The Pig & Butcher
80 Liverpool Road, London N1 0QD
Latest critic review: September 05, 2012
Critics' score: 8 out of 10

This is the third gastropub from the people behind the Lady Ottoline and the Princess of Shoreditch. It's taken over the place of the former Islington Tap and will be making rustic food with freshly sourced meat and fish while making plenty use of its wood-fired oven. In the kitchen is Swedish chef Robbin Holmgren whose had stints at St John and St John Bread & Wine and has also run supperclubs with the Clove Club (who now co-run the Ten Bells).

"Does London need another gastropub? Before eating at The Pig and Butcher, I’d have sighed a weary “no”. It convinced me otherwise. This is food worth getting fat for: I’ll be back — just as soon as the soup days are over." READ REVIEW

"...the steak is almost unimprovably delicious; and the double-dipped chips come with an excellent parsley sauce whose constituents – parsley, spring onions, cornichons, capers, and Dijon – culminate in a hummus-like texture." READ REVIEW

"...we shared a couple of the smaller dishes, as well as a definitely non-meaty plate of lentils, green beans and croûtons, and all were excellent." READ REVIEW
