The pretty Anglesea Arms insists on calling itself a ‘pub with a kitchen', but there's no arguing with the all-round appeal of this sociable W6 veteran. A new chef took over in summer 2012, although much of the short, Brit-inspired blackboard menu remains intact – from smoked eel with pea croquette and poached egg or calf's liver with lentils, kale and bacon to the ever-popular roast beef. Meanwhile, a mixed crowd of Chardonnay-sipping yummy mummies, semi-retired property developers and Hammersmith office types convene in the boisterous bar and cosy fireside lounge to sample real ales from Marston's, the Otter Brewery and others – plus some very decent wines by the glass and carafe. The pavement terrace is handy for those who want to retreat with a digestif and a hand-rolled Cuban cigar.
