Adam Handling’s first venture outside London is a delightfully intimate pub-with-rooms, designed for and named after its two co-chef proprietors. The focus: classic and simple British dishes, but with added refinement, luxury and sustainability.
The rooms have been designed with the same principles in mind, but never sacrificing comfort. The carefully put-together suite uses texture and soothing shades of green to generate rustic sophistication. The brass fittings and freestanding bathtub are lavish nice touches.
Of course, the food is the main attraction. With a changing menu, a lauded Sunday dinner, and gastro ‘packages’, there is no lack of variety — there are plenty of opportunities to satiate your taste buds. To dial up your culinary experience, private dining is available, and comes with a personal chef.
This isn’t a traditional pub-with-rooms, although the beer garden and Tudor façade may fool you: it’s a heightened experience.
