Found on Tanners Hill in the Deptford area of London, just a stone’s throw away from the Deptford and New Cross train stations, Royal Standard is a bar and restaurant that provides a fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle.
People visit for the fantastic selection of drinks, but stay for the fabulous food offering at the bar and restaurant, where guests are treated to a wonderful array of European delicacies, as well as a British staple or two.
Now inviting tastecard members in to enjoy all of the exquisite fare available at a superb discount when they call in advance with their card, Royal Standard delivers a casual dining experience that is sure to be repeated.
The passionate and creative Head Chef at Royal Standard, who has gained experience working under two Michelin starred chefs, has developed a concise yet diverse menu that promises to cater for any palate. From the glorious chargrilled squid and chorizo combo to the scrumptious pan-fried chicken livers and the delicious grilled halloumi, the chic little eatery is able to present a range of light backs that are equally as enjoyable as small plates in a tapas style repast as they are a starter in a more indulgent feast.
Where the diversity is really shown however, is in the main course selection, where a divine fillet of sea bass sits in delightful contrast to the succulent grilled lamb cutlets. The homemade cheeseburger, the mouth-watering rack of barbecue ribs, and the tender 8oz rib eye steak can all be seen to wholeheartedly satisfy the more carnivorous members of the party, while the meat averse are sure to enjoy the wild mushroom risotto. As for the particularly traditional British diner, the beer battered cod, which is served with the expected hand-cut chips and mushy peas, is a certain winner.
Combining the charm of the Victorian Public House, which was established in the building in 1787, with the food of today and the vibrant atmosphere expected of such a venue in England’s capital city, a meal at Royal Standard is not soon forgotten.
Please note: The tastecard discount is not available on Bank Holidays or Celebration days, including Valentines Day, Mothering Sunday, Father's Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
