Smokehouse Chiswick 1

Squaremeal Review of Smokehouse Chiswick ?

Set in leafy, residential Chiswick, this offshoot of Smokehouse in Islington is a welcome addition to the west London gastropub scene. Punchy, powerfully flavoured smoked meats are the forte here, and just about everything is laced with serious amounts of throat-tingling chilli “that would make an Aztec wince”. Starters of beef-shin tacos with chipotle aïoli and green sauce or charred mackerel escabèche with kohlrabi and apple rémoulade provide the warm-up for headline acts such as rare-breed burgers with Korean pulled pork and fries, pork belly with spiced fish broth, smoked pineapple and rainbow chard or various smoked meat platters (depending on the butcher’s cuts). For pud, you mind find smoked strawberries (in mash-up with matcha blancmange and crystallised hazelnuts) or you can play it (relatively) safe with doughnuts, marshmallow and spiced chocolate. The extensive garden is ideal for lingering over Saturday brunch, and there are ‘feasting’ deals for big groups – all washed down with esoteric beers, trendy cocktails and fizz.

You'd Better Like it Hot

by   silver reviewer (26)

May 2015

This was our second visit to this restaurant, and I wish that we'd had a better experience as it is within walking distance from our house. The first visit was in fact rather pleasant. We had a charming and very funny Polish waiter, the food was all right if not memorable and there was soft background music. This second visit, though, was indicative of precipitous decline. The best thing is the atmosphere. The restaurant area is dimly lit with extremely comfortable armchairs. I would...

    a little lusciousness: BULL IN A CHINA SHOP, SHOREDITCH :: a little lusciousness: SMOKEHOUSE, CHISWICK

    Chiswick's got a new star!

    It seems West London is finally coming into its own as far as good food is concerned. Slowly, restaurants are starting to open that aren't part of a huge high street chain and it's all very exciting. Neil Rankin is the latest chef to take anchor in W4 with his 2nd Smokehouse restaurant - the original is in Islington, and was the UK's first real wood BBQ restaurant. Smokehouse Chiswick has taken residency in the old pub, The Hole in the Wall, which has been transformed into a gorgeous restaurant, with dark walls, benches and cosy seats, whilst retaining a true pub feel with a long...

    Matt The List :: Matt The List: Smokehouse

    First up, Neil Rankin & Noble Inns have converted Chiswick's Hole In The Wall gastropub in to another meaty Smokehouse, following on from success with the concept in Islington.

    The North London branch has an enviable beer selection that the W4 outpost doesn't quite match, but there is a marvellous whisky bar out West instead with 100+ bottles from all over the world. Arrive early and splash out on a pre-dinner Yamazaki 18yo dram...

    Sharking for Chips and Drinks :: Chiswick Smokehouse - Sharking for Chips and Drinks

    For a cuisine that was born out of poverty and slavery, it seems a little rich that many places in London have people lining up to pay for it by the 100g. I weirdly got my schooling on the importance of the barbecue from shows such as Treme and House of Cards and I can’t wait to take a tour of the Deep South in the next year or two to properly learn about what I should expect when I order a tray.
    In the UK it’s a largely hit and miss affair with many new openings just trying to jump on the bandwagon any which way they can. Though there are some who have heeded the words of the gospel and are dispensing what I...
