SquareMeal Review of
Anglesea Arms Hammersmith
One of the leading lights of the 90s’ gastropub explosion, the Anglesea Arms has a lower profile these days – although it still does good business and Hammersmith locals (plus their offspring)
still seem to ‘treat it like home’. Inside, it has a pared-back, almost rustic charm with little in the way of home comforts, while an open kitchen provides much of the focus. Blackboards reveal a
decent wine list with plenty by the glass and carafe, some carefully nurtured ales, seasonal oysters and unpretentious dishes such as chunky rabbit terrine, brill with mustard lentils, lamb chops
with pumpkin and rosemary or pappardelle with rich beef ragù. Pheasant with parsnips and red cabbage is a seasonal call, and roast beef is an ever-popular Sunday treat. The pavement terrace is a
handy retreat for smokers.
