In 2002, The Cumberland Arms re-opened as an independently-run gastropub. Since then, it has built up quite a reputation among local residents, offices and a few reviewers too. The aim is to serve good beer (including real ales), an exciting Mediterranean menu and a wine list of some 30 wines. The menu offers a daily changing selection of Italian, Spanish and North African dishes. There is seating on the pavement area down the side of the pub.

So nice - I mean the staff is SO NICE. I enjoyed a delciious pasta dinner (peas and prosciutto), and had a couple of ciders. And while I was solo, I didn't feel conspicuous or out of place.
Also, free wifi!more
Excellent traditional neighborhood pub walking distance to a busy interchange. If you were at the Olympia for a trade show I highly recommend walking half a block to this location. The food is delicious, daily pub menu changes. Great selection of beers ailes and insiders.more

Embarrassing large sandwich. So came here for a drink at the start of a pub crawl and needed some food. First of all, this place is darling. Nice warm feeling pub. Very large wine list.
I needed a quick bite and went for a sandwich.
It was the biggest sandwich I have ever seen. It was a whoa moment for everyone that saw it. It was half a loaf of focaccia that could have fed a family...more

Sure I was shivering, but that didn't stop me from wanting to take my pint outside to enjoy #1 Cumberland Arms' truly glorious patio space and #2 the imaginary lingering summer that never existed.
This classy proper pub keeps CAMRA happy with three real ales, and I sampled (um, I mean noticed...) a large...more
