Square Meal Review of Coach & Horses ?

The Coach & Horses was famously the favoured drinking den of Spectator columnist the late Jeffrey Bernard; latter-day soaks sustain themselves on draught Bombardier & Stowford’s Press, wines from under £15, sausage rolls & Scotch eggs. Will the old dame’s louche character survive under new ownership? At the time of writing, it has just been announced that the pub has been taken over by Fuller’s. Reportedly, the Grade II-listed building will receive a sensitive refurbishment, ‘maintaining its own unique character & style as a pub untouched by modern trends’. Let’s hope so. As it stands, there’s a singsong around the old joanna on Saturdays & Wednesdays & an upstairs parlour, The Private Eye Dining Room, serves trad English grub &, from 3-6 pm, becomes a secret tearoom as imagined by Jack Buchanan (see Wikipedia or ask your great-great aunt Maude).

    Forks-Up Restaurant Reviews :: Coach & Horses

    London’s restaurant scene offers an incredible amount of choice – from casual café to fine dining, London diners can sample the cuisines of just about every country you can think of. But for vegetarian diners the options are sometimes rather more limited, so it was with a good degree of enthusiastic curiosity that I and my two regular vegetarian dining partners headed to the Coach & Horses, famously London’s first vegetarian pub. Situated on a corner at the southerly end of Greek Street, from the outside it looks like a traditional British boozer – and that impression is maintained when you enter the dimly lit main bar on the ground floor, whose faded carpets and wood panelled walls appear as remnants of a bygone era. The upstairs tearoom, while equally old fashioned in terms of décor, is bright and airy with a welcoming, casual atmosphere and cute mismatched china cake stands and teacups adorning the tables...
