This week’s quest brought us to The Perseverance, which is at the southern end of Camden, not far from Russell Square. We’ve been doing a bit of neighborhood research in preparation for our next move in London, and this area has appealed to us based on its proximity to the City and the fact that it isn’t dead empty on the weekends.
Representing for the cause today were just myself and my husband, Darren. The Perseverance didn’t have a Sunday Roast, but we managed nonetheless.
The menu looked pretty good, and it offered standard pub fare. Unfortunately, the picnic tables outside were taken when we first arrived, otherwise we would have had a much sunnier lunch.
We went for the Bangers & Mash and the Fishcakes.
The Bangers & Mash were much enjoyed, and I liked the presentation of the fishcakes on salad. Pub food can often be heavy, and these Fishcakes absolutely hit the spot.
The food was good, but it wasn’t extraordinary in any way, which is reflected in our scores.
The score: 3.25 yums
breakdown of scores:
Darren: 3.5 yums (bangers)
Franc: 3 yums (fishcakes)
