Rabble Taphouse & Grill

'Rough luxe' uptown bar-brasserie attracting style-conscious office workers and party-goers with cocktails, beer from copper tanks and low, slow grills.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Once the home of city-centre stalwart Rick's, this classy bistro has been updated with a chic makeover which reaffirms its stone wall foundations while sprinkling the room with highlights of shiny copper lighting, tall tables and a few tasteful dining zones surrounding a stylish bar. Starters include monkfish scampi which evokes the aromas of a good chippy with a splendid pea and vinegar purée adding zest to three large chunks of breadcrumbed tail meat. The mild and creamy prawn risotto also hits home, laced with spring onion, crispy seaweed and occasional chilli hits. From the charcoal grill, a generous portion of ox cheek is rich and delicately seasoned on a bed of fluffy mash with a sharp juniper berry sauce, while coq au vin is bright and smoky, featuring button mushrooms and chunks of shredded pancetta. Grazers can also opt for a hearty sharing board where chilli brisket and sticky wings are escorted by fries, pork ribs and beer-braised onions. The funky bar serves a wide range of cocktails and quality beers, of which unpasteurised Staropramen straight from the brewery is a tasty thirst quencher.
