The panelled ground-floor bar and mezzanine balcony of this smart Holborn pub always heave with a boisterous crew of suited-and-booted drinkers taking a lunch break or unwinding after a hard day in the office. The top-floor dining room is much more soberly turned-out, however, with a kitchen that constantly produces up-to-date, well-flavoured dishes with an eye on seasonal produce. Thus, a summery lunch starts with a pretty dish of confit Hampshire trout with mustard yogurt, cucumber and heritage radishes, before roast leg and braised shoulder of kid goat arrives in the company of peas, broad beans and gem lettuce. To finish, there's dark chocolate mousse with orange curd and salted chocolate crumble.
