Meat meets fire in an Islington pub

One of the pubs in the Noble Inns group, the Smokehouse is an old Islington boozer reborn as a temple to the elemental, Fred Flintstone principle of subjecting hunks of meat to fire and wood-smoke. In the yard are three giant smokers, and global culinary influences add punch, fire and spice. Salmon accra fritters with fennel and saffron aïoli opens the show with a blast of smokiness, followed by a comforting plate of smoked lamb shoulder with polenta, raclette cheese and sambal. For pudding, there's Double D tart (think Double Decker chocolate bar). An extensive list of craft beers seals the deal.
