Hidden-away tiny speakeasy specialising in cocktails.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

The concept of a speakeasy bar has unfortunately become synonymous with theme: curly moustaches and bartenders festooned in pinstripes, braces and sleeve garters. But Bullard and Worth is a speakeasy distilled to its purest form. Keen to avoid the traps, owner Jason Cormack favours exclusivity, word of mouth and a closed door policy. Taking inspiration from the neighbourhood bar scene of Europe’s coolest cities, there’s an intimate vibe that oozes cool and a no-shake policy that means a relaxed environment conducive to sparkling conversation. There's a list of six interesting cocktails, including Jennie's Affections, which is made with spiced charred pepper syrup. Staff are attentive and know their stuff, interiors are suitably dark and moody, and Bullard and Worth is an oasis of cocktail calm – if you’re lucky enough to get a table.
