Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Step down the stairs and behind the fortune-teller, back into a 1950s funfair complete with vintage cinema seating, booths and stools. Hoot the Redeemer is all about having fun – and cocktails. There’s a large menu of house cocktails but staff will also recommend something to suit your mood or prepare one of the classics, either as you like it or with a house twist. If that’s not your thing there are plenty of bottle and draft beers and wines. Boozy Capt’n Hoot slushies and alcoholic Senor Scoop ice-cream (both of which are available to take away) bring out the inner child. Or play Pinch’n Sip; use the claw crane to grab a ball with a flavour you like and the staff will mix up something just for you. Friday and Saturday night see the resident DJs play requests for the crowd.
