Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The Kitsch Inn is a lesson in quirky but elegant décor. Spread over two large rooms separated by an archway, the dining room is a deep teal colour which shows off the immaculate original cornicing. On the other side – in an area painted a rich 1960s’ orange – bartenders shake up a tropical selection of cocktails from a list devised by the mixologists in the associated Tiki Bar downstairs. Not that patrons would have any idea, the restaurant has maintains a subdued atmosphere despite the lively bar beneath. Booth seating in geometric prints sets the tone for Kitsch Inn’s mid-century modern interiors. Pulled together with skilfully mismatched kitsch stylings – a starburst clock, retro bowling pins, framed sports memorabilia, the restaurant is worth a visit for the décor alone. The Thai menu is similarly accomplished but treads a more familiar track. Very good versions of pad Thai, green curry and chicken with chilli jam are available. Sharing platters also give a good indication of the varied prowess of the chefs at work. Vegetable tempura is delicately battered and crunchy and salads judiciously dressed.
