British pop playing in the background, a Gainsborough-style landscape painting, bottle green walls, brass and mahogany details everywhere you look… The bar from Breton-born Hyacinthe Lescoët (ex-Mary Celeste) and British-born Greg Inder (ex-Glass) ticks off all the boxes for a traditional English pub. On their seasonal menu, twelve brexciting cocktails go off the beaten path (€13), like this telluric Big In Japan, a sort of Dirty Martini with undergrowth flavors (gin infused with shiitake mushrooms + vermouth + Fino sherry + Aquavit), the very country Behind The Sun made with Pineau, scotch, cider, quince and lemon juices, or even the ultra-groovy Funk Attack, bringing together buttermilk and gin infused with kombu. Otherwise, for something a little sweeter, place your bets on the Agua de Jamaica with hibiscus, honey and verjus (€8). And don’t forget, if you’re feeling peckish, there are a few local specialties: meat pie, sausage rolls… from €8 to €16. // A.B.
