The Wild Beer Co at Jessop House
This hip, laid-back joint specialises in serving craft beers and creative food. Set in a handsome Georgian townhouse, The Wild Beer Co at Jessop House boasts fantastic barrel-aged and wild fermented beer, in addition to a varied wine list, and a range of cocktails to delight even the most discerning connoisseur – their gin and tonic menu is a sight to behold.
With plenty of outdoor seating both at the front and rear of the building, plus dining areas on all three floors, there’s a cosy spot to suit all moods. When we popped in for a midweek bite to eat, we were impressed by the lively, warm atmosphere.
While the name suggests that The Wild Beer Co is all about their brews, they pour just as much love into the food they serve. We chose from the newly introduced small plates tapas menu, which is ideal for sharing. A helpful beer pairing suggestion alongside each dish made choosing from over 20 craft beers a little easier.
After much deliberating, we tucked into the noteworthy creamy truffle mac and cheese, crispy quesadillas served with sriracha mayo, and fi sh goujons accompanied by raw slaw and tartare sauce. I’ve got my eye on the incredible-sounding Canadian poutine (hand-cut chips with cheese curds, gravy and crispy chicken skin) for when I next I call in.
