There's an intriguing combination of food and drink at this Southwark Bridge Road boozer - thanks in no small part to the solid range of craft beer and the regular Monday night pop-up from Toi's Thai Kitchen. 

Toi's Thai curry and her stir-fried noodles also feature on the daily menu, alongside rib-eye steaks, house burgers, meze sharers and salads of watermelon, feta, rocket and pumpkin seeds. Sunday roasts prove popular, as do bar snacks such as prawn crackers with a sweet chilli dip, and crispy chilli wonton skins.

The craft beers rotate regularly but expect drops the ilk of Goose Island Honkers Ale, Dogfish Head DNA, Brewdog Punk IPA and Pistonhead Kustom Lager. The cocktail list keeps things pretty classic - martinis, negronis, daiquiris, things like that.

I actually ended up at The Goldsmith by mistake - we were meant to go somewhere nearby for a roast but they had stopped serving. What a brilliant mistake! The Goldsmith is a small pub with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. We didn't book a table but I would recommend doing so as it was full the whole time we were there (it is quite small) - we got lucky with a table. I was with an American friend who had never had a roast dinner before so the stakes were high! As far as roast orders go, my group was a little bit picky. I asked for no potatoes and extra Yorkshire pudding and one of my friends asked for different vegetables to what was on the menu. However, the guy serving us was completely accommodating and also gave our American friend his recommendation for the best first roast - beef. The wait for food wasn't too long but wasn't worryingly quick - and we passed the time with a bottle of prosecco :)
When the food came, it looked and smelled amazing. Being the indecisive human being I am, I went for a mix of pork and lamb. It was the best decision! Both were super tender and flavoursome. The Yorkshire puddings were perfect. It was hands down the best pub roast I've had in London. And the portion sizes were just right (i.e. pretty darn big). Best of all, the American approved! She loved her roast and polished it off. All in all, a great evening and I would 100% recommend this pub for a Sunday roast!

Love this little place. Close enough to Borough/London Bridge to be accessible but tucked away so you don't get randoms who wander over as it's the first place they see when they leave the tube. The food here is high standard, a slightly odd mixture of English and Thai but it means you’re covered whatever you’re in the mood for. Cosy tables, friendly staff, couches at the back if you’re in a lounging mood and round the corner from the fire station so you can ogle the guys training on your way to lunch. What more could a girl ask for?

Tip: book a table at busy times and allow longer than an hour for late week lunches as it’s popular and the kitchen is small.
