LONDON | Pharmacy 2 is the restaurant located above the gallery space at Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhaull. It’s a collaboration with restaurateur Mark Hix and, as the name suggests, is Pharmacy themed. All of the artwork that adorns the restaurant is a Hirst artwork and no stone has been left untouched – every aspect of the restaurant has had the pharmacy touch put to it. Usually themed restaurants are fun but the pharmacy theme here in a way that we suppose is authentic, feels quite sterile.

Service is efficient, dare we say clinically so. Our waiter had an impressive knowledge of everything on the menu, and gave detailed descriptions when we enquired as to the intricacies of specific dishes but there wasn’t much passion. As for the food itself, the highlights here are the smaller dishes. The pork crackling has a great texture and perfect crunch to it while the Brik à l’oeuf consists of fried filo pastry filled with runny duck egg and a side of chilli paste and is a delight. The chocolate mousse we ate had an odd grainy texture to it and was lacking in depth.

If you’re visiting the gallery for an exhibition or in the area already you’ll get a perfectly acceptable meal here and a great cocktail or two but as a stand alone eating destination Pharmacy 2 doesn’t quite hit the mark.
