The JT is a gastropub that still takes the pub part of that label seriously. Its beer selection is great, and you can drink it in a sizeable portion of the pub without ordering food (as well as in the garden at the back). But the gastro side of things is no poor relation. Daily-changing menus always include creamy, filling vegetable-based soups and at least one vegetarian option which can often be the most intriguing thing on the menu. It’s hugely popular, so you’ll want to book at weekends if you want a meal - and be prepared for a two-hour time slot if they’re really rammed. In good weather, the quiet back garden is one of the best places in NW5 to eat and drink outdoors.
