Chimney House

28 Upper Hamilton Road



This almost rustic hilltop hostelry just off Seven Dials offers wooden floors, flowers and  a food list that shouts out well-sourced and home-made. If you get a taste for their own jams, chutneys and sourdough bread you can even take home; order in advance for the sourdough. The food served in the restaurant is indefatigably inventive, especially for the small dishes – appetisers of crispy caragheen and sour cream or a starter of cured cod, sloes, buttermilk and hogweed seed. Sunday roasts are more traditional but the raw materials are just as impeccably sourced. Meat comes from Garlic Wood Farm and the Silverside of Beef is 35 day aged; that costs a reasonable £13, for 50p less there’s Pork Belly with crackling and apple sauce and Roast Chicken.
