Canteen serves up the perfect package

Piehunter went to Canteen at the Royal Festival Hall in London last night, a venue that prides itself on its traditional English food. It didn’t disappoint.

Every day Canteen serves two pies of the day and we thoroughly enjoyed the steak and kidney, served with creamy mash and some crunchy greens.

The pie could have been bigger, but included a delightful soft pastry, thick gravy and good quality meat. It also left room for dessert.

Desserts included apple crumble with a vanilla custard, a chocolate brownie sundae and rice pudding. A tasty cheese platter was squeezed in too.

Sitting in a nice booth seat, we also enjoyed a broad range of interesting and sometimes punchy ales, including Black Cat from Morehouse and Dr Okell’s IPA from the Isle of Man.

Recommended, but do book ahead.
