This new Dalston dining and drinking spot occupies a light, white-washed room in a former Victorian textiles factory which theatregoers might remember it fondly as the old Arcola Theatre. This has since upped sticks to bigger premises in an old paint factory up the road and now the building is home to a not-for-profit arts promotion organisation. Jones and Sons has a familiar urban, industrial sheen to it and the crowd is a familiar Dalston mix though the place isn’t as self-conscious as some venues in this part of town. The drinks list features a small list of classic cocktails, well made – think Sazeracs and Old Fashioneds, a sharp, strong Negroni and a house Collins made with elderflower fizz. The coolly coiffed bar tenders will happily make you up something off-list if you have a particular hankering and there’s a good range of beers from local breweries available with Meantime and Beavertown well represented – and a well thought out wine list. The food menu leans towards local suppliers. Dishes include grilled lamb loin and a decadent lobster dish made with lashings of garlic butter; their brunch offerings are also well worth checking out. Prices are pretty reasonable and the atmosphere is friendlier and more laid back than you might expect given the location in the heart of hip Dalston making this a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.
