SquareMeal Review of The Londesborough

When new owners arrived at this handsome backstreet gastropub in 2010, they installed their vintage beer-can collection in glass cabinets that also provide the lighting for the large dining room. Relax in the sunny patio garden in summer, or cosy up by the open fireplaces when it’s cold, & tuck into a menu that’s pitched to please. You’ll find a homemade burger, rib-eye steak & sausages with champ & gravy, but the kitchen can also knock up poached Burford brown eggs with hot smoked salmon, brioche & hollandaise, or Somerset-cider fish stew with mussels, clams & aïoli. Sundays are popular for brunches of bloody Mary & kedgeree, or a pint of Doom Bar with punchy British cheeses. Friday & Saturday nights are spent stoking up the next day’s sore head to an eclectic soundtrack, courtesy of local DJs.

Just been for one of my best roast lunches at The Londesborough – and I know good roasts! I'm always on a mission to find the perfect combo of meat, yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and gravy. Usually one is lacking, but not here. All of them are spot on. It also comes with a great selection of vegetables including broccoli, cabbage, parsnips, courgettes and carrots. With great service and lovely high ceilings and open space – I wish I was a local. Make sure you book – many people were turned away on our visit today. Ps try if possible to leave a bit of space for pudding or just have a long interval like I did before having chocolate and pear tart. Mmmm.
