The Draper's Arms
Set back off the main drag of Upper Street, The Draper’s Arms always has a great atmosphere but thanks to its airy rooms, high ceilings and outdoor space, it doesn’t feel crowded. With rotating ales, including Wandle and Harvey’s Sussex Best and a range of lagers and wines, it’s a good pub just to drink in, though food is what The Draper’s Arms excels at. The menus are seasonal and feature a mix of classic and inventive dishes like chicken and girolle pie and octopus with creamed sweetcorn, bacon and green chilli. Their Sunday sharing roasts are well spending a long lunch over too.
