SquareMeal Review of Mug House

‘Old English ale served daily in the proper manner’ proclaims the sign outside this particular Davy’s outpost, which stands as one of the last bastions of antiquated pubbery. Hidden under an archway that serves as a final reminder of the original London Bridge, it nevertheless courts the tourist trade as well as local imbibers. Inside, the low ceilings, conspiratorial nooks & upturned barrels provide historical ambience, though the people lifting pewter mugs of Old Wallop are likely to be dressed in sharp modern suits. Recognisable labels such as Whitstable Bay ale & Weston’s organic cider decorate the pumps, although most people are here for the admirable Davy’s wine list. The kitchen also serves up a decent & varied selection of Med-style sharing platters, meaty mains & sandwiches to line the stomach.

For our Girls Christmas meal 6 of us attended the Mug House. We were seated quickly and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was a little slow coming to our table but it was definitely worth waiting for. Upon paying the bill we were ready to leave when the gentleman looking after our table returned to us inform us that we had overpaid and left too much cash. The staff could have said nothing and pocketed this cash but instead the honestly was outstanding and on this basis alone I would highly recommend this restaurant.
