Mug House is a pub hidden away under London Bridge, just round the corner from Borough Market. It served a great range of wines and beers and also a brilliant menu of British classic food dishes.
My friend and I decided to meet there for dinner one evening after work. Luckily she booked a table for us, as it was really busy and on arrival we were seated at this cute little table by the kitchen.
Mug House is quite quirky, but you would imagine it to be, as it’s hidden away under London Bridge. Inside there are parts which are quite uneven and narrow and then there are little nooks and crannies for you to sit in and enjoy your food or drinks in peace.
The menu was mouth-wateringly good. Offering up classics such as bangers and mash, steak, burgers and a wild mushroom risotto. I order a superfood salad, which came with quinoa, halloumi, edamame beans and avocado. I asked the waiter what leave were served in the salad as I’m not keen on the peppery taste of rocket. He asked the chef who confirmed the salad normally comes with rocket in it (I knew it!) but he could prepare me one without rocket – result! My friend ordered the fish and chips.
Whilst we were waiting for our dinner, we enjoyed a drink. I had a small glass of their house red wine which was called Davy’s No. 1, which was a tasty French wine. My friend ordered a Meantime wheat beer.
When the food arrived it looked delicious. My salad looked so inviting and so I dived in immediately. Neither meals were a disappointment, they were both as good as they looked.
All in all, it was a great dinner out. Although Mug House was really busy, it didn’t feel crowded and we didn’t feel rushed. The food was excellent as was the service. I would definitely recommend this place either for a drink, as they have a fantastic selection or for a bite to eat.
My salad was priced at £12.95, my friend’s fish and chips at £14.50 and drinks were just over £5 each. Great value for great food in London.
