    This was one of the most fun meal experiences we’ve had for some time. You enter the restaurant by going into the street level bar and bakery area which looks like it used to be the loading area for the restaurant building which is up a short set of stairs. The restaurant used to be a former smoke house. Decor is minimal, not in the interior designer sort of way, but simply non-existent. The walls are painted white and lined with pegs for coats. It was lightly misting the evening we went so lots of coats were hanging on the walls. There’s a small desk where you are greeted as you enter and a bar lines part of another wall, but otherwise, the place is one big room with a high ceiling and tall windows. Somewhere that I didn’t notice is a private dining room. The place was noisy but in a good way, full of energy and laughter. The servers are mostly young and very engaging.

    If you like pork then this is the place for you. I dont so i find it hard to write great things about it - but its pretty much snout to tail kind of dining - anything that can be done with pig is on the menu in this restaurant

    If you want to have a taste of what British cuisine is about, this is THE place to go. Authentic, understated, and utterly delicious. It's one of the few English restaurants in the World's top 50, but not absurdly priced.
