Fulham: Harwood Arms
This gastropub in Fulham really does live up to its claim of bringing ‘the country to town’. Smart and sassy diners - who include some of London’s top chefs - tuck into autumnal dishes like a mixed board of wild game from Berkshire as a starter, followed by grouse from North Yorkshire served with buttered greens, potato and malt. When it’s booked up, we sit at the bar for the likes of scotch egg freshly cooked inside a venison and sausage case, a bar snack that has achieved legendary status.
