The Beaten Path, Kennington
A self-styled 'Bar & Restaurant' this one may be, but we're a long way from named chefs and the latest gastropub trends. We're talking a solid, old-fashioned Irish pub here: a well-stocked bar, fittings harking back to the Emerald Isle, all looked after by an amiable landlord. A decent enough drinking spot anywhere in London, but for the Walworth Road it's a Godsend. We didn't manage to chance the 'restaurant' part of the equation (tables for dining at the back of the pub) but given the homely country kitchen-style dresser, we'd imagine to be as traditional as the rest of the pub.
