SquareMeal Review of
The Draft House Chancery
For somewhere that takes everything it does so seriously, the Draft House is really rather a hoot. Beer drinkers can order third of a pint ‘samples’ at this self-styled ‘home of the third’, which lists hundreds of craft brews in bottle or on tap – all complemented by a range of ale-friendly food to have you drooling. The range of burgers with various toppings, char-pit ribs or chilli-cheese fries, could hail from a new-generation diner, while foot-long pork scratchings, Scotch eggs with curried mayonnaise, Fish & Chips, and sticky toffee pudding betray British leanings. But back to the beer: with such brilliantly named brews as Modus Hoperandi, City of the Dead and Cardinal Wolf on offer, and brewery fresh Pilsner Urquell served from giant copper tanks, how could you not be tempted? Ample neons and some rockin’ music complete the picture.
