i am new to the area,can anyone help with a local (ish)pub that sells proper food?
not frozen,not mass produced,not overpriced!!!!
good wholesome fresh foods-fresh vegetables,home made pies,puds,roasts etc etc etc-
is there anywhere locally or a bit further afield?
some tips/advice/directions would be nice....
you could try www.fancyapint.com and search on southwark, some of my favourites are the market porter, lord clyde (not for food but a great boozer), the food in The Roebuck is pretty good, The George has food and the kings arms near waterloo.
The George at Southwark (Borough High St.) does lovely hot pub food I think...the steak and ale pie is good. The Royal Oak is great, and a good pub too, and we went to the Woolpack in Bermondsey st. yesterday and the food was plentiful and inexpensive. There are those who are part of the Hartley.v. Bermondsey Kitchen rivalry....and we had a great SE1 Sunday lunch plus Irish folk music in ...er.....ask the gang. Welcome to SE1, we're where it's at.
The Wheatsheaf, adjacent to Borough Market certainly used to do good lunch time food [limited menu, freshly cooked on the premises] however, I haven't been there recently. It's a Youngs pub, but don't hold that against it.
