“Bowled, but not bowled over”
Reviewed 16 December 2011

Went there for business type lunch. Gastro pub like menu with a twist e.g. Chicken and chorizo pie. A £9burger was a bit wizened and chips were meager. My pie was ok,but could have been hotter. I guess it was a bit pricey for a pub lunch. Sausage and mash seems to be the thing to go for

“Excellent food just around the corner fromthe Met Archives”
Reviewed 22 July 2011

We spent the day trawling through old records at the Metropolitan Archives and, when we went out to stretch our legs, were delighted to find this place just around the corner.
The atmosphere was modern pub-like with table service and cheerful, friendly staff.
They also had a huge screen showing Wimbledon tennis.
The food was absolutely excellent. We both had bangers and mash (large portions of local Cumberland sausages with fluffy mash and onion gravy) for 8.50 GBP. Certainly the best I have eaten for ages.
The menu included salads, specials, typical pub food (fish & chips etc) and vegetarian options such as Gazpacho soup, pea & mint risotto.
We will certainly eat there again next time we are in quirky Clerkenwell and are very glad that we didn’t take a packed lunch with us to the Met Archives otherwise we would have missed this gem.
