SquareMeal Review of
Mason & Company
Fine craft beer, with a constantly changing selection of over 20 draught taps and a wide range of bottles and cans, is the first reason to visit this Hackney offering. But, when it’s coupled with great ex-street food from Rachel Jones, does it really need a third? Enjoy great views over the canal from huge plate glass windows, or sit outside enjoying the sunshine while tucking into classic, hearty Italian specials. These include a polenta crusted sub with pork and beef meatballs, marinara sauce and provolone cheese, a braciole steak (aged for 45 days and cooked for six hours) stuffed with garlic, parsley, chilli and pecorino, and a classic clams casino (clams, bacon, butter and bread crumbs). If it all sounds a bit formal, Italianate bar snacks are available as well.
