Time Out Says

Ok fine, we admit it, we’ve been regulars here for drinks since the cool venue first opened.

With its chic style, industrial theme and chilled vibe, it’s an ideal place for enjoying a relaxed drink, though admittedly it’s taken us a while to come and sample the food.

When we arrive on a Tuesday night the place is packed. It’s probably the busiest we’ve ever seen it and we’re happy to have booked in advance.

It turns out it’s ladies’ night but we’re more interested in a good feed. The menu is packed with all the dishes you’d expect to see in a good gastropub, from bangers and mash and fish and chips, to towering burgers and steaks.

While we’d normally happily polish off any of the aforementioned dishes, we decide to try something a little different. To start, we share the Scotch egg, because, why not? The large golden orb boasts a picturesque runny yolk when cut in half and we can’t get enough of it. We also destroy a serving of deep-fried pickles with delight. Next up, we tackle the build-your-own mac ‘n’ cheese and ours, with the addition of beef brisket, is wonderfully satisfying.

We also sink our teeth into the kale and spinnach salad which is refreshingly light, packed with sweet and salty bursts from dates and feta.

We were already in love but now we’re now bordering on the infatuated. Hamilton’s, please stay in our lives.
