Review: Mac & Wild

Get ready for a haggis filled treat.

Where to find them:

65 Great Titchfield St, Fitzrovia, London W1W 7PS

Oxford Circus is a 8 minute walk.

What they’re about:

Mac & Wild take diners on a journey to the Scottish Highlands, serving up the finest wild game, seafood, whisky and beer all in a rustic setting.

What to order:

Definitely not coffee. This doesn’t exist here. They will laugh if you ask. Don’t ask how I know.

  • Haggis Pops
  • Tattie Tots (I probably wouldn’t reorder these again)
  • Venison SCotch Egg
  • Full Scottish Breakfast
  • Veni-moo burger
  • Truffle Mac n Cheese

The Verdict:

I love the rustic interior of the restaurant with the bark tables inside but the sun was shining so of course we sat outside. As soon as I scheduled this in my diary I knew I was in for a meaty treat and my haggis virginity was about to be broken. Started easy with the venison scotch egg, which was a hearty scotch egg but I over smothered it in mustard, my own error. Then I went hard core haggis (kind of) with the haggis pops. It was then that I knew haggis wasn’t quite for me, it’s a peculiar taste that I can’t quite describe, I don’t hate it but I don’t love it. What I did love was the Venison-moo burger. If you’re a burger lover then theres no way you haven’t heard of it, I was DYING to try it and it didn’t disappoint. If I had to describe the taste it would be a better, classier more succulent version of McDonalds Big-Mac and I love a Big-Mac so if you go for anything, go for the Venison-moo. The truffle Mac and cheese was nice but lacked in truffle taste, it was more like just a mushroom Mac n cheese which was a bit sad but I still ate the whole bloody thing.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this as a brunch to try when in London, not suitable for vegetarians but definitely offers a little twist and perfect for burger lovers.
