The Drapers Arms

RESERVE A TABLE

POWERED BY

open table

When we think of gastropubs we think of the noughties. Jamie Oliver skateboarding around his Old St flat holding a pestle and mortar shouting ‘YOU’RE PUKKA MATE’ at his salsa verde. Trinny and Susannah dismantling someone’s appearance, personality, and very soul of being before telling them they had ‘nice tits’. And of course, every pub in London serving lamb shank.

Needless to say we’re glad that time has passed, but the gastropub tag hasn’t. Pubs nowadays are able to be both pubby and serve very good food. It’s confusing to traditionalists but it’s the truth and the Drapers Arms is a perfect example of this. Located in a residential area off Upper St, the Drapers is a proper establishment. There’s a slightly more formal dining area at the back but otherwise grab a table up front. The roasts here are particularly excellent but otherwise anything pie is a definite winner. There’s a garden out back but be wary, this place is very popular on weekends.
