There's certainly plenty to gawp at inside this Kilburn High Road boozer - from a flock of hanging birdcages to baroque sofas seating, a wall of Victorian mirrors, dangling pink flamingos by the door and badgers replacing family members in a wall-hogging Edwardian portrait. You might have seen it all before, but it's artfully done.
It's an adventurous drinks list. Cocktails include a jammy dodger (Absolut raspberry vodka, Tuaca, raspberry jam, egg white, lemon and gomme syrup), a blueberry amaretto sour and a 'jaffa' - a mix of Sailor Jerry, Kahlua, chocolate liqueur, triple sec, egg white, orange marmalade, lime and a floating Jaffa Cake garnish. They're served in teacups, or teapots to share.
There's enterprise in the food, too. Dishes range from crowd-pleasing breakfasts, burgers, pizzas and pasta to an a la carte offering of oysters served with edible margarita, a deconstructed veggie Wellington, racks of venison marinated with elderberry, and saffron-marinated halibut served with wasabi, avocado, molecular tomato and goat's cheese cannelloni.
