Anthony Demetre, the chef behind the now closed Arbutus and the newly Michelin-starred Wild Honey 2.0, has consulted on the menu at The Crossing in Barnes alongside head chef Alessandro Carulli following a refurb by new owner Christian Arden. The Crossing has a great wine list, a cut above what you’d usually find in a pub. We can especially recommend the English fizz, sparkling rose brut from Ambriel in West Sussex, and the Château Penin Merlot for your roast beef (if that’s what you’re having). On the Sunday food menu there’s some crossover with the dishes that feature on the main menu during the week plus roasts of course. And on those roasts, we loved the 48 day-aged beef sirloin and the porchetta, which both came with roasted carrots, cabbage, gravy, Yorkshire pudding and – controversially – pommes anna. Purists may balk at the sidelining of roast potatoes, but we thought it actually made a nice change and pommes anna surely isn’t too far behind in the potato dish league table.
