A traditional, attractive pub with more than a hint of the gastro about it. It's located on Gloucester Avenue – a pretty Primrose Hill road wide of berth and leafy. A few outdoor tables here offer pleasing summer drinking.
There's a Mediterranean slant to the food menu here, though influences from further afield also feature. Expect, then, dishes ranging from chicken liver parfait, salt cod croquettes with aioli, and Spanish red pepper stew to pappardelle with wild boar meatballs, roast cod with sautéed celeriac, and baked aubergine and puy lentils served with piquillo peppers, almonds and pomegranate molasses.
Most of the bottles on the wine list are available by the glass and carafe, and are served alongside a good number of ales on rotation. Keep an eye out for special events such as wine tasting sessions and live music.
