    Heard great things about the Sunday roast. I'd skip it. The potatoes tasted like old socks and there was very little taste to everything else. Food arrived cold.

    Booked for Sunday roast for a group of four. Well maintained space with a classic yet unique atmosphere. The only criticism from our group is that the mushroom Wellington was light on mushrooms. It was good but more of its namesake ingredient would have been well received.

    Very cool spot where upstairs turns into dining room only on Sundays for Sunday Roast. Fri Sat night into early morning it’s used as a club. Food was amazing, service was excellent, vibe was very cool, yet it had that traditional and authentic english pub feel with a mysterious and modern feel mixed it - hard to describe. Definitely better than the photos can capture. Every finished plate I saw taken away were clean!

    I had the mushroom Wellington and my husband had the beef for the Sunday Roast. Everything was very tasty, including the raspberry kombucha.

    Outside of the pub looked a bit uninviting but the inside had neat decor, friendly staff, great service, tasty food, good prices and nice drinks. 3 minute walk from Angel tube. Would definitely go for again. We had a party of 6 for Sunday lunch and we all enjoyed it.
