Barbecue
DEXTER is a no rules approach to American BBQ brought to you by Adam Goldblatt, Sam and Tom Peasnell. Our meatery features the best Australian produce which is treated the right way. Chefs Tom (Pitt Cue Co, London) and Adam (Homeslice, London) pay homage to the low and slow traditions of American BBQ utilising smoking, chargrill techniques and pair this with flavours from Mexico, China, France and alike. The philosophy is a meat first approach, where a dish is formulated from the unique characteristics of the meat (or vegetable) for a truly unique meat experience. Think salted caramel ribs, hot meat donuts and dry aged Ribeye's.

    Tasty food. Large portions easily shared for a cheaper meal. Please consider putting on more wines by the glass. Limited options. I'd happily pay more for a better wine.

    Very hospitable. Great food and ambience. Portion sizes are just right for a single person when it comes to the smoked beef brisket.

    Amazing food cooked extremely well only negative was the burger there was no suggestion the beef burger was spicy and unfortunately it was ordered by our daughter inlaw who just can not do spice at any level. The steak was fantastic and the brisk was so good, we are definitely going back will just be dodging the burger next time. otherwise 5/5
