I've visited Kentish Canteen on several occasions for brunch, which is well cooked regular brekkie fare. Very delicious, (although the salmon in the Eggs Royale is somewhat flavourless flaked salmon, not smoked salmon) but quite expensive if you want to add anything (£3 for a few slices of avocado?!)

I'm writing this about the basement cocktail bar, Shebeen, which doesn't seem to have a separate listing.

I've gone twice - once with my partner and once with a small group - and both times scored a private side room, so points for that. The decor is lovely and it really does feel like a drinking den.

However, I'm deducting points because of my cocktail confusion. The first time I went, I...more
