Town Hall Tavern

A Friday after-work drinks and pub meal at the Town Hall Tavern. I like a sense of history in my pubs and this one is no exception. Sitting just across the road from the Law Courts it first opened its doors in 1926. Apparently when it first opened the landlord partitioned the pub so that the Law sat drinking on one side of while the the accused were on the other.

Of course nowadays its a smart gastro-pub owned by brewer Timothy Taylor. It prides itself on locally sourced, traditional food yet the specials board tonight also promised some delicious sounding Mediterranean type dishes.
Focusing on the traditional we had the home-made scampi with dripping cooked chips, a chunky home-made tartare sauce and peas. Oh and the fish and chips was pretty darn good as well.
The layout of the pub is smart yet relaxed just the way a modern pub should be.  A bit similar to the Veritas inside - think subdued colours, and a lot of wood.

I want this fridge!
