Officially opening on 31st July, Nosh & Quaff is a lobster and beer restaurant and I already know it’ll be a real hit! With great beers on tap and a mouth watering menu, this place is spread over two floors in a beautiful old bank. The decor is industrial but stylish – and most importantly, they have the most comfortable chairs, make dining a lesiurely experience, unike some of the terrible BBQ chains out there with their cheap hard chairs! When you’re over 30, this kind of thing matters.
The menu is short and to the point – this is a burger and lobster restaurant so on the whole, thats what you can have. You’ll also find hot dogs, ribs and wings there – and everything (as you’d expect) is hand-made on site from fresh, organic ingredients. The lobster is fresh and succulent with a slight chargrill flavour, and a complete bargain at £20. The butter chive sauce accompanying it didn’t over power the flavour either – perfectly balanced.
The burger came pink and peppery. Delicious. The wings were juicy and full of flavour – I just love that southern style hot sauce. The beef ribs are as big as your face and don’t be ashamed to get food all over your face. This place is casual but don’t mistake it for fast food. The food is sky high good. Just served in a way designed to be fun to both eat and drink in. Don that apron and get stuck in.
We also enjoyed a range of sides – the mac and cheese came straight down from heaven and the blooming onion was just perfect for sticking in the middle of the table and sharing with friends. For now though, I’ll leave you to enjoy the food porn below. The pictures can do the talking.
That burger… oh wow!! So good we ordered another one before pudding. My friend Ahmed (UK Burger Battle king) was super impressed. Luckily the rest of us managed a bite too!
