    There will always be reactionary types who'll hate the Clove Club, its tablecloth-free lack of schmooze, the "tyranny" of the no-choice menu. Their loss.

    Thin, silky raw scallop with crunchy hazelnut, clementine and Périgord truffle makes a heavenly follow-up, before dishes starring pollock and venison. Unlisted extras keep arriving, our favourite being a glass rinsed with 1908 Madeira and topped with duck consommé. A dessert of subtle pepper ice cream topped with a carbonated lemon mousse is zingy, fizzy, delightful. To accompany, we’d recommend the wine-pairing option. Food of such quality deserves it.
