London isn’t amazing for walk-in spaces that are excellent for a few drinks and a bite to eat, but don’t get packed to the brim. That’s the kind of itch Fare Bar and Canteen at the Clerkenwell end of Old Street scratches. The upstairs bar is basically a coffee shop by day, but it also serves very tasty, snack-sized pizzas, and has a choice of wines, beers, and cocktails on tap. The downstairs restaurant is a slightly different deal. It’s cosy and attractive, and it fits in with the area perfectly, but there are better options locally if you’re looking for the kind of slightly serious meal it serves.
