which opened early this year, is Ollie Dabbous’s second London restaurant but unlike Dabbous this one is a little more relaxed. Inside is small and simple with a menu to match, think comfort food, sharing dishes and a booze menu that features a quirky selection of shandies and shakes.

We finally got around to visiting and kicked things off with a fruity Hedgerow Shandy made up of pink grapefruit, tonic, sloe gin and wyld wood cider. It’s recommended that each person choose two meaty dishes and a side, of the bunch the meaty sausage roll coated in a thin pastry with homemade piccalilli was the clear winner.
