If you’ve ever visited Columbia Road on a Sunday, chances are you’ve ducked into this pub to escape the crowds. While the downstairs is great for a pint, the upstairs does a cracking Sunday lunch. Expect no-nonsense plates of your standard beef, chicken, and pork fare, and a surprisingly tasty vegetarian option. Get one of their real ales or craft beers, and enjoy your probably-too-big Sunday lunch over the sounds of the market outside.
