A French bistro in a former pub, Somerstown Coffeehouse is a lively refuge from the grimey backstreets of Euston. The cooking is unlikely to set pulses racing, but it’s perfectly decent, rustic Gallic fare: think moules marinière, steak-frites with a Roquefort sauce & rum baba to finish. The kitchen also rustles up croques monsieur & generous platters of charcuterie for sharing (perhaps wild-boar terrine, rabbit rillettes & foie-gras parfait with bacon & onion flatbread). True to form, the predominantly French staff are either charming or aloof, depending on which way the wind is blowing. The original pub bar remains, so you can drink Bombardier Bitter or Erdinger indoors or in the quaint rear courtyard – unless you prefer something from the global wine list.
