Cocktails, hearty comfort food and a warm welcome on Rose street.
There are, of course, plenty of pubs on Rose street to choose from, but Element feels a wee bit different. There’s a warm welcome in the lively bar, with a great gin selection and fresh herbs for cocktails. You can sample tasty bar snacks here or venture in to the brightly-lit restaurant behind, with its oversized armchairs and leather couches. Starters are a cut above average; try West coast mussels in a warming Thai broth or caramelised chicory tart with pear, a blue cheese bonbon and a punchy pickled walnut vinaigrette. Mains feature pub classics alongside seasonal dishes like ox cheek with horseradish mash or sweet potato gnocchi. Portions are generous and puddings especially so (if you make it that far). Brunch is available daily with inventive vegan choices and there’s a popular Sunday roast. With reasonably priced drinks and a friendly vibe, Element is worth a try.
