It's not often that I venture over to the city for food even with all the great choices of restaurants in the area, but I am so glad I made it to The Drift for lunch. I had a gorgeous meal from their Autumn menu, and I left completely content.
The Drift is a stunning bar in Liverpool Street, with floor to ceiling windows and just oozes with city chic. I love everything about the decor, the rustic mixed with concrete decor is so stylish and it certainly fits in well with the business district. Drinks and casual lunches can be had downstairs, whilst their upstairs dining area is great for more formal meals.
Being a bar in the city, I was pleasantly surprised at how accommodating they were for mums with babies like myself and my friend. There's a lift going up to the 1st floor, so no struggle there with a pram and they have highchairs on request too. Excellent.
Cod is not an exciting fish to cook, but they managed to turn this into a highly memorable dish. The skin was perfectly crispy and the flesh just cooked so it was silky and flakey. The brown shrimps added so much umami to the cod and along with the salty, buttery, garlicky and parsley mash, everything complimented each other so well.
I had such a delicious lunch here, and looking at the rest of the menu, there's other dishes I would love to come back and try. Food, atmosphere and service was brilliant and I am pleased to have enjoyed such a good British menu.
Will you guys be heading to The Drift for their delicious Autumn menu?
