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 current (2016) edition.

This sophisticated newcomer features elegant up-lit table tops, muted blue and cream tones and a grand piano. It’s impossible not to be transfixed by a gantry so big that staff require a ladder to navigate it. Unsurprisingly it contains a range of rare rums, gins and tequilas hard to surpass, while the luxurious menu – based on partnerships with quality Scottish suppliers – features venison, veal and rabbit. Dishes are exquisitely presented, skilfully executed and bursting with flavour, none more so than rabbit stuffed with langoustine. It shouldn’t work but does – brilliantly. If a digestif is required, perhaps after a rich osso buco with tender broad beans, splash out on 20-year-old El Dorado rum on the rocks. For those wishing to get up close and personal, there’s an innovative opportunity to book a private dining booth tucked into the corner, offering the chance to watch chefs at work.
