Amersham Arms SE14 6TY

Date: Sunday 18th April, 2011
Choice: Ellen
Who was there: Heather, Justin, Claire, Ellen, Angel and guest Tarryn.

Walking into the place, Angel ordered a pint and as he carried to the table it slipped from his hands and covered the floor, the nice bloke behind the bar just poured another, nice one, thanks.
The Amersham Arms from the outside looks like a pub for students, which it kind of is as it is close to Goldsmiths College. The interior is full of eclectic things including some really old barometers. Unfortunately it smells like cleaning products and the mens toilet is a bit crap.
The place is absolutely brilliant value for money, a really generous serving of a tasty roast. Knock-your-socks-off horseradish and big, gorgeous Yorkshires. We had Pork, Chicken and Beef and also the vegetarian option – homemade butternut squash, mushroom and spinach tart. The Roasts are only £8. Amazing, even if the pork was a little watery, but the great crackling made up for it.
Claire was impressed they had the thought to not place the tart in the gravy so it did not get soggy.
The only negative of the roasts – the gravy is quite watery.
For dessert we shared a deep fried Mars bar. Ellen assured us it would be sweet – as a Scottish delicacy (!). It was served with ice cream and was actually really nice, but a little rich.
