Squaremeal Review of The Water Poet ?

A cosy, homely kind of boozer with an added funky edge, The Water Poet is an unpretentious dive for City boys and girls to carouse amid velvet drapes, cherubs and leather sofas that encourage extended stays. Pounding music ensures that no one nods off during the evening, although the assembled crowd are usually preoccupied with knocking back draught ales such as Meantime and Doom Bar, as well as decently priced, sub-£25 wines from around the globe. Peckish punters can order ‘good, honest food’ such as steak sandwiches on sour dough, Aberdeen Angus cheeseburgers, various themed sharing boards and ‘indulgent’ puds; the Poet also does ‘huge’ Sunday lunches. If the sun’s out, make a beeline for the terrific garden area before all the seats are taken.
