A restaurant dressed in pub clothes, this has bundles of pubby character and nice English service that makes you want to order a half of Black Sheep bitter with your smoked mackerel paté, even if you’re a wine junkie. When you look at the bill later you’ll realise you’ve been to a restaurant, but your memory will be of a pub – a good one – and perhaps the post-lunch walk on Wimbledon Common
We ate ox liver pate as well as the aforementioned mackerel pate – both full of flavour, both priced at £7.50. This was followed by a vegetarian risotto with an oeuf mollet in a scotch-egg-like casing and a tender-as-they come confit shoulder of lamb – both hugely tasty and sympathetically priced at £12 and £14.50 respectively. To finish an apple and rhubarb crumble for two (at £10) that could have easily served four was a comparative let-down with way too little rhubarb, though it was rescued in part by a delicious homemade custard.
Would I go again? Yes, though if it had been crowded as it must get at the weekend, I would have reservations on a value footing.
