If you're looking for a slice of Britain in Brisbane, the city's newest watering hole has you covered. Think English-style food and booze, just like you'd find across the seas. Think Old Blighty's public houses of yesteryear combined with the epitome of the modern London bar scene. Think gastropub.
Celebrating the location that provided its inspiration in its moniker, London Fields champions British fare of the eating and drinking variety. And where better to set up shop than the inner-city spot with its own UK connotations: West End.
Don't go looking for the pub in the heart of the suburb, though, with London Fields calling the corner of Montague Road and Raven Street home. While the area might not be as happening as the rest of West End at present, a quick glimpse at the surrounding development sites indicates that that's all about to change.
On the food side of things, expect nose to tail offerings that span roasted morsels of your favourite meats, as well as burgers and chips-style bar food, all served up for lunch and dinner every day of the week. When it comes to booze, the usual craft brews and some not-so-usual cocktails are planned, though currently it's a BYO affair while the proprietors wait for their liquor license to come through.
London Fields is the latest venture from Bonnie Shearston and Tom Sanceau, who already have Public, Red Hook and Coppa Spuntino in their stable of Brisbane eateries. Combine the gastropub's theme with its pedigree, and it looks set to be another winner.
