The Tiger- good pub grub!

The Tiger in Camberwell is one of my favourite pubs in London. An oasis of warmth, good beers and friendly people. I have been many times, but mostly just use it as a watering hole before heading out. Last night, however, we decided to go along for some dinner - it was pub grub we were after and the Tiger's menu has always looked interesting.

The menu is a step up from the usual pub fayre, but thankfully has not strayed so far from this as to think it is something it is not. We started with a duck liver pate, cornichons, red onion chutney and some toast. The pate was smooth, the chutney sweet and delicious, but the slices of toast too few. All it needed was a few more pieces of bread to mop up the chutney and pate and this would have been very good indeed.

The Fashionista went for the sausages and beetroot mash. The sausages were okay, nothing special, the gigantic mound of beetroot mash was as it should be.

I had a cheese burger, tempted by the fact that what was once a lowly staple has been taken to a higher level by places like The Lucky Chip, Honest Burgers and Meat Liquor! Unfortunately the Tiger did not quite hit those highs. Homemade it was, but the meat was just a little overcooked, dry and underseasoned. The chips were great, however.

For the price you pay, the food at the Tiger is very good and certainly a step up from the general standard of pub food you get in London.  Weatherspoons this is not, I would definitely go back!
