    Booked table for my family for my 65th birthday celebration. Made to feel welcome as soon as i entered the pub ( down stairs from dining area ) , this was my first visit. The Barman made all the family welcome as they arrive and promptly served us with the drinks we requested. The excellent service continued upstairs, our waiter ( lulian ) again made us welcome, explained the menus, both food and drinks. The food was great, i had the steak and cooked to perfection as i ordered. Our waiter served each of us with the attention we were dinning by ourselves, nothing was too much for him, also his recommendation for the white wine was gratefully appreciated by my daughter and daughter in law. the nice surprise was my birthday doughnut served to me and a chorus of happy birthday, nicely the other diners joined in. Smashing day, thanks to all the team for making it a special day to remember my 65th by. ps i hope i have read the name correctly off the bill. If not i booked table of 6 for David Goulding-Huckle at 12.45pm 20/7. Maybe that will help if i have got it wrong.

    What a fabulous experience! We arrived early was welcomed and had a tour around the downstairs The decor gives the place the typical London pub character with walls crashed out with an eclectic mix old paints paintings The restaurant upstairs is small and lively with an open kitchen. The staff were friendly and very professional. The food and wine very good. It was a shame the scotch eggs were not on the restaurant menu although a staff member did say they would get one from the bar but my son then changed his mind. The 3 of us had the sourdough bread with lovage butter followed by Beetroot Gnocchi, Pork Loin and Mackerel… All of which we would highly recommend. The beer got a thumbs up by my husband and son. I had 2 glasses of the house rose which was very drinkable. I couldn’t resist having the Lore Doughnut as I was curious, it was very light, it was gone in a flash, as I didn’t want to share. We will definitely return to this uniques place

    The food here is fantastic, memorable in fact. I have eaten in many Michelin Star restaurants, pubs, fine dining establishments and the food at the Lore of the Land stands at one of the tastiest meals I've ever had. I had the smoked trout to start, and honestly I did not want it to end, fresh, delicate, tasty and lovely texture, the presentation was also excellent. Then I had a Sirloin Steak, it was juicy, tender, perfectly cooked, obviously well sourced and cooked with love. We do not live local and booked to come here in advance. We will be back and considering the amount of choice in and around London, that says it all!!

    Great food and atmosphere! Highly recommend coming here. Booked about 6 weeks out which wasn’t great as only had a few late sittings left but it worked out well.

    The food was lovely but our server was less than friendly, she didn’t smile once and ignored us most of the time. She made our experience less enjoyable as we felt like she didn’t want us in the restaurant from the second we stepped foot in the building. The atmosphere and the food was incredible but this server put a bit of a downer on the meal.
