Great Atmosphere, menu, service & food!!!
A big group of us come over after booking for a birthday! meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans.
We all enjoyed our meals and the staff were so attentive, we also had view of the TV's watched Leeds with cocktails. It's one to revisit!

My meal of flat iron chicken was awful - great skin and feathers left on the chicken which was ver unappealing and unappetising - not what I expected at all. I could only manage to eat a little of the chicken breast and could not touch the rest of the chicken which looked revolting. The staff were very good and a third was discounted from the price of the chicken dish but it was not a good dining experience.

We have been coming to The Pembroke regułary in the past few months. I’ve decided to book for Mother’s day as suggested by staff a few days prior. I loved the atmosphere and the service, the mangers are always accomadating my requests even when I book last minute for big groups. Personally I always enjoyed the food and I’m coming back as there’s choices for all of us. I’m recommending this place to everyone!

Came for the roast based on the reviews and they were great, although we went in the evening and it was obvious we had what was left from being made earlier in the day as some items from the menu were missing and we had remnants of some of the items on our plate. We went with 2 kids and there wasn't a kids menu. The waiter said they could do a kids size portion however the fish and chips still came as a main portion but for a fraction of the price which was nice of them and probably understandable that they didn't have small fish portions in the kitchen. Overall, it was a nice experience and the wait staff were freindly. The tables are at the back of the pub so it's not too loud (the kids were actually asleep most of the time without noise waking them).

DONT GO THERE!!!!
Just terrible!! Went there Saturday evening.

We set for dinner, no vegetarian options AT ALL!!
WOW... Eat meat or stay hungry!!
We tried to by pass by ordering fish finger sandwich that was on the menu, and an extended side salad for the my partner.
after 3 mins comes the bar tender/ responsible, very firm saying that sandwich is not part of the menu (although was on the menu)
“So what can we eat? “ We asked..
He gave us this look of a veal and said, I will do EVERYTHING I can for you guys.
Great!! (I replied) So make us one sandwich which is on the menu, his reply that he can’t!!
What a bad joke...

We used to go there 3/5 years ago very often, with family, friends and as a couple only... used to love it and was ALWAYS FULL... now super empty and horrible.

Now the Pembroke is the worst experience we v had for long time.

We drank our wine we ordered and went to the Italian next door...

Will NEVER go back and my advise to everyone , DONT GO THERE.
There are much better places!!!

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!
