“Amazing” British game in season is the USP at this City boozer next to the Barbican, which makes for some “great gastro evenings”. This is supplemented in the off-season (so March to July) by spit-roasted whole suckling pig, rare-breed meat and wild fish and seafood. It’s also a useful pre- and post-show dining option for concert- and theatre-goers at the Barbican Centre, five minutes’ walk away.

This game-themed gastropub next to the Barbican has a solid following for its “excellent game and seriously good local produce” from an “interesting and well-executed menu”. Clearly, it’s best to come in game season (August-February), but at other times the kitchen gets by on rare-breed beef, goat and seafood options, and an “amazing Sunday roast – pricey but worth it”. Arguably, the interior “doesn’t lift the spirits, but there’s a sheer lack of decent alternatives around the Barbican”.

“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!”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
