SquareMeal Review of Hung Drawn and Quartered

Named after the grisly form of capital punishment traditionally meted out at the Tower of London opposite, this new pub occupies an imposing Edwardian edifice that has recently been refurbished to accentuate its gilded pillared pomp. A more civilised English tradition – a pie and a pint – is the kitchen’s current focus. Try gooseberry-burst Spring Sprinter or Seafarers Ale among the draught selection from owners Fuller’s brewery, and accompany your pint with freshly baked pies served with potatoes, buttered greens and gravy. Fillings include chicken and chorizo; spiced mutton, black pudding and plum; chestnut and mushroom in a red wine, thyme and cream sauce; and smoked fish and cider topped with Cheddar mash (£10.95). Lunchtimes see a brisk trade in sandwiches, too. Appropriately, given the name, the classic pub food – also encompassing fish & chips or wild mushroom ravioli, followed by sticky toffee pud or fruit crumble – is well-executed.
