Legendary rock venue with good-value lunches and early dining.
Low-key lunch by day, iconic rock by night: was there ever such a drastic reinvention since Dylan went electric? Luckily, the food is no difficult second album so similar controversy is unlikely. Two mains for £12 through the week would make a goth grin from ear to ear and when it’s meatball fettucine in sweet tomato sauce, that's even better. Homemade veggie soup changes daily, while the burger buns come from just along the street at neighbouring bakery Seb and Mili’s – that’s local sourcing for you. By night, the bar feels like an entirely different beast when throngs of gig-goers pack the tables enjoying a West-brewed King Tut’s lager en route to the infamously intimate live venue upstairs.
