SquareMeal Review of The Temperance

Aside from a few deer heads, cabinet-mounted fish, two pink velvet-embossed walls & ceiling-height windows, The Temperance’s wood-on-wood interior has little to distinguish it from your average city boozer. London Pride, Leffe, Beck’s & San Miguel grace the bar at fair prices, & wines barely stray beyond the £20 mark – making the place hugely popular with after-work drinkers. The main menu inhabits the gastropub world of wild duck & apricot terrine, warm goats’ cheese frittata, & linguine with Dorset crab & mussels; there are burgers, too, plus puds such as peanut butter cheesecake. Simpler bar snacks (cheese on toast, Scotch eggs, spring rolls) help to satisfy the evening drinkers, while Sunday is for Bloody Marys & roasts. There’s also a bright private room with a plasma screen upstairs.

A suprisingly good pub! Went with a ferw friends, I must admit that we were aiming for a pub around the corner which ended up being packed and loud, so we gave up and decided to go for a walk to see if we could find some where a bit quieter. Stumbling upon the temperance was one of my better finds… The spirits collection was impressive and after ordering a pitcher of Pimms we had a gander at the menu. A high class pub menu, with a great burger and hand cut chips (a personal favourite) guarenteed our stay for the rest of the evening. The staff were welcoming, sharing jokes with the table and making time to accomodate us, even as the evening got busier. I'll try remember to write a new review next time I'm there, as this one is a bit breif. Untill next time…
