SquareMeal Review of The Perseverance

With its pretty location, junkyard-chic decor & trendy staff, The Perseverance looks every inch the offbeat neighbourhood boozer. Unfortunately, service doesn’t always come with a smile, & the menu is only a notch or two up from 90s’ chain-pub fodder. Light bites run to nachos, mini burgers & crab cakes, while big plates of chicken, steak, burgers & pies are all served with piles of chips. There are simple sandwiches, too, but weekday lunch specials are the top shout – perhaps lamb casserole with herb dumplings or couscous with a tomato & merguez sausage sauce for just £6.95. On a sunny day, retreat to the alfresco tables armed with a pint of draught Peroni, Leffe or Amstel.

I went into The Perseverance for lunch last week, I have just started working off Lambs Conduit Street and always like to try the local pubs and restaurants. The pub was busy, as it was a Friday lunch, but we managed to sit down. First thing I noticed was their great selection of ales, I tried the Hackney Hopster which is a pale ale and also the Bloomsbury something… both were great. I had the lamb shank and my friend had the fish and chips. Lamb shank was tender with lovely creamy mash and was the perfect accompaniment to my ale. My friend enjoyed his fish and chips although he missed out on the hand cut chips, will have to get them next time. All in all a great little pub, value for money is as good as you will find in any pub around the area and the staff were friendly. Will be going back in the near future.
