Royal Sovereign in Clapton, London Pub Review and Details

In this case however it's been completely revived by a couple of local guys who took it over a couple of years ago.

Despite a recent refurbishment the decor is still interesting, with plenty of 1970s style exposed brickwork and a pool room at the back.

The crowd is genuinely mixed - trendy young Stokey residents, older locals, punks and eccentrics; one or two local characters have been known to be somewhat 'over-exuberant', but you have to take the rough with the smooth sometimes.

Its all a little rough around the edges, but if you add the friendliest service in E5, a lively pub quiz, a great choice of tunes and barbecues in the back garden, this becomes a proper, solid local.

Review analysis
drinks   food  

A spacious, colourful and welcoming pub with a heated decked rear garden and roaring fires, The Sov, as it's affectionately known, is part of Brighton's history and a prime drinking spot for young and old alike; a healthy mix of tradition and progress.

This is what proper pubs feel like!

Tom Griffiths new project, Flank, opened residency at the Royal Sovereign in Brighton in early September.

Tom isn't afraid to let vegetables take pride of place on his plates too, pickling and fermenting seasonal ingredients so they can last all year.

A traditional pub roast is served every Sunday, along with pub snacks all week.
