Desperately trying to find traditional pub food in London

IsabellaD | Jun 16, 2009 01:16 PM

Hi all,
This is my very first posting.

I just came across the website tonight. A Fantastic find:)

I am an Australian who has been working in London for the last five months ( a food tragic, Borough markets the only option for a girl to shop...forget about clothes!)and my contract is about to finish, so I am about to go home via France.( that is for another posting).

I have had the pleasure of eating in plenty of traditional english pubs in Wales,Gloucester,Oxford and Norfolk but I am yet to find one in London. I have friends coming to visit in a weeks time, who have not been to the UK for 20 years. They lived here and have a very romantic view of what it is like to eat in a pub( traditional English food). I have only experienced those average Gastro-Pubs! Who came up with that name??? Some of my experiences have been Gastro.... not Gastronomic!

Currently living in Clapham but I have heard that the 'Dove' in Hammersmith is good for a Sunday lunch.
Can anyone help?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
