SquareMeal Review of
A snug fit on leafy Holland Park Avenue, this grey-fronted gastropub/brasserie is a handy spot for thirsty and hungry types with its circular zinc bar and tables dotted all around. The menu is a
hotchpotch of British and Mediterranean ideas based on good sourcing (sustainable fish, traceable meats etc), from small plates such as crispy ham hock salad with piccalilli, baked Cornish crab or
Spanish charcuterie to big helpings of 28-day aged rib-eye with Café de Paris butter, shoulder of West Country lamb with smoked garlic mash or herb-crusted Lowestoft plaice with mussels and braised
artichokes. Long lunches and weekend breakfasts suit the local crowd as well as tourists, while the drinks list includes real ales (Sharp’s Doom Bar, Fuller’s Chiswick), a modest selection of
cocktails and some reasonably priced international wines.
