Summary

“Fabulous olde English food”“game, pies, Scotch eggs, jugged hares, trotters”“in a bustling modern setting” gives this gastropub near the Barbican a real edge. “We put up with the noise and over-stretched service for the sheer variety of game in season”, and “their own-brand beer is too damn good!”.

Summary

“A meat-eater’s delight” – this “quirky” City-fringe gastropub serves “proper British food” and “they know their game here” (as the “animals hanging in the window” hint). It’s “always busy” and “noisy” and as a result service can be “perfunctory”.
