Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Beer aficionados will love the daily draught list of keg and cask at Crossing the Rubicon, featuring the likes of Drygate, Williams Bros. and Pilot, while those not so well versed in hop talk will appreciate the glossary of terminology. The food menu showcases Indian small plates designed for tearing and sharing, with curries, bites, breads and sides. An ox cheek bhuna, served in a classic enamel camping mug, has a rich, red wine flavour with tender pieces of beef, a vegan chana madras is bursting with firm spicy chickpeas and herby garlic naan is handmade on site in their tandoor. The whimsical space features original art across the walls and plenty of recycled items, including tables made of salvaged doors. Heated on-street seating, a great-value lunch deal and regular meet-the-brewers events are further reasons to bag a door in this enticing addition to Great Western Road's increasing pocket of bars.
