The Lockhart Review

Last week The Handbook headed over to Marble Arch for a little bit of good old fashioned South Western American food at The Lockhart. We arrived as the restaurant was filling up, a few people at the bar and families and couples around the small white wooden tables which were adorned with mismatch crockery. The restaurant itself is minimal think exposed bricks and wooden floors- yet it is still cosy, with twinkling candles and warm soft lights. We snuck off downstairs to the bar, naturally, to start with cocktails. Forget sugary pinks and chemical greens these cocktails are all about […]
