The diner portions are huge, so make sure your starving if you want to squeeze in a dessert!
The waitress was friendly, and the dining room has a slight country feel to it (you'd never believe you were only a mile away from Dalston)
For starters we had the asparagus and poached egg (£5) and lamb chops with beans and salad £12) Not cheap 'pub food,' but the quality of the food was above average, so i thought it was fairly priced, and the drink price was reasonable too.
Service was good, and didn't feel rushed at all go leave after we'd eaten which was a nice touch.
A log fire in the corner, lots of old pictures around the walls, dim lights and candles all around gives the dining room some character as the sun sets.
Ive heard the Sunday roasts are very popular, so will probably return to see how good they really are.
DOES IT WELL...
Good pub. Good food. Friendly staff.
Manages to bridge being a local pub and a hip pre-club destination venue.
Food is consistently of very high quality and, whilst not cheap, is well presented and a thoughtful varied menu.
The owner (Rosie) is a sound local who is engaged with the local community.
This used to be our local long ago and far away. Work brought me back to the hood this afternoon so of course I swung by.
Real ales on tap -currently a truman's, an excellent range of wines by the glass, free wifi and an adorable little pub dog who forces you to play "fetch the cork".
I tried ignoring him so I could finish some work and he picks the filthy slobbery cork up and puts it on my seat. Definitely put me in my place.
Wiley little guy... This would be a five star review if the dog wasn't so good at "fetch the cork". Aren't you supposed to let the patrons win?

Quite a posh looking pub on the corner, with a small outside area, where when I visited some punters were being entertained by a musician.
Pub didn't have the feel I like, it may be a bit upmarket for me. I was served a decent pint of Trumans Runner by a stunning barmaid mind you.
Named after an offshore barrier Island near Norfolk.
Wonderful cozy pub with a lovely beer garden in the front. Good bicycle parking right outside as well. Best for sunny days, though it's warm and cozy inside as well in case you pop by here on a cold day. Good squashy sofas inside and menu looks tasty - I always see a lot of people digging into generous roasts.
This seems to be the local pub for sunday roasts and I can see why.
The atmosphere made me feel like curling up with the sunday paper and my bloody mary and stay there the whole afternoon, occasionally chatting with my friends. The food was good too, including a yummy dessert, and the staff was friendly and efficient.
On the downside, £82 for four people is a bit expensive for a pub meal.
On the I-don't-know side, I still haven't tried any of their booze other that that bloody mary.
This is the best pub around this area, the landlady is really friendly and they are making a great go of striking a good balance between local pub/gastro food. At least the staff here are pretty normal not like the freak show coolios round the corner in the Talbot Arms. The food is well priced here and the dining room is really nice, my only gripe with the food is that for vegetarians there is normally 1 main choice of a tomato pasta on - C’mon guys you can do better than this! - homemade pesto, or fresh ravioli with sage and butter…etc besides that the wine list is good and service genuine. Only bad experience was going in on a Saturday night at the same time as a table full of Trustapharians on a birthday bash - worse that trying to have an intimate candlelit meal in the middle of Bluewater on a Bank Holiday Monday, but we were just unlucky…. Give it a go they deserve the custom.
Probably the most 'normal’ of pubs around the De Beauvoir town area. Sure it’s been fancied up in recent years, but you won’t be paying top end restaurant prices for your food like you might in the nearby Northchurch.
It’s a large pub with character and an attractive triangular outdoor section with picnic bences and umbrellas. Inside is massive with the gigantic back room they’ve opened. They use this room in particular for a pub quiz on a Monday which is general knowledge and quite good fun.
Fine, but nothing mind blowing.
This place used to be called the Sussex and was re done about a year ago. They've opened up a back room for the first time so it's now a pretty big place. The back room now houses a pool table and off to the other side of the bar there's a nice dining area, which looks lovely and inviting with little candles on the tables and real napkins. The menu is quite small but still there seemed to be a decent variety of stuff on it (steak - £13, vegetable lasagne etc) and apparently it changes every day, and there's a different menu for lunchtime too.
House wine was really nice and it was around £4.20 for a big glass, so not cheap but fairly average priced.
Staff were very friendly and there's was a mixed but mainly young crowd when we were there on a saturday.
Much, much fresher decor than the old place (it used to be all old patterend pub carpets and dark wooden bar stools, always a dog in the corner...)
It's off the main road (half way between Soutgate and Kingsland and hidden down a side street) so you wouldn't stumble past it, but worth a visit if you fancy a change of scene.
