A rock’n’roll beer hall has rum and ribs to boot

If you want to know about the food at the Beaufort, look no further than the truffled mac’n’cheese, with grated gruyère and a crushed Cheezel crumble. Yes, those nuclear orange puffs of nothing have been press-ganged into a trailer-trash garnish that actually works (salty! crunchy! cheesy!). Ike's Rack Shack, a one-eyed, bandana-wearing southern US barbecue with a Bowie knife in the belt, is the perfect dinner companion for the Beaufort’s dive-bar credentials. Even the pickles are deep fried and slathered in ranch sauce. The burnt end pies are exactly that (charry ends of the smoked meats in flash-fried pies). Hillbilly tacos – pulled beef short rib and gravy, zesty pineapple salsa salad – come on a slice of white sandwich bread while meats (maple glazed pork ribs; spiced lamb neck) are so big on the smoke you’ll be smelling it on your clothes for days.
