Rose Review

What likely situation would find you at The Rose?

Well, you’re there because someone on the social committee at work has hired the upstairs room for a staff function solely because it’s the only bar in London where you can see the Tate Britain AND the Houses of Parliament through the same window. No kidding? But what about the cosy gratification of an all-year-round gas fire warming your buttocks or the sinful boudoir appeal of sultry red wallpaper or the jaw-droppingly generous portions slapped on a sharing platter? Oh yeh, them too.

Sometime later you’re there again. A close, yet questionable, friend is keen for an electro-dance hard-breaks ‘all-nighter’ at Hidden across the road. It’s apparently a tradition to kick things off with a few pints of unadventurous draught beer, a bit of coarse banter and a music policy that fluctuates through time and style at a rate Bill & Ted couldn’t even randomise. You agree not to get the burger and chips, though, as the burger van close-by is far more popular and palatable.

Looking further into the crystal ball of truth, we see you there yet again. This time the eclectic atmosphere, the initmate mood lighting and the unusual status of being almost completely bereft of patrons makes The Rose the perfect location for your clandestine liason with a person who shalt remain nameless. As the wine is far too expensive it’s a relief to your skinflint relexes that the cocktails are abundant in range yet minimal in cost (only £3.50 Sunday to Wednesday).

And finally we see you there a fourth time. On a stakeout. Waiting patiently for a particular employee of Her Majesty’s Government Offices to appear from Castle Lego, otherwise known as the Mi5 building. Whilst you’re there you test out the “glorified cod n’ chips” menu and endure the painfully slow, yet friendly, staff service. You’ve got a while to wait, though, so it doesn’t matter so much. It’s a lonely job, lonely like a child’s mitten hanging limply from the branch of a municipal park tree.

You have, of course, done all, or none, of these things and will no doubt do them again, for the first time, in the future.

Basically, a room with a view, and cheap cocktails. Otherwise, 7 out of 10
