The Adam & Eve
Tucked away behind Oxford Street, this modern pub and kitchen has long been a little retreat for shoppers in the know. Get the right table and you can even sit under the watchful gaze of Michael Caine and Twiggy, stuck to the wall in poster form. The food menu comprises plates of poshed-up pub grub. That means apple-glazed gammon with fried duck egg and hand-cut chips, macaroni cheese croquettes, courgette fries with a red leicester fondue, pork crackling with apple cider sauce and a decent looking cheeseburger with fries, pickles and relish. The drinks list ranges from jugs of Pimm's and bloody marys to craft beers from Pressure Drop and Kernel and a selection of wines that leans heavily on the old world.
