SquareMeal Review of
The Dead Dolls Club
Latter-day Barbies and Kens will dig this hip-as-you-like Haggerston doll, where the atmosphere is anything but dead come the midnight hour (or 3am on weekends). Quirky post-punk decor, jolly staff
and eclectic tunesmiths set the scene, while the current drinks list reads like the cast of Downton Abbey: order lady of the manor (a vodka, peach, apple and Prosecco twinkler) or have a fling with
the butler (a Bourbon and bitter apricot jam flip). You can also dine on seasonal modern British food courtesy of Hertfordshire-based resident chefs The Foragers – think mussels with sorrel and
hedge garlic or confit cuttlefish with pearl barley and fennel followed by wild hazelnut and hogweed rice pud. Meanwhile, popular Sunday roasts (four sittings from 2- 8pm) deliver the likes of
pheasant with crabapple jelly and game jus or haunch of venison with horseradish, Brussels sprout tops and Yorkshire puds.
