I booked a table at this 'restaurant' for dinner with a vegan friend and based on the website we thought we were in for a treat. However upon reaching the tavern, we found it to be very run down, dingy and dark, with no restaurant...More

If you happen to be walking by and have a thirst, stop in and have a drink, then keep moving. It was a plain place that could be much more comfortable with a little effort.

I and a friend sought out this pub tonight expecting to find some much needed vegetarian food... it's hard to get veggie stuff in most restaurants at all... never mind vegan food. Having seen the reviews and menus online I thought this MUST be the...More

Further to my earlier review, please note that the Smithfield Tavern now does "Pub Lunch" style food ( Ploughman's, Sandwiches, Salads - not all of which is Vegetarian ) but no hot choices yet ...

Terrible atmosphere, noisy and not the top of cleanness. Food just no good, not fresh, not exciting. I have had far far better veggie food in many non-vegetarian pubs here and there in London. Definitely not to recommend.

This is a real find. Went with a couple of friends and everything we ate was sublime. The homemade sausages were such a treat. Good service and atmosphere. Friendly, not too loud, not too quiet. The tofu masala steak was good too. The mains are...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
