This one’ll make you squeal like a hog – a proper, Southern style barbecue, but in Soho. Pitt Cue Co was the sensation of the South Bank last summer, served up from a mobile van beneath Hungerford Bridge – the pork, chicken, messy pork ribs and beef brisket were sloppy, tasty, and there was lots of it. Now, in common with the Meatwagon and Lucky Chip, Pitt Cue Co has knuckled down into proper, grown-up premises. It’s a tiny place: ground-floor takeaway and standing-room-only bar, while the dining room is down narrow stairs into the basement. Small tables and chairs are huddled together; bookings are not taken for the 30 seats. It takes dedication to score a seat here, with queues. But if you want to pig out on some proper barbecue food, this is the place to do it. Guy Dimond
