This pub in Clerkenwell serves outstanding food, and its upstairs dining room is so pretty that you’re likely to witness, and/or one day be invited to, a ‘laid-back, casual, and fun’ (but actually meticulously planned) wedding party there. On a Sunday you can avoid any wedding shenanigans by grabbing a table downstairs, where you should get The Peasant’s epic Sunday roast, which comes with the gravy already poured on. This information may send you into a state of mild panic, but relax, as they nail the gravy to roast ratio every time.
