The Easton reviews

By Andrew M.

The Easton has surly bar staff, expensive food, no snacks except expensive olives or expensive almonds, no ale. Otherwise, great.

By L.

Owner changed last year. I stopped by for another great roast - left very disappointed. The quality of the food has dropped, more like a standard roast you'd get in any pub. Too bad.

By L.

I've never had a sunday roast as good as the one served up at the Easton. It's pricey but the portions are huge and the food is amazing. I've brought friends on several occasions and everyone leaves extremely satisfied with the quality of the meal. Having said that the service is often half baked and I really don't like how they organize their sunday "sittings", meaning you have a time limit at your table. You can avoid this by eating at the later sitting. I've only visited once at night for tapas and I found the experience mildly irritating due to how loud it was and the slow bar service.

By Michael J.

I'm surprised to see good reviews for this place- having been there a few times, I assumed it would be universally panned. It's a hole - the food might be good, but the service is so unpleasant as to be insufferable. Clockwatching wannabes who resent working in a pub so much that they see nothing wrong with smoking at the bar and taking glasses away half full at 10.45pm. We left, with the sarcastic abuse ringing in our ears, feeling robbed and depressed.

The Easton is tucked away and is slightly seperate from the busy Exmouth Market and it's decent selection of bars and pubs, like a naughty schoolboy sent outside of the classroom to think about his behaviour. However, if The Easton were a schoolboy he'd be top of the class and on his way to Pub University.

The Easton also rates highly in the popularity stakes as every time I visit the place it's rammed full of people, mostly in their mid-20's or early 30's. A hugely popular place for a drink after work on a Friday and many customers arrive with the intention of heading on seomwehre else but end up staying due to the fact that this place has plaenty of seating and a decent selection of drinks.

This place has it all. A great, welcoming atomspehere, a good selection of beers, ample seating inside for large broups and a handful of picnic tables outside for drinkers to sit and and watch the world go by on the street outside. Prices are pretty much run of the mill for this part of London so you won't be hitting the overdraft hard to drink in a place that offers all the good thing listed above.

All in all, The Easton is a popular place to drink but has retained it's charm meaning that drinkers often return time and time again.

By L.

I live down the road from The Easton and I must say their Sunday lunch is fantastic. Yummy roasts and excellent vegetarian options as well. The environment is very relaxed, the decor is lovely and the seats are comfortable. Friday nights at The Easton are a bit more of a party atmosphere (including DJ) when they serve a tapas menu that is a bit expensive but very good. Overall, the food is a bit pricey at The Easton but you are paying for the large portions, the wonderfully fresh ingredients and the skill with which the dishes are compiled. Yummy.

Tucked away on the end of Easton Street, The Easton gastro pub is well hidden and offers a slice of relative tranquillity in this busy area of the city. If it’s lunch, dinner or just some casual drinks you’re after then The Easton serves as a sociable change from the norm.

The Venue
The focal point of Easton Street, the pub sits on the corner at the furthest end away from the bustling Farringdon Road and Exmouth Market. Have no fears about finding the Easton however – the pub’s bold sign can be seen easily from a distance. Occupying the corner building, it's essentially one large room, surrounded by front facing windows letting light drizzle into the dining area. It keeps a traditional feel, with large red sofas and smart vintage-style wooden tables and chairs. There is also an open, brick fireplace, something of a rarity in London’s pubs. The bar is a typical long wooden surface, which keeps the punters at bay.

The Atmosphere
Due to its location, The Easton is not as densely populated as other pubs and bars in the area, particularly those in the crowded Exmouth Market. However, this arguably works in the pub’s favour, with customers returning for the hidden, lazy, feel to the place. Being in the midst of housing brings in regulars who adorn the corner booths and stalls during day time, making The Easton reminiscent of a traditional village pub. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu, table service is quick and cutlery is promptly relayed throughout the different courses. The restaurant has no shortage of space, which is a plus point in this highly competitive area.

The Food
One of the reasons the pub is full of dining tables is surely down to the focus on food. The food at The Easton is not your typical pub grub; a regularly changing selection of meals that caters for a wide range of tastes and preferences. For a light bite it is hard to look past the grilled tiger prawn and scallop skewers (£8). These are served with a fresh salsa and salad, which complements the fish perfectly. The soup changes frequently, and cauliflower soup (£5) goes hand in hand with the beautiful, daily home-baked bread, which includes paprika among other spices and herbs. Those wanting something to simply accompany their pint can look toward the bar snacks menu – there are no cheesy chips here, but the pub offers an eclectic selection from pork pie (£2.50), vegetable empanadas (£2) or the deliciously crispy hot ham hock croquettes (£5), which are served with an aioli dip.

As far as mains go, The Easton presents a very diverse selection. The classic pub meal of a burger is revamped, offering the pork and chorizo burger (£10.75) served with salsa and hearty hand-cut chips. The lamb and stilton pie (£13) proves to be a very popular choice, served with a creamy parsnip mash. Another popular dish is the grilled Cumberland sausage and mash (£9.75) served with curly kale and onion gravy.

Of course, the desserts at the Easton are also inviting, the warm chocolate and hazelnut brownie (£4.50) is served with cooling vanilla ice cream. For a more fruity taste, the apple and mixed berry crumble (£4.50) comes with a sweet and sticky calvados custard.

The Drink
The Easton boasts a healthy drinks selection, with Czech beer Staropramen (£3.90), Hoegarden (£4.60) Becks Vier and Kronenbourg 1664 (both £3.80) all on draught. For those wanting a nice cold bottled beer to refresh the palate, Corona, Peroni and San Miguel (£3.70) are all stocked. Both white and red wine prices range from £15-£30, providing an extensive selection that won’t break the bank. Among others, Belvedere vodka, Grey Goose vodka, Tanqueray 10 gin, Janneau cognac, Patron tequila, Mount Gay rum and Black Label whisky are all sold, perhaps prolonging your stay at the Easton for more of a session.

The Last Word
This unseen gastro pub makes for a useful light lunch venue - whether alone or as part of a group – and if you are itching to get off the hectic city streets then The Easton is a handy retreat. The pub uses the large space well and the contemporary art for sale on the walls acts as a modern installation in this nostalgic village-type pub.
