Review on The Easton

Aussie boys Jeremy 'Zim' Sutton and Andrew Veevers have done great things at this reborn Clerkenwell boozer. You'd never guess that the old place had a seriously dodgy reputation as a strip joint and gangsters' hangout: these days it is all clean and tidy, with pretty retro wallpaper, chunky tables, lots of light and space and a general mood of easy-going bonhomie.

The menu is written on a blackboard behind the bar and it's a daily assortment of Zim Sutton's own ideas, based around keenly sourced ingredients. Emu sausages with champ, cavolo nero and pancetta gravy sounds typically 'down under', but the range is global: jerk-spiced pork belly is served with roast pumpkin and dill pilaff, duck is given Spanish treatment with smoked paprika, almonds, pears and celeriac purée, while seared tuna is jazzed up with Egyptian spices. There's usually just one dessert - perhaps baked white chocolate and goats' curd cheesecake with cinnamon apricots.

Friday night is frantic, so food is limited to tapas, while Sunday lunch brings a gargantuan traditional roast. Hard on the heels of The Easton, Messrs Sutton and Veers recently opened The Princess in Shoreditch.
