This is a restaurant from the people behind The Lockhart, including the chef Brad McDonald. Expect lots of low-and-slow barbecue alongside a Southern USA style cocktail bar.

"And here’s the point, though I must admit what I dislike about all this sorry, open-mouthed finger-sucking lad food is that it’s not actually cooking at all, it’s hobby grub." READ REVIEW

"(The pig's ear was) a warmish, flabby bite at first, then sweetness, salt, spice, high allium notes, the crackle of cartilage, mild pigginess, chomp, chomp, chomp … And then suddenly I couldn’t write about it for the salivating that came upon me." READ REVIEW

"I loved Shotgun, as you'll have probably guessed by now; the food is mainly superb, the attention to detail occasionally startling, and service, headed by Jon Cannon ex- of l'Enclume, Roganic and Restaurant Story, is faultless." READ REVIEW

"Steer clear if you need elaborate cooking or a leisurely pace: snacks and mains arrive fast. And definitely avoid if you’re vegetarian. Everyone else should get to Shotgun like a gunshot." READ REVIEW
