108 Fetter Lane, LONDON, EC4A 1ES
The panelled ground-floor bar and mezzanine balcony of this smart Holborn pub - sibling of The Gun - heave with a boisterous crew of suited-and-booted drinkers unwinding after a hard day in the office. The bar menu offers appealing contemporary gastropub fodder, but if you want to dine in more refined surroundings, the top-floor dining room is the place to go. It's a soberly turned-out space with windows on two sides, a mirrored ceiling, curvy leather seating, white linen-clad tables and a patterned-wood floor. The kitchen turns out appropriately up-to-date, well-flavoured dishes with an eye on presentation and seasonal produce. Thus, an autumnal dinner starts with artichoke and ceps velouté, poured at the table around a wild rabbit Scotch quail's egg, before Yorkshire red-legged partridge arrives in the company of chestnuts, chanterelles and game chips. To finish, there's damson soufflé with ginger and vanilla ice cream.
