When we arrived, the table type we'd reserved (high table) wasn't available and they had reserved us a table in the restaurant area which we didn't want as we wanted to watch the football while we ate. They told us we couldn't reserve that type of table even though we had and that the website gave us the option to. Fortunately there was a spare table not in the restaurant area which had a view of the tv, albeit not a great one. Once we had a table, the service was fine and the food was tasty

Dined upstairs to watch the Football, however at half time the commentary turned in to extremely loud music and continued for 15 minutes or so, this spoilt the enjoyment.

Good food and beer as always though.

Food and service were very good. You MUST book if there’s a Chelsea home game because the Pembroke is popular with fans going to their matches. (NB: Only home fans will be admitted.) Despite that, the restaurant area was not noisy, despite the bar being full of Chelsea football fans watching the early kick-off.

Great and quick food service; bar was very busy and so a bit of a wait, but it was an England World Cup match. Very busy during matches but three large TVs so can view from almost anywhere. When I booked I mentioned watching the match and was given a great table for it. Flatbread and dip was delicious!

Have been to the Pembrooke a couple of times before and we were looking forward to returning. Reserved a high top in the front of the room (an option offered by the restaurant) for 7:30 and reconfirmed the day before at their request. On arrival no one was available to greet us and we had to wait quite a while till someone came out from the back, The person who eventually did speak to us seemed a bit uncertain and offered us a table in a small area back near the kitchen. When we pointed out we had a reservation she finally looked it up and found the reservation but had no other seating to offer us. It seemed no one had reviewed any reservations they had that night and what seating option they had chosen -- totally unprepared. A terrible way to treat repeat (or any) customers -- won't be back. We did, btw, end up having a great dinner that night down the street at the Italian restaurant Pappardella.

I made a reservation in the pub to watch the UEFA Final Match. Although there was a slight confusion with the table, the pub provided us seats in front of the big screen, according to my request.

However, the pub was quite full, the transmission happened almost without sound, and the service was very weak, there was no more beer, there were few attendants and plenty of waiting to order drinks.

For a place that wants to broadcast the games of the world cup, and that receives a large audience on game days, the place must prepare itself better, in terms of service.

Thanks

Very tasty Sunday roast. Probably one of the best I've had at the Pembroke. Hope the quality stays (i.e. chef)!!! :)

Bloody Mary was quite tasty - mustard seeds instead of horseradish. Yummy. A bit thicker and more spice would suit me.

Desserts were enjoyed by all, especially the massive apple crumble.

First time here with a friend. We both had Teriyaki squid to start and scallops and chips for mains along with a side of macaroni cheese. The food was so nice and very reasonably priced.

My only issue was the time it took for the drinks and macaroni cheese to come out. With that said we did not complain and yet when we received the bill our server Christopher apologised for the slow service and knocked the drinks and macaroni cheese.

The slow service was not his fault. He was left to serve around 8 tables alone.

We would definately come back and thank you Christopher.

Service was very casual .. you could see the staff having jokes in the kitchen. Went for a roast dinner on Sunday, they were out of a lot of food and for 2 roast dinners, 2 diet cokes and a dessert £60 is a bit over priced, delicious, but needed more food really!

I booked a standard table through Open Table. The pub has an upstairs eating area where there is a big screen for sport. There is no facility on the website to choose this option and the upstairs tables are reserved very early. If you wish to book upstairs it's best to call the Pembroke directly.
The food (Sunday lunch) was very good for £16/head. Well cooked and presented with plenty of gravy (for a change).
The staff were friendly and accomodating, but could smile a bit more. The waitress was very helpful.
Overall, a nice experience which I would repeat.

Review for Sunday lunch. Our waiter was very helpful but, other than that, there were very few other positives. No atmosphere: there were only two tables occupied (when the other local pub we tried to book was booked out for that same Sunday lunchtime). The fish we ordered had to be sent back twice. The steak cuissons were inconsistent and one of us consequently couldn't finish their meal ...

Went on Sunday. We both had a roast. I had the pork and my friend had the beef.
The portions were large. Nice choice of veg. The yorkshire pudding was nice although the roast potatoes were a little disappointing. Not crispy enough. I ended up only eating only half of one and I usually LOVE roast potatoes!
My pork and crackling was lovely though. The gravy was a little too rich.
All in all it was a good meal

This is a lovely pub with a great buzzy atmosphere. It was let down by mediocre food and poor service. The food is over priced for the quality of the cooking and presentation and there is a 12% service charge included but the service on this occasion was very poor. This may have been a one off, I hope so because it is such a lovely building and interior, it has a lot of potential. I will not go again though.

An excellent Gastropub. My only grumble is the common tendency to add garnishing of meat of various sorts to fish dishes. It is increasingly common unfortunately. But a very fine place nonetheless.

Prebooked for 3. Waited 90 minutes then informed it would be another 20 minutes to get starters. Short blonde waitress was unhelpful and we decided not to wait any longer, she wanted to charge us for the drinks we got and argued with an irish staff member because she said there'd be no charge. The irish girl was apologetic and we didn't have to pay. I've been living in london a year and the service has been poor in 80% of places both in bars & restaurants. They just can't seem to deal with a busy work place!
