Then came sweet fresh mackerel fillets with beetroot and hazelnuts and a nice  big rump steak, full of age and richness, covered in butter and snails,  deeply salty, fatty, wonderful, and a perfect match for many of the great  wines that, as the restaurant’s name implies, are available here, mostly by  the glass, I think, with some weirdy-deirdy natural ones thrown in, and at  good prices…

Primeur appears to be a smarter investment than many: it passes its MOT with no advisories, and is already showing signs of becoming – among Highbury eateries – a very nice little runner…
