SquareMeal Review of
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.
