Press Food & Wine

The buzz hasn't faded at Press Food & Wine. Its upbeat take on neo-bistro dining - from serious meats from the wood grill, offal and French classics to raw fish options and a supreme beef burger - remains a crowd-pleaser two years after its impressive opening. Chic, casual décor sets the mood in twin dining areas: plush booths and a spectacular bar upstairs, and bench tables beside wood-panelled walls downstairs. Meat is the big attraction of the paddock-to-plate menu, from sweetbreads roasted with anise and honey, to tomahawk rib-eye steak, nicely pink ras el hanout lamb rump, or half a roasted Berkshire suckling pig that feeds 10 or more. A strong wine list spans the globe, from natural wines to older vintages, with impressive quality in the restaurant's own wines made by Steve Pannell. Befitting Press's bistro origins, its smart range of cheeses wins out over a dessert menu offering Eton mess and bombe Alaska.
