Hanger & Cellar Fulham – Tasty Small Plates & The Best Sunday Roast in SW6
October 17, 2017
You may remember Luxuria Lifestyle’s fab review last year of Hanger SW6 in Fulham when it launched at the beginning of last year. (Read it again here to get a hold on just how how impressed we were with their charcoal-grilled hanger steak.)
With a revamped name and a cooler wine vibe to the basement, Hanger & Cellar is now the perfect place to enjoy no fuss food upstairs and delicious cocktails with a plethora of wine downstairs.
Diners can now graze on a new tasty small plates menu weekdays and weeknights, while the weekends now see the addition of brunch on Saturdays and Sunday Roast on Sundays – the best we’ve had in a longgggg time!
The décor still has that wonderful stripped back minimal feel to it courtesy of Nicola Harding Design. Clean lines, plenty of woods and whites – the laid back look means you can concentrate fully on the amazing dishes being brought out from the open kitchen, while the clever design means the restaurant looks great as it transitions from day to night time dining.
These new tasty plates are courtesy of new head chef Joe Whaley (ex L’Autre Pied and 28-50) and dishes are fresher than fresh and oozing with innovation and flavour. Check out the amazing smoked beef tartare (£7) for example – rare beef or course, with a Korean kick of kimchi – scallions, chilli, garlic and ginger. Cut into the perfectly cooked egg yolk on top and devour… We also fell in love with the truffle gnocchi gratin with pecorino at a very reasonably priced £5.50! This dish has so much flavour with the sharp salty pecorino, and the musky garlicy truffle. The gnocchi as you’d expect, was divine. There’s also a plump burrata pimped up with a confit of citrus (£7.50) and pigs head croquettes with lovage pesto (£6).
I was pleased to see that the charcoal-grilled hanger steak lives on, while the menu also now champions lesser used cuts like secreto iberico ( a tender pig shoulder cut) and classic steak favourites such as rare-breed sirloins and dry-aged cote de boeuf.
And now to Sunday lunch – a fantastic value humongous £30 plate for two, with bottomless Malbec during your 90 minute sitting for just £20 per person. Trust us, this makes for the laziest, longest Sunday ever and you’ll be hard pushed to leave, as we were! Enjoy a generous slab of the mouthwatering carved hanger steak, with crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside dripping roast potatoes, oversized Yorkshire pud, creamy cauliflower cheese gratin, roasted veg, rich ox jus gravy and home made horse radish cream. If that hasn’t got your taste buds going then we don’t know what will! There was so much of this that I actually had to take a doggie bag home!
Just in time for winter, head down to the Cellar on chilly evenings to the cosy speakeasy stocked full of carefully chosen wines and look out for their special foodie events including food and wine pairing nights and cocktail masterclasses.
Our new favourite hangout for Sunday roast and sociable sharing plates. We suggest you don’t hanger around… get your table booked now.
