The Leconfield

SquareMeal Review of The Leconfield

In Georgian times, this landmark hostelry refreshed farmers herding livestock from Hertfordshire’s green fields to Smithfield Market. These days, Love Not War (from London Fields brewery) and other CAMRA-admired ales from Hackney, Hammerton and Redemption are among the thirst-quenchers to expect at this sprawling Green Lanes gaff – all distressed junkyard booty. Otherwise, wine prices fall to £12.50 for Tempranillo during the ‘afternoon social’ (5-7pm). A competent kitchen sends out crowd-pleasing grub too: venison Scotch eggs and peppered whitebait feature among the bar snacks, while the full menu touts everything from steaks and posh burgers to Stilton, fig and walnut salad, Spanish-style stews, twice-roasted pork belly and slow-braised lamb shepherd’s pie – homage to drovers of yore, perhaps. Festival-circuit favourites play regularly, there are quizzes on Thursday nights and major sporting events are screened on TV.
