Mac and Wild is one of the few restaraunts where actually you can beleive the hype. It is gorgeous inside with huge attention to detail throughout. the food is incredible (veni-moo burger is as good as everyone says!) and the staff are friendly and helpful. Their bottemless brunch was excellent and I'll definitely be returning!

My husband and I booked a table for his birthday using one of the recent Time Out offers for a burger with fries and a beer/prosecco. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the food was incredibly tasty. We didn't see a price list for the regular menu due to the Time Out voucher providing all details of our order. Nice place, a little corporate for a weekday lunch (diners nearly all business lunches) but enjoyable nonetheless.

I said I was going on a detox and diet when I get back, but what's one of the first things I do? Go for bottomless brunch of course!

The Scottish breakfast was... different. The square sausage was a bit tough and I wasn't keen on the black pudding but everything else was ok. Of course I had to try the haggis mac and cheese AND the haggis scotch egg! So much food! But I expected more from the mac and cheese. It wasn't cheesy or creamy enough and the scotch egg was ok I suppose, if you like haggis... Staff were great though.

As for the bottomless drinks part... I can't remember how many I had but I definitely got my money's worth - so much for the detox!😂

Wheelchair access: They did have a lift to get in, but it wasn't obvious where it was, and I called many times and couldn't get an answer. When we finally made it in, it was fine. They did have accessible toilets, but it was used as a storage room with a big TV on a stand in there *tut tut*

Mac and wild in Devonshire square is famous for its game food but the truth is that its outdoor bar is great for those summer evenings when you can get two pints or prosecco for the price of one (ok slightly overpriced if it was one but for two is good). Too good to be true? Absolutely. Go check for yourselves. It has been the absolute spot for after work drinks or leaving drinks and the place is lovely. It feels like outdoors but the top of the square is covered. Brunch looks like a must-do so it is on my list!

This Scottish restaurant is definitely not for the veggies, but an ideal hide out if you’re partial to shot guns, whisky or anything wild. With a permanent restaurant in Fitzrovia, Mac & Wild have opened a winter pop-up in Devonshire Square in the City with its own gun room if you fancy some virtual shooting in the Highlands!


Wild venison and game feature heavily on the menu and the waiter did an impressive sales pitch from the off, “you’ll need at least three visits- one for the famous Veni-Moo burger, another for the pheasant and a last one for the chateaubriand!” There’s also a curious selection of “Wee Plates” including haggis pops, a venison Scotch egg and beer sticks (aka posh Peperamis).


We decided to go all out with the £13/100g beef chateaubriand, but it took us a little while to notice the available weights written on a mirror on one side of the restaurant and the smaller cuts had already sold out during our menu mulling! The pressure was on! Our waiter suggested 750g between three would be enough, so we rushed him over to cross off the last of the smaller weights, giving us a 760g portion.


While the venison Scotch egg was a great start to the meal with a super crispy shell and runny yolk, the chateaubriand was sadly average at best. From when it arrived to the table, I could see the specks of gristle throughout and it really wasn’t as I expected, especially for such a premium cut of beef. It paled in comparison to the last chateaubriand I had at Bob Bob Ricard and honestly, I’ve enjoyed a home-cooked rib eye a lot more! The other disappointment were the hand-cut chips, which were tasty, but served in peculiar portions... it looked as though the waiter may have stolen a handful before serving them! The bone marrow gravy (served in the BEST cow gravy boat) on the other hand, was rich and syrupy, a plus point on the main and definitely the sauce of choice!


I would go back for the Scotch egg and maybe to try the pheasant, but I wouldn’t recommend this as a steak place.
