Fleet Street: Last journalists

Fleet Street pubs

American Pub; not British. The menu had a few things on it which surprised me; not that they don't have the usual Fish & Chips; Bangers & Mash; Shepherd's Pie, etc. It was what they did with them ... Garlic Aioli? Caramelized onions and sauteed Brussels sprouts? Hot Mustard Aioli and Rosemary gravy? I think I might describe this more as, "Pub fare American-fusion style".

The Shepherd's Pie was truly abysmal - runny, very cheesy (note: there is NO cheese in or on traditional Shepherd's Pie - that is an American addition), flavor was off, and the presentation was far from appetizing!

Piccadilly Fish & Chips were good; chips were somewhat soggy. Good bits of fish done with a nice balance of crispy and moist.

Beverage selection was very good; we had Harp, Fuller's, and of course, checked out their pull on a Guinness. Did well, will give them higher marks there.

Service was fair, food service a bit slow (was not a busy evening), and paying took a bit long.

All-in-all, if you really want a "pub" experience - food, drink, atmosphere, I would not recommend Fleet Street Pub; it simply does not, "cut the mustard".
