Named for the lavish dramas popular in Tudor times, this Old Street Spoons looks tiny but goes very far back.
Adorned with Spoons trademark pink flowers, we were very excited to enter and we were greeted with two surprises, firstly, that Spoons are apparently selling pizza.
And secondly, Innis and Gunn, the refreshing deceptively alcoholic (6.6%) lager we enjoyed many moons ago at Penderel’s Oak near Holborn.
£3.99 here, we enjoyed our first drink in a booth and second by the glorious open windows.
This Spoons was oddly charming and prompted us to remember our scale, scummy Spoons, standard Spoons and Superior.
This was definitely above Standard but not within the lofty parameters of being Superior, but definitely not too far off.
Our life’s new purpose is to try a Spoons pizza. We shall report our verdict.
