SquareMeal Review of The Toy Shop Bar

Ken and Barbie; GI Joe; Chatty Cathy: that’s not the clientele at this new Opal Fruits-toned venue, but the kind of friends its target audience were asking Santa for a mere 20 years ago. Pile in with your playmates for ‘fun and thrills’, plus an array of exotic drinks you never got at kindergarten. Despite their daft names and tuck shop garnishes, The Toy Shop’s cocktails are no pre-school lightweights: try Play-Doh milk punch, Ralph the robot or woolly-willy cup (Amer Picon bitters, Martini Rosato, ginger ale, mint and berries). There’s a concise selection of wines and Prosecco on draught, while food ranges from BBQ ‘banquets’ for two (£40) to tapas-sized plates of braised ham hock, crab croquettes and Stinking Bishop cheese soufflé. There’s even a Toy Shop picnic – should you fancy going down to the woods today.
