If we were going magic you into Scully, or transport you there with a pillowcase on your head, the likelihood is you’d assume we’d taken you to the depths of Hackney or Peckham. It ticks all the boxes for fun and funky London dining: small plates, casual counter seating, shelves stacked with mysterious fermenting jars. The fact that it’s in the heart of establishment St James’s, slap-bang in the middle of zone 1, is kind of jaw-dropping. The food is too. Taking inspiration from everywhere in Europe, and beyond, this place might give you a spiced chickpea snack that you’ll that you’ll wonder why you can’t get at every bar in London, followed by a short rib croquette that you will want to eat every day, and a fresh tomato salad served in a sauce that will make you want to lick your plate clean. Book ahead and come with your crew, because you’ll want to try everything.
