Eating & Drinking Guide

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

This bar offers a reliable, attractively priced menu in a part of the city where quality is not always guaranteed, and situated just off the city’s busiest streets it’s popular as a break for weary shoppers and a stop-off for pre-club crowds. The comfortingly familiar range of bar bites, meals and snacks should satisfy most unassuming diners with homemade burgers and Cajun chicken quesadillas staving off the hunger pangs. The burgers are satisfyingly chunky patties with the lamb and mint and 100-percent beef original popular choices while the combo deals offer a chance to explore the menu.
