What's the draw
The sister to SheBu's resident independent music venue Bush Hall, this neighbourhood restaurant serves up hearty but artful British dishes at superb value, thanks to a two-tiered set menu.
What to drink
The cocktail list isn't huge, but there are some really creative and tasty drinks on there. We started off with a Mezcal Negroni – a smokier and sweeter twist on the classic serve built around the Mexican spirit, with Dolin rouge vermouth and Campari the proverbial rhythm section. There's a great craft beer list, too, with Meantime, London Fields and Beavertown representing London brewers.
What to eat
A reassuringly priced set menu is the way to go: either the à la carte menu (£21 for two course; £26 for three) or the alt-rock brasserie menu, for £15 and £19 respectively. We opted for the former, with crab and saffron garnishing lightly pan-fried gnocchi, and enjoyed a delicious duck breast, tender and exactly as pink in the centre as we'd hoped, with a moreish stilton and broccoli purée and selection of mushrooms as our main. Value like this is hard to find in and around central London – highly recommended.
Cocktails and three courses for two: around £60. 304 Uxbridge Road, London W12 7LJ; bushhalldining.co.uk
