A trip to Broadway Market isn’t complete without ducking into The Dove for a swift Belgian beer or two.
The Dove is the London home of Belgium beer. Whether you’re into pilsners, gueuzes or trappists, you’ll be spoilt for choice by a tome-like drinks list. Great bottles bolster the range on draught, and beers are far from limited to Belgian – a full spread of lagers and ales extends its reach as far as the USA. It goes without saying that moules marinieres does a storming trade, although there are plenty of carb-heavy pub classics for those in for a session.
The layout is maze-like and the pub reaches back and beyond, although that won’t make finding a seat any easier in this perennially popular drinking spot.
Best Bars tip: Head to Dove on market day – that way you’re guaranteed a buzzing atmosphere to rival that found in any Brussels bar.
