Stonehaven's six°north bring their passion for Belgian craft beer and tapas-style bites to the capital

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

'The idea is to have fun, chat and imbibe,' says the menu and it’s a philosophy this craft brewery and bar does well, with its group-friendly leather booths, tapas-style bar bites and extensive drinks range. The onus here is on Belgian beer, though house brews are made in Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, located six degrees of latitude north of Belgium. Each table has a tome containing information on hundreds of beers, including their percentage, origin and what is available on draught. If you're firmly committed to millennial culture though, you can ask to view this list on your smartphone or one of the bar's own tablets. Beer fearers, needn't worry, however: there's also an impressive wine and spirits list, including over 20 varieties of gin. In a break with tradition, there's now no need to hit up the kebab shop after a few pints: the kitchen serves everything from scallops to steak, though the meat and cheese-filled sharing platter is the real star.
