From Kevin Murray to Hank Williams to a luminescent Jesus, the Standard icons watch over every inch of this slowly pulsating pub, where patrons share common interests of good food, country music and facial hair. The ever-changing specials board boasts adventurous deviations from the usual pub grub, such as seared scallops on a smooth celeriac puree with black pudding. The regular menu faithfully delivers all-time favourites done well: mountainous chilli-bean enchiladas smothered in sizzling cheese, guacamole and sour cream, or towering burgers in a sea of golden thick-cut chips.
