Lobster mac & cheese in Hackney

Offsetting its spartan finish of undecorated brick walls & wood floors, this Hackney Road place's food is not quite so plain: an all-day array including crab cake Benedict, lobster mac & cheese, and slow-braised ox cheeks in apricot stew, to accompany a short-but-sweet cocktail list including the apple brandy & grenadine Jack Rose, which you should definitely have on ice.
