Near the famous Sadlers Wells Theatre a short distance from Farringdon tube, this pub with pavement benches is also just a stroll away from EC1’s Exmouth Market. Timothy Taylor, Truman’s and Hackney Pale Ale are the top real ales. A dozen tasty bar snacks tempt with the likes of porcini arancini; mini smoked haddock fishcakes with tartare sauce; and smoked ham croquettes with aïoli. These indicate the modern approach to cosmopolitan ingredients found on the seasonally-changing main menu, in dishes such as rabbit ravioli with parmesan; pan-fried pollock fillet; and asparagus, tarragon and goats’ cheese pie.
