A buzzy bar with a lot to offer, Treacle’s creative cocktails and menus inspired by the east rarely disappoint.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Broughton Street boasts more than its fair share of good eating and drinking establishments and a recently refurbed and refreshed Treacle continues to hold its own as one of the most popular. Cocktails with tongue-in-cheek monikers pack a flavoursome punch, with the likes of fresh tarragon, curry leaf and celery bitters cropping up in the mix. Far-flung influences dominate the menu, from banh mi and nasi goreng to pho and poke. Ingredients like grapefruit dust and massaged kale are amusing if nothing else, but the combinations – like hot-smoked salmon, watermelon, red chilli and lime – really work, while veggies and vegans are catered for with tasty offerings like squash rojak. From brunch to late-night beats the friendly team manage day’s transitions well, making this a great spot to catch up whatever the time.
