Legendary rock venue with good-value lunches and early dining.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

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.

  • High point: Good-value mains
  • Low point: Service-station espresso
  • Notable dish: Beef and ale casserole
  • Average price: £6 (set lunch); £10.50 (dinner)
  • Provides: Outdoor tables, Free wi-fi
  • Music on stereo: Indie
  • Live entertainment: Gig venue upstairs. Regular acoustic sessions in bar, jazz quartet Saturday afternoon.
  • Capacity: 70
  • Largest group: 25
  • Open since: 1990
  • Number of wines sold by the glass: 7
  • House wine: £14 per bottle
