Square Meal Review of The Punch Tavern ?

Journos from Punch magazine allegedly congregated in this tavern during the mid-19th century, & they’d probably be pleased to see this British bulldog of a pub still bears the publication’s name. Fairy lights & a slightly incongruous fish tank don’t add much to the stately Victorian interior with its smoky wood panelling & ornate marble bar, but luckily the menu rings like a refrain from ‘Rule Britannia’. Honey-roast ham & eggs or Biggles sausages with mash & onion gravy are typically patriotic mains, but if you’re feeling nostalgic go for the ‘British Empire’ sharing platter, with samosas, spring rolls & Welsh rarebit. Doom Bar, Summer Lightning & Hobgoblin are among the real ales on tap.

  1. A nice result of BPW 2014 was I got an invite to visit Fleet Street’s historic grade II listed Punch Tavern to savour the excellent pies prepared there by Chef Matt. Good thing for London folk, it’s pretty much pie week every week at the Punch, as the pub lists at least a couple of pies every week on its hearty British menu. During my dine, I sampled a fantastic pheasant, partridge and bacon pie as well as one with pigeon, sweet potato and juniper. It was a tough choice even having the chance to tuck in to two different pies as the rabbit, hare, cider, mustard pie sounded like an equally appealing treat as did the veal, red wine, and olives option. Pies were served with ample mash and roasted seasonal veggies. It’s worth noting that the game used in the pies (and any dish at the tavern) is sourced from Suffolk, all shot by the chef’s uncle. Pies range in price from £8.50 for a vegetarian cheese and cauliflower pie to £11.50 for a steak pie...
