Home of the famous foie gras toastie, this cozy neighborhood pub has been a longtime landmark in South London and, although rich plum red paint and gorgeous vintage mirrors have been added, the pub still maintains its original hardwood floors, stained glass windows and, of course, classic front bar. In the kitchen, talented chef Trish Hilferty, formerly of the Fox and the Eagle, elevates traditional pub fare to something sophisticated yet still familiar. The ever-changing daily menu may include such specialties as flavorful house terrine, tender pork tonnato, comforting oxtail and split pea soup and succulent six-hour braised mutton shoulder.

Insider Tip:

If you’re pining after a certain specialty, such as the deliciously crisp and creamy foie gras toastie, make sure to arrive early before the scrumptious supply vanishes.
