More elegant than its neighbours in a lively shopping street, this late Victorian pub is frequented by an enthusiastic crowd of drinkers and diners. Attractions include the wood-floored bar, its craft beers, organic and biodynamic wines, Breton cider and a generous lunch menu featuring Dexter beef ragout with gnocchi, black cabbage and parmesan; and salt marsh lamb kleftiko and Greek salad. In the evening, equally distinctive options include brown shrimps and kohlrabi on a buttered crumpet; cuttlefish in ink with roasted peppers and orzo pasta; and delica pumpkin, coconut and chick pea curry with raita and barbecued naan.
