SquareMeal Review of
Formerly The Steak Exchange, this Brit-grub City dweller has retained its owners (Davy’s), received a new name and now plies its trade as a please-all restaurant with bar. The classic pub-style interior of leather armchairs and bare tables is accompanied by a menu of kindred spirit. The odd nod to food fashion (superfood salad with edamame beans and quinoa, triple-cooked chips or a steak bruschetta, perhaps) peeks through amid the steak burgers, bangers and mash, and chicken Caesar salads. On our visit, the grilled chicken was a generous, deftly cooked helping – and we couldn’t fault the plump, deeply braised rump steak. Both the food and drink offer reasonable value, with the French-leaning wine list embracing every other major region, and classic cocktails starting at £7.50. As is the City norm, Salt Point really comes alive at lunchtime, and with its off-street terrace and filling food, covers all bases with ease.
