This gorgeous new bar is the perfect place for food and a catch-up

Ever met your friends for food then found you can't hear anyone's news over the music? Likewise, meeting for drinks and getting constantly jostled as you battle for a standing space with your mates.

If (like us) this type of night makes you want to stay at home on the sofa for the rest of your life, you will like Maddison's on High Street.

They've worked hard to create a chilled and welcoming place for food and a few drinks with your friends, without any of the NQ madness you expect in this part of town.

The décor has a Mediterranean-garden-at-dusk feel with olive trees, twinkly lights, and hanging vines. The music isn't too loud, and there's plenty of space for lounging, eating or exploring their cocktail list.

Meanwhile the menu is a mix of crowd-pleasing dishes, ranging from homemade ham hock terrine to salmon teriyaki to a classic Caesar salad. There are starters, desserts, sharing platters and bar snacks for those nights when you're in more of a grazing mood.

In other words, everything you need to keep a group of friends happy, whether you're gathering for lunch, dinner or drinks with food.
