I did not know that it was a gastro pub. Along with my companion I had just had a wonderful lunch for £5 at Surrey Docks Farm . The meat was from the farm and real apples were just 30p each. We sat sheltered from the sun on the terrace with hops spilling over the fence.
I see that the paper also listed The Trout at at Tadpole – although the location is given as Buckland Marsh. Sadly it’s now rather expensive.
But back in London we also tried the new Tassili Coffee Shop on the path in East Lane next to Chambers Wharf. Seems to be popular with walkers.
