On the scale of things that make a great pub, The Builder’s Arms rates pretty high. An exciting menu of updated British classics for under twenty quid. Check. Six different roast options on their Sunday lunch menu. Check. Outdoor seating for those summer days and drunken evenings. Check. And, that’s without even starting on the hefty wine list, open fireplace, and local craft beer tap takeovers. If it’s your local, we’re jealous. If it’s not, well, the ridiculously tasty £5 scotch egg alone is a good enough reason to risk the Circle line.
