Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2014 edition.

The White Elephant, on the site of the former Merrylee Road Bar and Kitchen, is an all-round good-time kind of place. There is music, food and plenty of cocktails to enjoy on a Friday night. In short it is probably exactly the kind of place that is needed in this slightly overlooked neighbourhood of the Southside. The menu offers a lively mix of bistro favourites and seafood options, occasionally veering into more colourful territory. There is a joy about the place that is very appealing. The décor is playful and the social media pages promote the regular music nights and Sunday roasts. A welcome addition.

  • High point: Appealing atmosphere
  • Low point: À la carte on the pricier side
