Opened in June 2012 round the corner from Chapel Market and only a short step from the wonderful new Craft Beer Co, this stripped back gastropub with a small but unusual beer range provides a potential workaround for Craft’s limited food offer. Four handpumps are usually dedicated to the products of Kent’s Old Dairy brewery, otherwise rarely seen in London, including exclusive house beer Murder a Crow and changing specials in a variety of styles. Besides lagers from Pilsner Urquell and Kozel on keg you’ll find the Curious beers brewed by Hepworth for Kent vineyard Chapel Down, plus bottled Erdinger.

A very interesting menu mixes British and Mediterranean influences, with imaginative sharing boards and main courses like marinated pork ribs, fish pie or bulgur and spinach pilaff, also available to take away. Look out for a comfy corner decorated with old bottles and sheepskin throws.

Pub trivia. Rather forebodingly, the traditional collective noun for a group of crows is a ‘murder’.
