Best of British in a bustling eatery

A long pub-like room with an open kitchen at the back, this is a busy, high-decibel place with an easy-going, friendly and completely unpretentious vibe. The twice-daily-changing menu deals in quality produce where seasonality, sourcing and provenance are key. Intelligently simple, unfussy Brit fare with gutsy, big flavours is the kitchen's preference. Dishes are laid out in ascending price order, so mix-and-match with small plates – warm black pudding with Alsace bacon salad and a poached egg, say – and larger dishes like roast cod with caponata, or cold roast pork shoulder with chips, green beans and anchoïade. Pudding stick to the no-nonsense theme with rhubarb and almond tart with clotted cream.
