The Elderfield is one of those pubs that feels like it pops out of nowhere as you walk down the road. It’s five minutes from Lower Clapton or Chatsworth Road and it’s a spot to spend your entire Sunday afternoon in. The roasts are tasty and extremely good value - the roast chicken in particular is lovely - and the interior has got that wood-y and fire-y feel. A combination which is very homely when kept under control. Slump on a sofa after you’ve finished your last potato and get comfortable. It’s not hard to.
