This casual and laid-back spot is built for unwinding after hours with three areas: a bar at the ground level, a lounge area upstairs and an alfresco dining area overlooking the river (ideal for a spot of people watching). As you’d expect, food is mainly British—think classics like steak and chips ($20) and fish and mushy peas ($20), as well as dishes with fun names such as East End Skinheads ($8), potato skins with bacon, melted Gruyère and sour cream, and Punk Rocker ($8), poached eggs on Marmite-smeared sourdough with corn, onion and tomatoes. Expect a selection of over 30 draft (from $12/pint, $30/jug) and bottled beers (from $8), including English suds like Hobgoblin ($12), Pedigree ($12) and Abbot Ale ($11), served either chilled or at cellar temperature (if you so prefer).
When the weather is good, eating outside can be a truly enjoyable dining experience. These joints with charming open air areas are just the place to dine on breezy evenings.
