The Church Street Social

  What are the things you look for in a good pub? a)  Alcohol (obviously) and great food b) Reasonable pricing c)  Fabulous ambience A place that promises to become one of the hottest places in town in no time, The Church Street Social scores highly on each of these parameters. Social The spacious ambience is unlike any other we?ve seen. The look is cozy yet quirky?painted gunny sacks form pillows, the cutlery holder is fashioned from wooden rulers and the menu looks like a tabloid newspaper. The devil is in the detail! A special word for the smiling staff who made us feel very welcome. We ate: We started off with the BBQ board ? generous helpings of hot wings, potato skins, ribs, sausages with hickory smoked The Banoffee Cronutsauce. Not bad, but not as good as some of the other dishes on the menu (as we would soon discover). We followed this up with an order of Fully Loaded Nachos (slightly disappointing) and Crispy Sesame Honey Chilli Fries (we loved this interesting take on good ?ol fries). Those looking for something to go with their drinks should opt for the Chakhna ?Bitings? Tiffin?which is served in an actual tiffin box!  For the main course, we ordered the OMG Burger (Perfectly cooked tenderloin patties with sausages and fried egg?perfect for when you really want to indulge) and the Southern Fried Chicken Burger (Crumb friend marinated chicken thighs?again, very good indeed.)   However full you may be, don?t miss the desserts at Social. We ordered the Banoffee Cronut (not quite a proper cronut, but delicious all the same), the Layer Cake (a chocolate-lovers cream!) and the delightfully named Ramesh and Suresh (Deep fried Five Star and Fruit and Nut chocolates with hot fudge?a must have for the adventurous foodie!) We drank:   Where Social scores very highly is the variety of cocktails on its menu.  From the presentation to the naming, Beereverything is so very clever indeed. We were impressed, and how! The Longest Long Island Ice Tea gets full marks for innovativeness and is perfect for several people to share. Coke & Cane is a must-have for rum lovers (again, we loved the presentation) and the Hot Shoddy (Brandy with a hint of honey and cinnamon, served warm) is absolutely delicious. Pink Floyd lovers will be delighted to find a cocktail named ?Two Lost Souls Swimming in a Fish Bowl.? The South Pacific Rim brings alive the tropical experience?and was our favourite drink of the night. Our verdict: Happily stuffed and satisfied, we left The Church Street Social feeling wonderful about life. We love this place. You?ll see us back there next Friday! https://www.facebook.com/SocialOffline?fref=ts&rf=648786195193575
