SquareMeal Review of The Hat and Tun

Go-getting pub champions, Tom and Ed Martin, have revived The Hat & Tun in their signature style without losing an ounce of its Victorian charm. All the gussied-up trademarks are here, from a stuffed boar’s head to trendy designer lighting, although the sub-£10 lunch menu and lively cross-section of eccentric punters make this place more accessible than their glossier gaffs. Proper, unaffected pub grub is the order of the day; if they’re out of home-cured salt-beef doorstep sandwiches, go for a rare-breed burger, macaroni cheese or one of their freshly made pies (you can pre-order over the phone). Bag the leather armchair by the fire if it’s free, or have a natter with your neighbours at the bar over a big glass of Fuller’s London Pride or Adnams. ’Extremely accommodating’ staff are the icing on the cake.

Celebrated my Dad's 70th birthday in the The Hat and Tun, and we booked the upstairs private dining room. Everyone involved from the The Hat and Tun was extremely accommodating, especially Nadia in the lead up the event and Anton who served us on the night. The food was a delight and I would not hesitate in recommending the Hat and Tun. I look forward to returning there soon.

One of my absolute favourite little pubs in London. It's a gorgeous little place with a great atmosphere. A little tip though – I would avoid it between 5pm and 7pm. It gets very busy with City folk getting there post-work drink in, but outside those hours it's a delight.

This is my favourite place for an after dinner drink and nibble. It is such a lovely pub, and not as hectic as the rest of the places in the Clerkenwell area, being just off the beaten track. They have some fantastic whiskeys and beers here. Well worth a visit.
