The Nightingale Description

Now, I grew up in the country, where country pubs abound. But I never saw a hanging basket cascading from their unpolluted gables to rival the monsters London’s smoggy boozers boast – and The Nightingale’s just about take the bloomin’ biscuit. Blooming they are. Massive. I’d say don’t walk underneath. Skirt around. Feathery rainbow colours are misleading - freshly watered they’d near as kill you if one landed on your bonce. It’s rumoured the landlord talks to the bedding plants. And it’s that charming, personal touch that’s the secret of this hidden gem of a boozer too. It’s salt of the earth

– a quintessential local without trying too hard. Don’t expect banging tunes or Sky Sports. Expect chatter – and not just to the foliage – a warm welcome in both the main and saloon bars, an excellent ale selection, comforting British pub grub – although they also venture exotic with a mean Thai green curry - and quizzes. Oh, and Irish music once a week. Naturally. It’s well worn, like a pair of slippers. You could liken a visit to having a drink in someone’s front room. But it’s a pub – so it’s better. Wear shoes.
