Formerly Club Ego, more recently The Green Room pool hall, this arm of Hawke & Hunter/Mark Greenaway has now morphed into a steak house with ambitions – the club room downstairs will retain one of the pool tables and, funnily enough, host club nights whilst upstairs sees odd opening hours including dining til 3am on Saturdays when you’ll be in the company of a DJ and, according to our waitress, a burlesque dancer …
I opted for French Toast with fruit on Sunday past as I was feeling a bit delicate but the full menu (not it seems currently available on Sundays as they close at 6pm) looks interesting and the meat my companions did manage to order was keenly priced and cooked exactly as requested. None of them had any complaints about the food, additional sauces (many home-made and cutely packaged) or the Merlot they had to accompany it all.
Early days yet but generally this looks to be a venture with promise.
