The Kentish Canteen was fairly busy for a Wednesday night! This is one of my locals, although truth be told, I haven't been here very much. To my surprise, the place has improved since my last visit about 6 months ago. The interior was cosy and welcoming, the staff friendly and attentive.

Either I just got lucky or I was high on the euphoria of recently moving to K-Town from Balham (no offence, Balhamites). But having been back a few times since, it's never lived up to expectations. The food is on the pricey side for the area, and frankly you...more
