Not to be confused with the nearby Green Tavern, this classy, food-oriented corner venue looks like a typical neighbourhood pub, but takes a distinctly continental approach to proceedings. Below a huge antique clock, smartly dressed types loosen their ties and tuck into upscale bar snacks (homemade Cumberland sausage rolls, warm pork scratchings with apple sauce) or more substantial mains (steamed sea bass, perhaps, or risotto of cauliflower, sorrel and truffle oil).
There are around 30 wines, a dozen or so of which are available by the glass; draught options include Bee Sting Pear Cider, Licher Weizen, Bitburger and Adnams, with Duvel and Bellevue Kriek sold by the bottle. The square of terrace by the front door catches the sun quite nicely, while upstairs is a slightly more formal dining room.
