Eating & Drinking Guide

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

As soon as you walk in to the softly lit interior of The Spanish Butcher, which resembles (in the best possible way) a restaurant Mad Men's Don Draper might frequent, you know you are in for a sophisticated dining experience. Specialising in cuts of Galician beef, imported from Spain and dry-aged for a minimum of 35 days, the prices can be on the high side. If you are on a budget, the thoughtfully-crafted set lunch/pre-theatre menu is priced at £17 for two courses, or £21 for three. Sides cost extra, but £4 for manchego truffle fries is money well spent. Try the light starter of pickled beetroot with radish, payoyo cheese, rainbow chard and toasted pistachio. The fillet burger is filling and tender but let down by a slightly soggy bun. By far the highlight of this set menu is the chocolate and olive oil mousse, which comes in a rich, thick dollop topped with toffee and almond bizcocho. There are numerous other deals available including ‘Galician Sunday’ which offers a roast rump of beef for two for £42, including appetisers.
