Once a secret hideaway of the stars, Sidedoor was converted in 1963 and has since been a popular, family-owned and operated English gastropub. The menu at the cozy eatery includes a selection of cheeses, cured meats and sandwiches, along with traditional Cornish pasties and a number of craft and local beers. For brunch, be sure to try the fried chicken and buttermilk waffle dish or the flavorful prime rib sandwich.
This gastropub has its own secret entrance off Poppy Street under a big, red key. Once you enter, you'll be transported back to old England with fireplaces, exposed beams, and appropriate art on the walls. Everything's meant for sharing, but highlights include the Fish & Chips and Prime Rib Chili, as well as their beer and cheese selections. For something you won’t find in a British pub, the menu also offers decadent dishes such as the Uni Pasta with lobster and urchin butter, or a cut of Lawry’s Prime Beef Ribs served with Yorkshire pudding and creamed horseradish. Be sure to save room for dessert, specifically the Dark Chocolate Souffle.
How to book: Walk-ins welcome, order online for takeout or delivery.
