Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Formerly Steak on Stones this place has undergone not just a name change but also a change of menu and ethos. The lights have been dimmed, music set to lounge and the atmosphere is now one of sophisticated relaxation. Its shtick used to be cooking your own meat on a lava stone, and while the option is still available, you can now order your steak grilled by a professional too. The food differs its sister restaurant next door by offering cheaper cuts of meat; a tender fillet tail rather than fillet steak, chuck eye rather than rib, and the knowledgeable staff helpfully explain the different tastes and textures. There are also a few exotic meats such as kangaroo and wild boar. Starters range from seafood to a meat platter featuring peppery black pudding and venison chorizo. Puddings are elegantly presented – a lemon cheesecake is light and zesty, however the panacotta is a little too solid. There’s an impressive cocktail list too, with the added bonus of decent mocktails.
