The Last

Squaremeal Review of The Last ?

Like its stablemates in the Lewis & Clarke group, The Last is definitely more ‘gastro bar’ than gastropub. Beyond the polished wood, steel fittings & colourful pinstriped sofas, there is some better-than-average lunchtime food to be had. The kitchen takes pride in its work, fleshing out its regular menu with daily fish specials such as smoked haddock with mustard sauce & a delicately poached egg; alternatively, pick from the carte, which offers interesting possibilities including wild boar & Chimay beer sausages. Country bumpkins lured to the bright lights make a beeline for pints of Adnams bitter & Hogan’s cider, while wine buffs have around 20 selections by the glass to consider; note that all drinks are half price for the duration of three happy hours (5-8pm).

Dec 2009

The food, drinks and service were all excellent. I liked the “old” tables and chairs, it made for a fairly relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant was lovely and open and bright, but on the day we visited, and maybe it was just where we sat, but we were very cold and felt like we were in a draught. This somewhat spoilt our dining experience, but overall we were impressed and would return, though maybe on a warmer day!
