Excellent value, really nice pub and great service. My lamb rendang could have done with more sauce and the pork buns are pork belly which the menu wasn’t clear about - but the food was delicious - will definitely be coming back.

We were in London for a weekend break. We had 2 meals here - one on a Friday evening - pre-theatre - and again on the Saturday evening. Early Friday evening it was very busy with people leaving work and having a drink - so, if you don't like a noisy, vibrant scene, then its not for you. However, we also had a meal on the Saturday night (we were staying there -fabulous) and it was totally different. It was a lot quieter - the clientele coming for food as well as drink. The food on both occasions was very good. We had the lamb curry, shrimp and Pad Thai as well as the Sharing Platter. The flavours were lovely - if not a little sweet on the Pad Thai. The price was great for London for the quality of the food and drink. We did thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere and the ambience on both occasions. The staff are marvellous and couldn't do enough for us - very friendly and obliging. We will return.

Really nice cozy pub atmosphere. Friendly staff. The upscaled Thai food is a bit hit and miss.

We didn't actually eat in the end as we didn't want Thai (we should have checked / our fault) but it looked and smelled wonderful!

Didn’t know food was Asian- which was a great surprise- had chicken laksa- pretty good!
Was quiet in there which was good and quite small place- but food very good. Recommend it!

We booked the Grafton Arms as a friend recommended to us for the food and cocktails combo, I had the tiger prawn tempura and duck rice, food was fresh and super tasty, not greasy as usually duck dishes are. Cocktails were pretty good too, loved the grapefruit margarita paired with the duck. Overall I had such a fantastic time , food was delicious and service was delightful. Kudos.

Another excellent meal at this lovely pub in Fitzrovia. Great value the pan Asian with great flavours (the pad Thai is my absolute fave!). Warm and friendly atmosphere and really good beers and craft lager. Highly recommended!

Was excited when this place reopened — menu looked amazing. While service is excellent and the refit is really nice, the food is really not great. Watery, tasteless, just kind of wrong. A shame because if it delivered on the promise of the menu it would be A++

We arrived 10 minuets late to be told rather rudely the kitchen closes in 15 mins and we close at 10pm !
We expected the same atmosphere at least of the other restaurants in the group .
We turned around and left definately would never go back .

I’m not really a pub kind of person but this place is one of my hidden gems. They serve great food accompanied by the warm, friendly staff. It’s a must!
