The Morgan Arms, 42 Morgan Street, E3 5AA

There’s nothing more luxurious than a leisurely lunch on a weekday. The newly-found Spring sun dapples the interior of this characterful pub and we are soon seated and ready for food.

Muted paintwork and bare wood provide a relaxed feel in the bar area, whilst the dining room setting is sharpened by stained-glass windows and linen and glassware pristinely laying the tables.

This is a nice little neighbourhood boozer that prides itself on a warm welcome alongside and well-thought through food menu that transitions through from lunch to dinner with sophistication

The Silver Fox who knows no bounds, swiftly orders a pint of cider whilst I demurely stick to a ginger ale. There’s a bit of a wait for our mains but it’s worth it. the Fox’s fish pie is piping hot and filled to the brim with salmon, prawns and white fish. The sauce is well-seasoned and flavourful without knocking out the more delicate flavours of fish. This comes with a side of your choice so isn’t bad value at £14.

My fish and chips was again generous in portion and came with minted peas and tartare sauce that if not homemade, did a very good impression of it. Chips were fried to perfection and would leave even the greediest of people sated (in fact, cut to evening neither the Silver Fox or I could muster up an appetite, which is unheard of).

For pudding we shared a decent treacle tart with mascarpone: light in pastry but dense in sweetness, this was a real street and gave us the Filipino to get home before an afternoon nap became compulsory.

Service was friendly and the owner talked us through the rotating art display they have on the walls.

Two ate like kings for a little over £40 in total, including service and coffee. Not bad at all and we’ll definitely be back to try their legendary Sunday Roasts.
