The list— No.
You’ll find nothing but cool, sleek and sophisticated gastropub dining at the Hero of Maida in London’s Maida Vale.
Previously listed on the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs list under its former name of the Truscott Arms, the Hero of Maida has undergone a swan-like transformation in under a year.
On entry you’ll be wowed by the Hero of Maida’s zinc-topped bar, which is lined with only the tastiest of tipples.
Leather banquette seating, antique mirrors and a host of other characterful interior decor awaits hungry diners – we told you it was sleek and sophisticated.
The bar and snack menu includes Welsh rarebit, sausage rolls, salads and cheeses to name but a few.
However, we know you’re interested in mouthwatering plates of deliciousness offered in the pub’s upstairs dining room.
You won’t be disappointed with the daily-changing menu created by chef director Henry Harris, who serves up the likes of grilled rabbit in mustard sauce with smoked bacon; rib eye steak with chips and bone marrow; and pan roast chicken with braised lettuce, morels and peas to name but three dishes.
If you’re part of the ultra-trendy Saturday brunch crowd then you’re in luck.
To accompany your Bloody or Virgin Mary (or Black Velvet) you can munch on oysters, field mushrooms on sourdough toast, pancakes with bacon and maple syrup or a host of other tempting plates.
That’s not all this eclectic London gastropub has to offer though. In fact, there are dozens of facets waiting to tickle and delight you, all of which we’ll let you discover on your own.
