Another outpost for Sir Terence Conran's very British gastropub brand opens on the former site of Turnmills nightclub in Clerkenwell (next door to Jason Atherton's izakaya Sosharu). The venue comes complete with pie room, as well as a restaurant and bar, shop, cheese room and raw bar.
Harden's survey result
“Possibly a bit bland” sums up the lukewarm reactions to Sir Terence Conran’s trio of “un-memorable” all-day pit stops in Bankside, Clerkenwell and Shoreditch. They are “light, clean and smart”, so make “a good alternative for business meetings”, but it’s “difficult to be fantastically enthusiastic” about the “reasonably average and slightly expensive” food and “sometimes erratic” service.
