Harden's survey result
“Paddy Byrne and chef Tom Gill have worked magic at this converted factory” – a “casual and pleasant” haunt set within a stage-whisper of Byrne’s legendary former venture, the Everyman, and benefitting from a not dissimilar formula of “cheap, tasty, Mediterranean-style” small plates and full meals. “The wine is drinkable and fairly priced, the ambience is cheerful – what’s not to like?”
“Paddy (Byrne) goes from strength to strength” at this “little gem” – a “good approximation of the original Everyman bistro, run by the original owner, and just next door”. While the excellent “buzz” is similar, he “has really improved the food” – “quirky” small plates offering “quality but without the fuss” – and this time there’s a garden too.
“Paddy Byrne has triumphed with this re-incarnation of the Everyman Bistro”, located “next door to and in competition with the Everyman’s own refurbished premises”. The setting is an “interesting ’30s factory” and to eat there’s “all manner of lovely stuff”; there’s even a small garden.
