SquareMeal Review of
Sizeable Lockhouse inhabits a new tower at the distinctly urban Paddington Basin. This bar-diner sports a raw post-industrial interior (complete with red shipping container) softened by 1950s-style furniture. Drinks, too, follow trustworthy trends: craft beers (naturally), all bottles of wine at £22, and fun cocktails (including a 'blue-beery' Mojito and a cherry blossom Negroni). The menu from an all-day kitchen (this new quarter is home to myriad offices) lists eggs Benedict and a full English among its UK-US breakfast and brunch staples, alongside sourdough toasties stuffed with the likes of pulled pork or crab. A batch of salads includes a super food option mixing goji berries, pomegranate and artichokes, while heartier options see stacked burgers loaded with jerk chicken or confit duck. If you've got any room left, indulge in desserts such as banana fritters, or a chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream.
