Harden's says

A City branch for the pop-up-turned-permanent Scottish game specialists (all venison is 100% wild) - their burgers come highly recommended. Whisky, unsurprisingly, is also a speciality - other cocktails include an Irn Bru Daiquiri.

Owner's description

Mac & Wild, a wee slice of the Scottish Highlands.

We only use the best produce from the best suppliers. All of our game and venison is wild comes directly from Andy Waugh's (our owner and founder) family and our beef, salmon, seafood and potatoes come from friends we've grown up with.

We were born from a street food and pop up concept, Wild Game Co. Life began in 2009 with Andy selling raw meat at Broadway Market and was soon awarded the Young British Foodies Street Food Award.

Our success is all down to having great produce – we don’t cut any corners and this shines through the food on the plate.

We were voted as having the best burger in London before being voted as the No.1 burger in UK 2016.

We also have a very impressive whisky bar! With over 100 whiskies on the back bar there is always something to get excited about.

You can come in for one of our whisky sessions on the last Saturday of the month. We have a special speaker and 4 or 5 delicious drams followed by some food.

If you like to get out and about then you’ll love our monthly foraging trip. We go for a boozy walk around Finsbury Park before making our way back to the restaurant for brunch and cocktails.

“Venison cooked in a variety of ways” sits alongside Scottish shorthorn beef, oysters and salmon at this “passionate but unpretentious” Fitzrovia three-year-old, which also has a sibling at Devonshire Square, near Liverpool Street. Owner Andy Waugh’s Scottish family estate is the source for much of the produce.

“Really good venison” is the star turn at this Fitzrovia two-year-old specialising in Scottish game (much of it from the family estate of owner Andy Waugh), delivering “very tasty, gamey flavours for not terribly high prices”. Having started out as a street stall, the venture now has a second branch at Devonshire Square, near Liverpool Street.
