Best deals in town: #1, Steak Night, Colonel Fawcett


In which we roadtest the special offers kindest to your wallet



So what’s the deal? Two onglets, chips, a cute jug of jus, and a bottle of house red. A snip at £30 in total.

Any extras? Nope. If you want sides, they’re an additional £3.50 (although we can recommend the purple sprouting broccoli.)

Talk us through things. The meat is from leafy Dedham Vale, the crust nicely carbonised giving depth of flavour. Sliced chunkily, it’s on-point crimson, but not bloody, exactly as decent onglet should be. Oh, and the chips! Mis-shapen, twice-cooked and very dunkable in sauces of chimichurri and a lip-smacking bone marrow gravy (an additional £2, mind).

Busy? Yep. Every table was taken on our visit. But happily it wasn’t as heaving as the Fawcett gets on the weekend. And there’s a trad Irish live folk trio to help you digest, should you linger while polishing off your (perfectly acceptable) house Tempranillo.

When is it? Every Thursday, 530-930pm. They would probably advise you book.

What other nights are worth investigating? The Good Ship comedy nights (Mondays), just relocated from Kilburn.

Our rating: A very solid 8/10.
