This place is great for a few drinks however the menu is slightly limited. You can always get a table or a seat and the atmosphere is good as there is usually some sort of sport on. Menu is slightly expensive for what it is though.

I live on the other side of town, but have walked past The Standard lots of times and always thought it looked like quite an inviting place. So when we were in the neighbourhood and in need of a quick lunch on Sunday it seemed like a good choice.

We weren't disappointed. Their "Not The Standard Burger" lived up to its name. The burger was excellent. Cooked perfectly - a bit pink in the middle which left it very juicy and tasty. Makes a change from over-done tasteless and dry burgers you get elsewhere. And it was in a really nice soft bun. There were the usual extra toppings (bacon, mushrooms etc) for 50p each. The salad was also better than you'd normally get with a burger in the pub. Really tasty dressing and not too much onion. The chips were very average, however.

My dining partner had a chicken club sandwich which was good, apparently, but she conceded that I had chosen more wisely.

Service was very efficient and friendly. Not really any reason why it shouldn't have been though as the pub was pretty quiet.

Two meals, a soft drink and a pint of IPA came in at under £20.

I'll certainly go back if I'm in the area again and in need of a feed.

Just a pub that does generic pub food, very little to mark it out against many similar establishments. No better than a Wetherspoons and not as cheap.

On the plus side you will probably get a table whatever time it is.
