When we first started exploring our new neighborhood in London we decided to walk down a random street. Neither one of us knew where it would take us. I believe this is one of the best ways to find hidden gems. And on that day I was not disappointed. The road led us to a pub called Warwick Arms. We had only been in our new flat for a couple of weeks and we had visited many of the pubs near us. Most of them were decent, good food and service, but lacking a quality both of us appreciates. They weren’t cozy.
Warwick Arms is a traditional English pub. The owner lives above it and on most days he is sitting at the bar conversing with the patrons. The staff is friendly. The regulars are entertaining and welcoming. And on a cold day, they have fires going and if you are lucky, you can sit in a comfortable leather chair by one of the fires and enjoy a beer and read a good book. Life doesn’t get much better for me.
Also, their menu is fantastic. They serve traditional pub food, but they also have a wonderful Indian menu. On Fridays, they have an Indian buffet from 12 pm-3 pm. I will warn you that the buffet is popular so getting a table can be tricky. On Sundays they have a carvery, usually with the choice of two meats, roasted veggies, and Yorkshire pudding. Since this pub is close to us I’ve been able to sample many of their different meals and I’ve enjoyed all of them.
Not only is the food good, but the atmosphere is fun. The walls and ceilings are adorned with all types of objects, from sewing machines to pots. They serve several Fuller brews for beer lovers. If you are in the area, I would recommend this pub. I give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
