pleasure.
