On the site that was formerly The Rectory - and before that, The Calf - a fourth pub from the team behind Smokehouse, The Pig & Butcher and The Princess of Shoreditch; there's a daily changing menu and a sustainability-led approach here, with upcycled fixtures, an on-site butchery and drinks from small-batch UK producers.
Harden's survey result
“A great conversion of a big old pub in Clapham” – this November 2021 newcomer is the fourth site of the team behind Smokehouse, The Pig & Butcher and The Princess of Shoreditch. It’s a “stylish and high-spec” renovation to create a buzzy attractive space over two levels. The main area is “a bit of a noisy barn” – “the mezzanine (with views to the kitchen) is the more interesting/quieter area foodwise”. The menu has a sustainability focus (“the more ‘unfashionable’ meats: bone marrow, pig’s head, mutton”), but at the overview it “serves up really well-cooked British pub dining”.
For 32 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).
