The food: Modern Irish
The latest incarnation of longstanding Locks, from Paul McNamara and Conor O'Dowd, is widely said to be its best yet. Modern Irish cooking with a focus on great Irish ingredients, and an interesting, thoughtfully chosen wine list with a slant towards Portugal. The tables at the window overlooking the canal are the best seats in a stunning dining room.
