Hill & Szrok Master Butcher & Cookshop
Pulling off the butcher by day/‘cookshop’ by night transformation is not an easy feat, but visiting Hill & Szrok after dark is a pleasant surprise. Enter the intimate space and you’re greeted by a large marble table set in the centre of the room, adorned with pretty table arrangements and flowers. You’d almost never know that this elegant communal table serves as the butcher’s block by day, aside from the hanging carcasses in the window, that is. The space is designed for convivial social eating and serves up hearty, flavoursome food for fans of unfussy sharing. The daily changing menu makes the most of overlooked meat cuts and ingredients, triumphing with a simple but no less tasty take on dishes like succulent braised ox cheek that almost melts off the fork and tender Southdown mutton cutlets. For drinks, pick from a comprehensive selection of European wines, which perfectly compliment the array of meaty dishes on offer.
