Corner pub with a large selection of draught beer that serves an interesting menu, including an early price fixed that comfortably fills the stomach. We had starters of two grilled sardines and grilled mussels (rather than snails) in a typical escargot sauce and mains of...More

Across from Crowne Plaza. Went here just looking to get something to eat. Ended up eating here 4 of 6 nights I was there because it was so GOOD! Meals were schnitzel, lamp chop, ribeye steak, and Sunday pork roast. Amazing! Also recommend calamari starter!

Tasty food in a relaxed pub environment. Good sized portions worth the money. Friendly staff, small cozy food area but still not over crowded.

Food was solid, portions large (we only ate 2/3 of what was presented), and prices very reasonable. Would recommend as long as you don't want anything fancy.

Staying nearby, needed a pre-theatre menu and you certainly get great food at excellent value. 2 courses for £12.95, top ingredients fabulously prepared. A real find, don't miss it if your're in the area.

Found this lovely place when we were staying over the road at The Crowne Plaza and didn’t really want to eat at the hotel. We were 2 adults and 2 children. We ate from the set menu and the children had the kids meals. We...More

Visited on a weekday lunchtime, and had the great value set menu - £7.95 for grilled mussels & linguine, which were both delicious! We were also given bread for the table. The service was also excellent, wouldn't hesitate to return.

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

Get the DLR to Bank and the Northern Line to King's Cross. From there it's about 2 stops on the 63 bus which you can get outside King's Cross station.
