Morgan Arms, Bow
The gentrified Morgan Arms is pretty much a fixture in these parts, having had a bit of an up and down career in days of yore, the Morgan Arms, perhaps inevitably, became a gastropub and it's been that way for the last few years. We were a little surprised it took so long for this to happen, there's always been a good few posh houses around here, but eventually, thanks to Geronimo Inns, the Morgan stopped being a dive and became a decent enough gastropub (so much so, it was the Evening Standard's pub of year in 2005). Geronimo no longer tuns the pub, but it must be said the food and drink is still of a good standard - there's decent beer on the hand pumps plus a couple of ciders - Symonds and Old Rosie - and a good wine list. Food is the main thing here, though, and you'll often find the bar populated by people waiting to take their tables in the eating section. The pub can get somewhat clamourous towards the weekend, but generally, especially earlier in the week, the Morgan is a pretty relaxed experience.
