The Sovereign takes its Belgian theme seriously. All of the beers here – 50 on tap and 300 more in bottles – are Belgian or Belgian-style. The top floor is done up like an old Flemish beer hall, with long wooden tables and stag's-head chandeliers, while the 1st floor is more modern. Mussels and rabbit stew help soak up the alcohol.
Note the bar is set back from the road; follow the lanterns that lead along the alleyway to the door.
