The scene: This pub has been through a few changes during recent years but it’s current set-up is its best yet. Warm, with brick and wood interior, the Barrow Boy has friendly staff, an eclectic Fulham clientele and a spacious 60-person roof-garden – a rarity in London.
The grub: Good gastro-pub fare with a menu that changes daily. Try the squid or Asian duck salads or the calves liver with chorizo and potatoes – delicious. The Barrow Boy offers 25 per cent off your food bill on Tuedays and is part
of the Times’ Perfect Sundays voucher scheme for value meals. Take advantage.
Behind the bar: All the usual faves, in bottles (from £3.10) and on tap (from £3.40).
Bill please: Two meals and wine for under £50.
Verdict: Good spot for a weekend session.
