Review 2016/17

Frequently changing selection of classic French and Italian wines alongside plenty of quirkier picks (such as premium Moroccan Syrah, or dry Furmint from Hungary) at this lively Shoreditch venue, brought to you by Angela Hartnett and her partner Neil Borthwick (founder of ‘Canteen’). There is much to like about a list brightly divided by style, including ‘Fruit-ladden & Sunny’ and ‘Lively & Juicy’. Well executed dishes show a strong appreciation of texture, such as deep-fried oysters to begin, roast chicken replete with its broth, toasted almonds and a herb pesto to continue, and the brown bread parfait with spiced cherry compote to culminate. The spacious bar, complete with DJ, is a great place to drop in for enjoying a pick from a selection of 25 offered by the glass, or even a cocktail with attitude, such as the Bourbon-based ‘Go Hartnett Or Go Home’.
