    Fabulous atmosphere as always. Managed to get moved to an even better table - these guys are always willing to accommodate requests no matter how late. Great food and service considering how busy the whole place was and it was Easter Sunday and a very popular Premier League match on tv so a lot to contend with and still everything ran smoothly. Regular visitors despite living a good way away and this will continue. Highly recommended.

    Excellent place to eat, great for the food, the service (busy but very attentive staff), the atmosphere and it is also to my mind value for money considering the quality and quantity of the roasts we had on that Sunday.

    Disappointed with the lack of concern regarding allergies. We had a helpful man who apologised for the mix up but it would have been more helpful for the server to listen and take measures to prevent my husband being served a plate of food he was allergic to.

    Great food and even better service. We sat in the bar on high tops and would recommend (the bar seating is quite low and not a great deal of table space though so probably wouldn’t opt for that if possible). Noise levels were high but we were next to a big birthday party to be expected. Roasts are brilliant and staff are very warm and attentive - nice Sunday vibes!

    Food was very good. The problem was that one of our four main courses arrived about 15 minutes later than the other three. There was no explanation as to what had happened, barely any apology and nothing was deducted from the bill. For the benefit of the manager, staff should be trained to be more communicative in such situations - everyone makes mistakes and we would have been sympathetic to whatever had happened. But as it was, we were left feeling like no one cared and the lack of a sincere apology / deduction from the bill felt like an additional slap in the face. A real shame.

    Vegetarian options limited, and £16 for some lettuce and broccoli for a vegan main is too much. Service was great, but poor choice for those not wanting meat/fish.

    Food was very average (soft shell crab burger in my case). Most of the staff seemed a bit “dozy” and I thought the overall cost was a little over what I might expect it to be. All that said I have been before, and will probably go again but if it’s as disappointing as this visit, I will be off my list for the future

    Unfortunately it was a disappointing birthday lunch for my son. The whole pub felt chaotic and frantic. Staff seemed confused about whose responsibility our table was. We were the same question several times, would we like drinks/have we ordered etc. Food arrived after a long wait quite cold. Portion size of the burger and chips was small. It took so long to get the attention of a waiter to order a dessert that we gave up in the end and just ordered the bill. It left a sour taste spending nearly £150 for such a poor lunch. I hate complaining but feel this was justified, a lot of rethinking needed about the service and quality of food

    Extremely disappointed with Sunday roast. It was clearly leftover food that had been reheated. Portions were ridiculously tiny too. 2 very thin slivers of beef with 1 small carrot and some very old potatoes. We normally had great food there so very surprised it was so bad.

    Very nice pub slightly off the beaten track in Wimbledon village but well worth a visit. The ambience is a good balance of chilled and fun - some sports are showing on TV in certain areas but they are not noisy or in your face if that's not your sort of thing. The staff are always very friendly and accommodating and the food delicious. For me this place was a real find because it feels a lot less pretentious and loud compared to the other pubs in Wimbledon village.
