3 out of 5 stars

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The crossroads of family homes and little shops the Elephant & Castle calls home could almost be a quiet village in Oxfordshire, a comparison on which you might muse as you sip a pint of London Pride or Doom Bar (joined by guests such as Thornbridge Jaipur or Stonehenge Sign of Spring) on the terrace.

The interior feels lived in: regulars find their place on a studded, upholstered banquette, in a wooden booth or in an intimate back room lined with newspaper splashes of 20th-century moments (Laika, Neil Armstrong).

The blurb on the menu – pies, pastas, sausages – refers to the pub’s traditional attraction to journalists (it’s within post-deadline range of the Mail’s office). These days, though, you’ll mostly find residents and white-collar workers doing the Standard crossword.
