SquareMeal Review of
There are plenty of reasons for investigating this uncomplicated local between West Hampstead and Swiss Cottage. Wine starts at £16.50, Prosecco is yours for under £30 and brews from Edinburgh’s
Innis & Gunn, Brooklyn and Camden are among the better beers on offer. Then there are the cocktails: White Russian, Bramble, whisky sours and Raspberry Storm (a bourbon and berry mule) head a
list that is all the more keenly perused on Thursday and Friday when ‘steal deals’ apply. Weekday lunches include soup and sarnie offers (think pulled pork with smoked Cheddar), while evening
brings design-your-own tapas selections such as salt-and-pepper squid, duck parfait with damson chutney, croquettes, fritters and sweet potato chips; otherwise, larger plates might include
toad-in-the-hole, schnitzels, salads and chicken suprême. Saturday brunch, Sunday roasts, quiz nights (Monday) and live jazz (Sunday evenings) complete the package.
