If you're in need of a hearty meal, look no further than Craft, located in Harrod's cross. With its minimalist decor and dim-lit ambiance, the place almost feels a little bit too swanky for some meat, but they serve theirs with as much sophistication as the place's aesthetic. A nice slice of pork belly, for instance, is served with spiced up carrots and crispy crackling ready to tantalize your taste buds and take them out for a spin. Pair that with a nice glass of Guinness and you'd have a quintessential Irish meal. You wouldn't want anything less!
