Sports, beer and diner favourites are all plentiful in this American-style canteen venue from the team behind Lebowskis.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Taking their passion for quality produce and on-trend drinks, the team behind Lebowskis and Porter & Rye have created a haven for sport, beer and the sort of food that any self-respecting diner will dig into sans cutlery. The menu is packed with American favourites, from sloppy burgers to topped dogs and sticky wings (in nine varieties) and ribs. There's plenty of flavour in the smoked beans-topped Dog, and sides such as eye-watering hot poppers are well worth adding to the order. Over 50 beers are on offer, along with a range of Boilermakers, allowing punters to try a half pint with a matching whisky. If that's not your thing, try a boozy milkshake – there's even a bacon-flavoured concoction. A glut of TV screens show all manner of sport, and you can even participate on one of the pool tables to the rear.
