Conceived at the turn of the century (2000, since you ask), Blush is now a stalwart of the Stokey gay scene (it's run by one half of the duo behind the still-missed Due South, RIP). The bar is cosy, friendly and undeniably scarlet inside, and has some of the hardest working fridges in London - their bottled lager is always refreshingly freezing, which means you always end up drinking far more than you agreed with yourself at the beginning of the evening. Or maybe that's just us. Blush also has a well-stocked jukebox - equally likely to churn out Kylie or the Killers - and its staff and locals are welcoming; prop up the bar and you're sure to strike up a conversation. But beer and banter isn't all the place has to offer - it also features local artists on its walls, and offers weekly poker, quiz and karaoke nights, as well as open mic events, a pool table downstairs and a sizeable beer garden out back for catching some rays. Equally though, if you just fancy a pint in pink surroundings, this is the place.

Superb Sunday lunches! Was so impressed when friends suggested we try this having heard about the new menu. I was definitely not disappointed! The meat menu was impressive and the vegetarian choices, which were all homemade were superb. I can highly recommend the puy lentil en croute with spiced vegetarian sausage! Another plus was being served individual gravy jugs for our meal which meant we could pick where we put it on the plate (ok, call me retentive if you must!). We are returning this week to sample the homemade steak, Guinness & mushroom puff as well as the roast pork with crackling 7 homemade apple sauce (yum!). Our dinners were huge and included roast pots, parsnips, fresh veg and homemade Yorkshires. Can't say enough about this little gem in Stokey. With prices of £7.50 - £8.50 for main courses and £2.50 for deserts my only worry is that we will have to book well in advance to get a table. Oh, and they serve from 2pm - 8pm. Very sensible for the day after the night before!
