    Time Out Says…

    The original 'Smiths' of Smithfield is across the road from the titular meat market in Farringdon. This Cannon Street branch may be a junior version, but the fabulous, top-quality meat remains. The aroma of charred, meaty goodness hit me as soon as I walked through the venue’s brawny, pop-style bar and into the classier restaurant. Getting the steak here is a no-brainer – there are nine cuts to choose from, including a 12-ounce, 30-day-aged chunk of rump. It was paired with a tangy wild salad and the best chunky chips I’ve had in ages. Spinach, nicely heated with a liberal seasoning of chilli and garlic, was a great side to round it all off.

    Square Meal Says…

    Brisk and businesslike, Smith’s of Smithfield’s new all-day offshoot faces Cannon Street Station – making it handy for a swift half before braving the 18.50 to Orpington. Communal tables in the prosaic refectory-like room are where to park up for breakfast, lunchtime burgers and salads or, come evening, savoury croquettes with cocktails such as East London Martini, vodka-laced Beer Ice Tea and Rum Falernum. To the rear, a bright blonde 1950s-style diner serves an appetising British and European menu. Start with gin and peppercorn-cured smoked salmon, or pumpkin and sage ravioli with amaretti biscuit butter. Mains include fish of the day, Jerusalem artichoke and ricotta pithivier, as well as Smith’s trademark house-butchered steaks. Follow with after-dinner cocktails such as Patrón XO-based ‘Tiramisu’.
