Standing beside an attractive, tree-lined Georgian terrace and backed by a tranquil patio garden, this popular neighbourhood local was founded in the 1830s by one of London's trade guilds, and today combines fine dining with an appealing range of real ales and cider. Choose a beer from Dark Star or Windsor & Eton breweries, or one of 16 wines by the glass, and prepare to tackle the ever-changing menu. Exceptional starters may include deviled duck hearts, dripping pancake and watercress, followed by mackerel, pickled plums, chicory and mustard. You’ll also find classics like steaks, beef pie, and roast pork, apple sauce and crackling sandwich. Gingerbread pudding with whipped cream, almonds and oats to finish.
