    Very good pub grub . I didn’t like football match being switched on by another diner . This nice old pub needs a new front door that closes properly to keep it warmer in cold weather . Portion size is enormous so don’t eat breakfast if you go for Sunday lunch . Not sure why the belly pork option is called porchetta but it probably reflects the target customers from this sadly gentrified locality , which used to be a working class neighbourhood typified by the adjacent table where the slack harry dad appeared to be a pseudo QPR fan intent on appropriating the beautiful game.

    Our first visit to the pub met the family at cemetery and after Sunday Lunch booked well in advance. Service, table, ambiance, food choice all good. Staff very helpful. Disappointed no hot drinks available and this spoilt and really lovely experience and needs to be rectified.

    I was very disappointed that on such a busy day ( Father’s Day ). Harry the manager was out and left 2 members of staff who was run of their feet trying to clear tables bring out food serve drinks proper credit to them they did an excellent job however it wasn’t nice to see them struggle which had a knock on effect to customers waiting patiently at the bar to order drinks and food

    Television was excessively loud, service was almost nonexistent, both my wife and I had plates dropped on our coats by the staff clearing tables, food was poor quality and the choice was limited. We used to really enjoy our Sunday lunches for to good service and food. We will not be returning as there are better establishments in the area.

    Even with £10 discount this meal was overpriced. We had a steak priced at £21 which was badly butchered badly cooked small and very tough. I saw a member of staff wiping his unmasked mouth and nose with his hand and then serve food. sat in a chair that was so wobbly it would not taken a heavy person(I am 11st 4lb) and on pointing this out to a member of staff he just simply left it there for someone else to sit on. The music was so loud we had difficulty hearing the waitress ( she was sweet if very untrained) or conversing. table was sticky. Well thats enough to be getting on with if they are really interested.

    as per your email we booked a table for 1.30 [ having changed from 1pm ] It is noted we needed to arrive by 1.50 - which we did only to be told that our table had been given to others because server stated her records showed 1pm ! We had changed the time over a week ago. As such was not a table for the 5 of us [ only for v4 ] which is not acceptable, particularly as we are regular visitors [ and generous tippers ]
