Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Having been given an extensive recent makeover, this Southwark gastropub straddling the corner of Garden Row and Gladstone Street offers plenty of enticement to passersby. The Victorian building now looks like an appetising spot.
The food menu looks like it should be a draw, too. Dishes range from French onion soup, cod croquettes with tomato chutney and grilled sardines on toast with parsley, black olives and roast tomato salad to Ginger Pig onglets, moules mariniere, a spiced Provençale fish stew and pork chops with smoked macaroni and cheese, roast tomatoes and spinach. Desserts include sticky toffee pudding, a blood orange posset and a chocolate and coffee torte.
Expect rotating ales on tap alongside a lengthy, detailed wine list that leans toward the old world.
