There are locals who never venture beyond this Kentish Town favourite, which gets both the ‘pub’ & ‘gastro’ bits right. The Junction’s landlords take their drink just as seriously as their food, providing handy tasting notes for moderately priced wines, & attracting real ale enthusiasts with a regularly changing line-up. Gems such as Brodie’s Mild, Exmoor Gold or Rebellion Mutiny are poured by the buoyant bar staff. No-nonsense menus include Saturday brunches (scrambled eggs & chorizo on toast) & all-day Sunday roasts. Evening meals could mean breaded pig’s cheeks with celeriac remoulade ahead of whole roasted sea bream with a zesty salsa verde, with a comfortable conclusion provided by steamed treacle sponge & custard. The conservatory is a plum setting for romantic dinners, or there’s a leafy garden out back.
