What was previously The Rob Roy, a corner pub popular with Scottish ex-pats, has been rebooted as the Royal Standard: a washed-brick San Francisco loft-inspired cocktail bar on two floors. Some of the fixes listed Tequila Sunrise, Sex On The Beach are decidedly old hat, but hey, Caipirinha, Margarita, and Negroni are always in fashion (£8.50, cheaper during happy hour). Lounge on chesterfields over a pint of Estrella, Hoegaarden or Greene King Yardbird, or choose from more than a dozen wines by the glass (from £4.20 for Spanish Sauvignon Blanc or Tempranillo). The chef seems keen on retro crowd-pleasers, so you could start a meal with spicy BBQ wings or halloumi and vegetable skewers (with rocket pesto), followed by mains that might include tagliatelle, mushroom and spinach in a cream sauce (£10), steak and chips, or chicken escalope Milanese. Otherwise, fill up on nachos or sharing platters (meat or vegetarian).
