Review on The Peasant

One of the first gastropubs in London to make a name for itself, this red-brick Victorian hostelry stands on a corner site. Inside it has been handsomely restored with a mahogany horseshoe bar and inlaid mosaic floor plus a stunning conservatory.

If you fancy staying in the downstairs bar, you can quaff a pint of real ale and choose from a menu of tapas-style nibbles including stuffed vine leaves, asparagus with piquillo peppers and Spanish meatballs, as well as more substantial dishes such as roast cod with wok-fried black beans and chilli sauce.

Alternatively, venture upstairs for the full-on restaurant experience under the glimmer of antique chandeliers. Here the menu features more elaborate ideas in the shape of chicken liver parfait on cucumber, parsley and anchovy salad, then roast rabbit with spinach, sultanas and pine nuts, followed by steamed stem ginger and allspice pudding. The promising 40-bin wine list includes plenty by the glass.
