Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Step out of Patrick and into a kitschy slice of the South Pacific. If the puffer fish lights, Hawaiian print chairs and assorted masks don't transport you to Tiki paradise, the cocktails will. Choose a classic rum drink served in a Tiki Mug (made by Gernet McCulloch at Fireworks Studio) or name your prefered spirit and the passionate bartenders will whip you up a recommendation. The food menu is divided into Mexican dishes, authentic Thai curries and American burgers. Generous Baja fish tacos are really fresh, with lightly battered haddock fillet goujons and cool salsa. The burgers boast luxurious topping combos – the umani beef burger, cooked on a flame chargrill, combines truffled portobello mushrooms, smoked gouda cheese and sun-dried tomato confit. Or you can pimp your own with satay sauce or mac and cheese. A popular Wednesday live music night, the Rum Sessions, completes the holiday vibe.
