Though their promotional literature declares 'Bar & Restaurant' the much undervalued word 'pub' summarises the Union Tavern just as well. Sure, there's an element of the gastro to this one, what with the wooden tables and floorboards and one part of the interior designated as the nominal 'eating' area. Though what with The Eagle not a million miles away, it's not surprising the pub has opted for that route. What does come as a surprise is the (relatively) inexpensive cost of the food (all mains under a 10 when we last looked in) and the harmonious feel of the place. For once, the bare wood interior seems a wise option, as it enhances all the etched mirrors and chandeliers. Gastropub meets Gin Palace, you could say. As for the essentials, the Greene King IPA was pleasant enough - we'd gone for Doombar first, but the barman informed us it hadn't settled yet. We always like to see good cellarmanship. And as for the wine list... well, with over 80 wines to choose from you won't be mumbling "house red" and hoping for the best. One added attraction: there's a natural camber to the place (what with it being built on a slope) so even if you're on the soft drinks, you'll be lurching to the toilets like a tipsy sailor at daybreak.
