Normally I say best Sunday lunch in London. Sadly that’s changed all the really nice vegetables on the side and beautiful presentation seems to have been removed

The ambiance is great, I’d rather be there for drinks than dinner. Vegetarian food was actually very good, the steak and lamb ‘breast’ very disappointing. Value for money on food was silly.

Beautiful pub with lots of character. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. One of the best roasts I’ve had in London. Shame there was no sticky toffee pudding that day but probably for the best (and my waistline!).

Awful experience. I called to warn that I would be late and the woman on the phone told me that it was not a problem. I arrived at the restaurant, no one said hi, everybody ignored us, i thought i was a ghost then finally the waiter tells me : you’re late ! Not the best welcome ...
Then we are sat at our table, I ask questions about the menu: what is bread butter pudding ? The waitress answers “it’s like the dessert” but I had no idea what the dessert was, the same happened for “cavalo Nero” , I ask “what is cavalo nero?” And the waitress answers “its cavalo” and then rolled her eyes. So we walked off.

Great atmosphere always, lively but respectful crowd. Menu always has an interesting and easy selection. Stay are always accommodating and friendly. Only problem is that the back area of restaurant is not cut off from the bathroom smells, and this is pretty rank when you are eating. Unless there was a major refurb, it is hard to know what they could do.

The pub has such great atmosphere but some of the meals were a bit of a let down. The food itself was great, but the serving size was very small for £17. We had expected a lot more for that kind of price.

Great gastro pub with very good food and short but seasonal menu and good products. The wine list is exhaustive and the staff is happy and able to recommend what you should pick. It’s the second time I go and I will go back. I also like the outside small terrace where you can sit for a smoke or have a drink

This is our "local" and never disappoints. The food and the service are excellent. The only quibble is with the price of the pan-fried turbot with confit fennel - £34 seems too high.

The dining area of the pub was unexpectedly closed due to an emergency plumbing problem on the day we booked for lunch.

We arrived and were greeted with apologies and fantastic service from the staff who were going completely out of their way to find alternative nearby pubs who could take lunch reservations. Outstanding service! Hopefully one day we can return to try the food.

This is one of my favourite local haunts and while the menu is small and changes daily I think it is usually outstanding with dishes packed with flavour and interesting combinations. It gets very busy when the weather is warm when the outdoor terrace is buzzing. You can't book a table outside but it's worth getting there early to sit there in this peaceful spot.

That was a nice pub. Good food but a little bit expensive (£24 for the Sunday Roast and the dessert was expensive for the quantity) and the service was quite slow. I would recommend the staff to ask the clients which size of the glass of wine they want. They don't ask so they bring the bigger glass...
