"An old-established gastropub, food can sometimes be of a high standard, but, when full, too noisy for conversation, and service iffy"

"Excellent coffee, wine & ales pre cinema, or with the view over the Ouse any time. Such a eclectic mix of clientele."

"Inventive and interesting menu. Quite different than the average with the emphasis on offalbut plenty of other dishes too. Expertly cooked. Absolutely first class welcoming service from all staff. Decor very low key so good as it is perhaps not quite right for a special occasion. Many business lunches on the day we ate there and I'm not surprised. A great place for a different eating experience."

"An excellent lunch here at £28.12 including the 12.5% tip. A choice of three or four items all very well presented with many different elements on all three courses. Better than we have paid more for at some higher rated establishments. A fish had crispy skin but that had slightly overcooked it and some broccoli was also a touch over done, but overall highly recommended."

The Editors Review
RG5357-chilternfirehouse

Celeb chef du jour, Nuno Mendes, who closed Viajante last year and headed for Marylebone's über hot Chiltern Firehouse (pictured), has announced plans for a casual, new tavern in east London. Mendes, perhaps the first chef to put Bethnal Green on the culinary map with his tour-de-force restaurant at the Town Hall Hotel, will open Taberna do Mercado in Spitalfields Market later this year.

The 40-cover all-day venue will serve food and wine from Mendes’s native Portugal. A soft opening will take place 4-10 May with booking available from 29 April via http://www.tabernamercado.co.uk/.

Mendes himself will stay on as executive chef at American hotelier Andre Balazs's Chiltern Firehouse – which despite being a like a flame for celebrity moths was decidedly put in its place by our survey reporters who found the food a bit “meh” and the place itself full of “paparazzi and poseurs”.
