The landlords of this spruced-up Victorian tavern take their drink just as seriously as their food, providing handy tasting notes for moderately priced wines, and attracting real ale enthusiasts with a regularly changing line-up – perhaps Adnams Lighthouse, Otter Ale and Naked Ladies (from Twickenham Fine Ales). The pub’s current chef earned his stripes at Vinoteca in Soho, so expect Spanish cured meats, Italian artisan cheeses and Greek deli specialities alongside sustainable fish from British waters, Elwy Valley lamb and Shropshire venison. Typical offerings might range from Hereford beef carpaccio or grilled Cornish mackerel with samphire and ginger dressing to Barnsley chop with fresh cocoa beans, soutzouki, chard and gremolata or hake with chorizo, mussels, clams and potatoes, followed by chocolate St Emilion or Pimms jelly with Chantilly. The conservatory is a plum setting for romantic dinners, and there’s a leafy garden out back.

The Junction Tavern is one of my favorite places to eat and drink out. The large selection of ales is just amazing, especially with the festival events they do. The food is great value and the staff are very welcoming. I have to give full marks for The Junction Tavern!
It’s round the corner from me and a godsend! It sums up what gastropubs should be: good honest food that’s well cooked and served by people who remember your name – or appear to – who smile and don't rush you. The wine list is good and they deserve a special mention for offering three different sherry's by the glass! If they were open on Xmas day I would book it years ahead.
Continues to do a fabulous. Staff could give lessons on service to most of London's finest eateries.

Excellent food – i had pan fried cod fillet with sauteed potatoes and spinach, delicious and i savoured every mouthful! It was packed out on a Sunday so id advise booking – i luckily got a table with booking but can imagine usually its nigh on impossible. There is parking in the area too which is a plus! There is an excellent deal of two courses for £15 though i had the a la carte as usual. Partner had fish cakes which looked humungous as did the puddings. I really had to hold back from being ‘nicely full’ rather than my usual ‘rolling out of the front door’. Loads of familes and friendly looking pub types + dogs.
Loved it and wish it was my local – am definitely heading back!
Went back again yesterday – fantastic meal (the Sunday roast) plus mouthwatering blueberry cheesecake – AND a scruffy dog to watch me eat – blissful. Again, wish it was my local…
