The Alfred Tennyson 1

Squaremeal Review of The Alfred Tennyson ?

Formerly The Pantechnichon, this cheerfully welcoming pub makeover from the clever chaps behind The Orange and The Thomas Cubitt is bang on-trend. The whole place is (predictably) attractive – a fine Georgian edifice with big windows, nice views, a comfortably laid-back ground-floor bar and a stylishly appointed restaurant upstairs, with one menu covering both spaces. What you get is a compendium of Brit-accented dishes old and new: “good-looking” salt-and-pepper squid with smoked chilli and lime dressing; rare-breed burgers with triple-cooked chips; venison and bacon pie; guinea fowl with rainbow chard and wild mushrooms. The day’s market fish is also worth a punt (grilled Arctic char with lentils, perhaps), while dessert might promise roasted pear with custard brioche and gingerbread ice cream. Weekend breakfasts and serious Sunday roasts also make the place a popular rendezvous for locals, while the wine list is priced for easy drinking.
