Shockingly to those outside of Britain, and even more so to those in Britain, pub lunches don’t always have to be of the liquid variety. If you’re after some actual sustenance in a nice pub environment, then you can’t do much better than The George and Vulture. It’s out of the way enough to be an oasis of calm and, more importantly, Sodo have popped up with a residency there. Sodo is a sourdough pizza place that’s built up a bit of a neighbourhood following in Clapton and Walthamstow thanks to their tasty, saucy, I-need-a-whole-one-to-myself sourdough pizzas. At around a tenner a go the pizzas are great value, as crispy as you like, and make for a social and sensible pub lunch that doesn’t have to end in a regrettable email.
