The Empress of IndiaLodged on the boundary of Victoria Park, The Empress of India is the latest venue from Tom and Ed Martin the brothers behind Dockland's much celebrated gastropub, The Gun. The pub pays homage to the Victorian era with hand-painted silk wallpaper rendering scenes of the Raj. The decor is neatly done - a pewter bar, Chesterfield banquettes and dark beech tables and chairs and definitely aimed at diners rather than drinkers. An excellent seasonal British menu included such meaty main courses as roast haunch of venison, but it was our starters that impressed most. A confection of preserved pig and foie gras combined satisfying greasiness with wholesome flavours, while delicately-flavoured merguez beef sausages were a perfect accompaniment to very, very fresh squid salad. An impressive achievement that is well worth the trek into Hackney's public transport blackspot.
