From the moment you step through the door of this archetypal Victorian corner pub, you'll feel like one of the locals. This is one of those timeless pubs that London still has in abundance, its style simple with bare wooden floors, an assortment of furniture, walled garden, extensive patio planting and a covered and heated seating area. Regulars head here for the good selection of real ales and an international wine list. Fresh ingredients arrive daily from the London markets, enabling the Mediterranean-style menu and specials to change accordingly; all prepared in the open-to-view kitchen. So, you might start with baked king prawns with garlic; or rare roast beef and grilled asparagus salad with horseradish gremolata. Follow with penne with Italian sausage ragu; spinach and gorgonzola risotto; or pan-roast hake fillet with purple sprouting broccoli and pearl barley. A traditional British lunch is served on Sundays.
