Our aim is to ensure that the Dartmouth Castle is, first and foremost, a pub. We have a great selection of beer and a well-chosen international wine list with 15 wines available by the glass. We've also put the same enthusiasm and hard-earned skills in to the gutsy Mediterranean fare that's won many accolades in its sister pubs and is now starting to become recognised at The Dartmouth. Come in and see for yourself!
We take bookings for small groups downstairs in the pub, as well as for our function room for larger groups. If you would like to know more, please give us a call or send us an email.

Attractive, elderly pub, just beyond the hurly-burly of Hammersmith Broadway. Clean and well maintained, and, inside, lots of comfortably worn wooden fittings.

An excellent venue for a pre-theatre meal. Interesting menu served with care and enthusiasm accompanied by a wide choice of drinks including an impressive array of gins, beers and wines.

The Dartmouth Castle is hard to beat for good pub food served by friendly and thoughtful staff. Nice to see free newspapers at the bar too.

Nice meal with good service, I thought the wine list was on the expensive side and a very average pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord was £5.10 with but then again I'm not used to London prices!

Enjoyed the whole evening with my friends, starting from a very warm and friendly welcome. However, it was very noisy so everyone had to speak loudly, making it worse.

We were on our way to the Lyric theatre so lookng for good quality...but fast service. And we got both. Loved the food, great service - vey welcoming and friendly staff.

It's a pub - so the noise level can be high...but that's what you get in pubs :) Would defintiely go back next time we're at the Lyric.

Have been to the Dartmouth Castle many times with friends, family and colleagues and it never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the service is quick and friendly, no matter how big the group is that you are dining with. I will definitely be back!

Great dog friendly pub (although it's more like a restaurant as it has table service). Very friendly staff, nice menu.

Table for 5 for a lunchtime business meeting. Good menu and enough of an ambience to not be overhead but not too much to make conversation difficult.

This was a find via Open Table when we suddenly needed dinner options in a different neighborhood than planned. It turned out to be a good find. The menu wasn't the same old tired pub grub and the service was excellent. From the prawn skewers/white bean and ham soup starters to the apple and berry crumble, the food was tasty and decently priced (for London). The two gentlemen serving were helpful with choosing a beer - good selection - and we never were wanting for service. Definitely would go back.

Great venue. Went for dinner prior to a show at the Lyric - just a couple of minutes walk away. The staff were excellent and the food was very good. Only negative is that there was only 1 vegetarian main option.

Very tasty food and a good choice of fish/seafood options. Went upstairs to eat, as it was too noisy downstairs in the bar area for a good chat. Really friendly service.

We went for Sunday lunch, the service is very good, a pleasant welcome and helpful food recommendations. The roast beef was described as rare to medium rare. It was rather more medium and only luke warm. We didn’t see others eating, except for one other table. Not the ambiance we would have liked. Ice cream was good. Dogs are welcomed.

Absolutely fabulous Sunday roast. A very moist and Flavoursome lemon and thyme chicken. Best roast chicken I’ve had in a pub. My partner had beef which he said was great too.I hadn’t been here for about 2 years and thought it was very good then and will be back again soon. White House wine was lovely too and good value and very nice and friendly service.
