Eating & Drinking Guide

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

This Bath Street institution has had a makeover and now boasts a shiny new gantry, lighting, DJ booth and sound system. Whether you visit on Kentucky Thursday, Dog Friday or T-Bone Sunday, you're guaranteed a bargain. The Mad Chef dishes up dogs, burgers and street eats, with spicy Irn-Bru sauce and Buckfast ice cream adding Scottish flare, and a genuine passion for exciting veggie and vegan cooking. The Not Dog, made with lentils, butternut squash and chickpeas topped with avocado cheese sauce, apricots and walnuts is an inspired mix of textures and flavours. A Vladimir Poutine with peppercorn sauce and cubes of Scottish cheddar is a decadent side that avoids the sloppiness common with poutine. With a great selection of canned craft beer, indulgent takes on classic cocktails and Prosecco on promo, as well as a programme of live music and club nights, Bloc+ has all the elements you'd expect from an institution.
