SquareMeal Review of
The team behind renowned bars Hyde & Co and The Milk Thistle have set their sights on steak, bringing their cocktail bar philosophy to Bristol’s dining scene.
Occupying what was once the famed Markwick’s restaurant, this hidden basement has been exclusively done out with a marble staircase, assorted antique mirrors, rich colours and even a stuffed wolf.
British beef from a local butcher rules on the menu, and the steaks are spot-on – cooked in the charcoal oven and served with triple-cooked chips. Otherwise treat yourself to roast pheasant breast
with devils on horseback, an Ox burger or seared cod with bacon and clams, before signing off with bitter chocolate mousse or caramelised rice pudding with boozy prunes. Service is slick and cool,
with low lights, loud music, craft beers and impeccable cocktails adding to the clubby vibe.
