SquareMeal Review of The Golden Heart

1

"GOOD"

Landlady Sandra Esquilant’s house is an example of how many boozers looked in the inter-war years, yet it polarises opinion. For every tribute along the lines of ‘characterful, true original, diamond packed with interesting arty types deep in absorbing conversation’ (Tracy Emin and Sarah Lucas are fans), you’ll find detractors who lambaste the place for its cliquey, pretentious poseurs, warm beer, slapdash service and rude staff. That said, we’ve always been made to feel welcome by the pub’s eccentric host – her theatrical outbursts simply add to the evening’s proceedings. Order a bottle of well-affordable wine or a pint of Adnams and contemplate why so many precious boozers like this have been wiped off the drinkers’ map.

A straight 8 from me. A great pub. One it sells Fosters & 2 location. If you love lunchtime people watching, there is nowhere better than this place. Pull up a B&Q chair outside, sup your pint and watch the world go by. Hotty totty from the City clash heels with the Fashion students from E1. BMW X'5's toot and whinge as they are cut up by a sandwich seller on his bike, and Mr Mondeo mutters quietly as he realises that that last right turn has taken him into the dreaded Congestion Zone & he will have to pop to the newsagent. Summer is the best and shades must be worn, eyes, head, pocket, wherever. Ties are frowned upon in this neck of the woods. Enjoy!
