Harden's survey result
“A great view of the river and very competent cuisine” makes this would-be Elizabethan tavern – on the first floor of Shakespeare’s Globe theatre – “a delightful find on the tourist trail”. Chef Allan Pickett sticks sensibly to modern British rather than cod-historical cooking.
The faux-Elizabethan tavern connected to Shakespeare’s Globe theatre (on the first floor) has “great views over the river to St Paul’s”, and food – by chef Allan Pickett – that is “imaginative, seasonal, locally sourced and well executed without being pretentious”. Top Tip: “gentleman’s afternoon tea (beef sliders, Scotch egg and a tankard of beer instead of bubbles) is outstanding”.
“Wonderful river and City views” are the obvious draw to this mock-historic tavern attached to Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. The food has had its ups and downs in recent years, but the hiring of chef Allan Pickett (after the demise of Piquet, RIP) seems to be improving matters, with reports of “some deceptively good cooking going on here”. Top Tip – “arrive after theatregoers have gone in!”
“Fabulous views of the Thames and London skyline” make this first-floor venue at Shakespeare’s Globe “much more than just a pre-theatre restaurant”. But while fans say it’s a “wonderful” all-rounder, reports of “slow service” and “ordinary food” are persistent complaints.
