SquareMeal Review of
The Butcher's Hook
Day or night, the delightful ‘Hook’ seems to be abuzz with locals & off-duty professionals – testament to the all-round quality of its offering. Its pared-back, gastropub interiors are starting
to look a little worn, but the atmosphere, food & wine keep punters coming back for more. Helpful & clued-up staff are on hand to cope with a daily menu that might run from confit pig’s
cheek with chorizo & smoked paprika, via a classic cassoulet for two with walnut salad to hot chocolate fondant. Many dishes come with suggested wine pairings, & the ‘diverse’ list includes
plenty of good bins around the £20 mark. A blackboard menu is available all day, so pop in for potted shrimps or some homemade biltong to go with your pint of Greene King IPA.
