Norfolk-born builder Thomas Cubitt developed Belgravia as a stuccoed rival to swanky Mayfair. This exclusive, white-painted corner pub draws a discerning crowd to its country-house-style interior featuring open fireplaces, detailed panelling and a superb hand-made, oak counter. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open out on to tables and chairs on the street. In the bar, where excellent real ales are resident. From the menu here enjoy rock oysters; and dry-aged rib-eye, celeriac remoulade, truffle and parmesan fries perhaps. Upstairs the dining room offers dishes such as suckling Middle White pig, haggis, stuffed trotter, turnips and pommes Anna to share; and roasted and smoked cauliflower kale, crispy quail’s egg and cocoa husk. Booking is essential for the memorable Sunday roast.
