Reverend JW Simpson 1

Squaremeal Review of Reverend JW Simpson ?

The story goes that this quirky cellar (a Bourne & Hollingsworth spin-off) was once home to a man of God whose taste in decor was self-evidently less than heavenly. Hipsters will hail his vacated pad as a vision in "raw deconstructionist chic"; others pray for divine intervention from Kelly Hoppen. Whereas the vicar's drinks cabinet might only have had Emva Cream sherry to offer, today's visitors can seek salvation at a pulpit bar set in the old coal cellar, where fine Old Testament stirs are now served in vintage stemware: Sloe Sherry Cobbler and latter-day revelations such as Brooklyn Cocktail (an Amer Picon-enhanced variant on a Sweet Manhattan), Deviation (a rosemary-fragranced Aviation), and Vieux Carré are all praiseworthy. Meanwhile, keenly attended ‘spirited sermons’ (cocktail masterclasses) aim to convert philistines to the cause of jenever, mezcal and other cult distillations.

    To be sipping on cocktails like a shameless floozy whilst the rest of the world is in the gym or quietly pushing a leaf of kale around a plate of green blandness in front of Netflix.

    And as you know, we love anything that tempts out our rebellious streak (it doesn’t take much!) here at TFQ’s.

    That’s why the recently launched Monday cocktail and snack menu at Reverend JW Simpson is one of our new favourite cures to those start-of-the-week blues...
