SquareMeal Review of
It’s refreshing to find a proper boozer that has evolved into the 21st century not as a glorified gastro-enterprise but a place where the bar is still at its heart, though the food is good too. Such is The Grafton; comfortable banquettes, wooden tables and chairs aplenty are spread over the two floors and rooftop terrace, but it gets packed at peak times with folk keen to sink a pint or two of craft ale or cider. Food is a mix of classic pub grub and street food: fish ‘n’ chips, sausage and mash and some seriously good Scotch eggs. For veggies, the chestnut cottage pie with olive oil mash is a total winner. There’s no booking, so get there early to bag a table.
