Food was delicious. Some of the small plates are very small, ie the scallops. They were out of another dish that I wanted and the waitress recommended the cauliflower dish which I wouldn't normally have gone for and it was really good, lovely flavours.

Atmosphere was cosy and it was sad that they then had to close the following day for lockdown after only just reopening.

Overall experience is great as usual.
Personally I did not enjoy much the options included in the new menu, so I am looking forward to potentially broadening it up a bit.

Great Covid measures not diminishing the atmosphere at all.

Lovely pub/restaurant, would imagine when busier noise volume would be louder, food was outstanding gave a rating as good value due to it being eat out to help out which they have extended for the whole of September, if not for this would of probably picked a cheaper option on the menu but can honestly say I think that it would still be amazing, the chef is a very very good and its a open kitchen so you can see them cooking. Didn't get to have desert as pub was closing, but when given the bill was given 2 scoops of ice cream by the server free of charge which was a lovely gesture, i would definitely visit again when visiting London, Prince Bonaparte thank you for a lovely evening

It was reopening day and was fantastic to see that the safety measures in place (great)!did not detract from the usual atmosphere (buzzy). It was a pleasure to be back in the pub, drink out of real glasses, eat off real plates with real cutlery, and the food was - as usual - tasty. Happy days!
