Now run by contract caterers Ampersand rather than Searcy’s, this is the smartest of restaurant/bars in a row of warehouses on West India Quay. Its name comes from the provisions once stored here
(check out the exhibits in the adjoining Museum of London Docklands), & the heritage lives on in the form of bespoke mojitos & vintage rums. The British menu of platters, small plates &
stuff on toast is done ‘with a twist’, but that’s understating it: a seafood cocktail comes with lettuce pannacotta & saffron jelly, while salmon tartare gets the miso & wasabi treatment.
At other times, the kitchen goes conventional with signature fishcakes, bite-size Yorkshire puddings with rare beef, classic mains & sandwiches. The flexible raw wood & brick space welcomes
everyone from single diners at the bar to office get-togethers on the terrace.
The West India Quay side of the Wharf tends to be one of the go-to locations for after-work drinks, so it was high time to explore what the area offers in terms of lunches. Rum & Sugar makes me think of Jamaica and pirates for some odd reason (admittedly, the rum is probably the culprit there, but sugar itself used to be one of the most valuable goods pirates could get their hands on).
