The Lansdowne Pub & Dining Room
This attractive pub, which sports an inviting atmosphere and rustic-inspired interior, is located along a residential street in pretty Primrose Hill. Outdoor tables allow guests to dine al fresco in the sunshine, while indoors, the wooden furniture and spacious seating area calls for lazy afternoons spent sipping wine and working your way through the menu. There’s a first-floor function room available to hire for private parties and dining, too.
The home-cooked dishes are inspired by British and Mediterranean cuisine and are worth delving into. The freshly made pizzas are great for sharing with a bottle of wine from the extensive choice showcased on chalkboards. Most of the bottles are available by the glass should you wish to take it steady.
The haggis Scotch egg with curry mayo and salad, and crispy squid with mango and lime salsa are sure to get things off to a cracking start. Main dishes of pan-seared cod with rosemary and paprika new potatoes and salsa verde, and confit pork belly with prunes and Armagnac paired with pickled heritage carrots are highlights that prove this pub is a cut above the rest. Sweets, meanwhile, come in the form of citrus tart with mango sorbet, and chocolate ganache served with delectable coffee mousse.
