BIG NEWS: Noble Rot, one of London’s best wine bars is opening in Soho in early 2020. This would be big news in itself but it’s especially interesting that Mark Andrew and Dan Keeling are taking over the much loved Gay Hussar Site, which opened in 1953 but sadly closed in 2018. The place was notorious as a hangout for politicians, writers and other colourful characters in its heyday so it will be a relief to many that the site has fallen into such good hands.

There aren’t many more details at this stage but The Sportsman’s Stephen Harris is on board again, along with chef Paul Weaver. They won’t be re-creating the Hungarian menu of the Gay Hussar but there’s likely to be the odd reference in there. Other than that we can expect the same great food as at the original Noble Rot, and it goes without saying that the wine list will be impeccable. We’re very much looking forward to this one.
