When most diners think of the Michelin Guide, tiny portions and eye-wateringly expensive menus might come to mind. But that’s certainly not the case at Mac & Wild. Formed by two Scottish lads, Andy ‘Wild’ Waugh and Calum ‘Mac’ Mackinnon, their rustic, hearty Scottish dishes will satisfy the greatest appetites. Their impressive restaurant, relaxed ambiance and generous portions make them one of the best London restaurants for dining out with a difference.
At less than a five-minute walk from Liverpool Street train and tube stations, Mac & Wild is one of the most conveniently located places to dine out in London for busy locals. Visitors to the bustling city will also find it near attractions such as the iconic Ten Bells pub, Whitechapel Gallery and the towering Gherkin. And with Old Spitalfields Market within easy reach, it’s the perfect way to end a day of bargain hunting.
As traditional restaurants in London go, Mac & Wild is tailor-made for special occasions, date nights and dinner parties. It features a grand traditional style, original features and a laidback feel that makes it feel down-to-earth. High ceilings make it feel spacious and airy, while light shades crafted from crystal decanters hint at their impressive collection of Scottish whiskies behind the bar.
With fresh fish, meats and produce sourced from Peterhead to Edinburgh and everywhere in between, diners can expect one of the most innovative Scottish restaurant menus around. Burger lovers won’t want to miss their award-winning Veni-Moo, featuring venison and beef patties. Or there’s seasonal options like the classic ribeye, indulgent smoked Balvenie smoked salmon served on sourdough toast and deep-fried haggis pops.
Redefining Scottish cuisine one Cullen Skink and Scotch egg at a time, a trip to Mac & Wild is sure to be a memorable experience. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can enjoy exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves with another round of drinks, a side of haggis mac ‘n’ cheese or that tempting tomahawk steak.
