A modern pub with a good range of classic and newer dishes. Highly recommended for a Sunday lunch. Ample space and big screens to watch sports. Good range of beers and ciders on draught. Dining service is polite and friendly.

We booked our table for 6.30 on a Saturday, not realising there would be football on and the pub would be packed, although the dining area was empty. This of course impacted on the atmosphere somewhat as we were expecting more of a sedate neighbourhood gastropub where we could have a quietish meal. The dining room filled up after the football finished and people started eating. Food was perfectly fine pub grub – the chicken pie looked pleasingly homemade and was tasty and a smoked mackerel starter was a decent-sized portion and seemed very good quality. We had a nice evening, the staff were pleasant despite getting very busy later, and there was no pressure to vacate our table.

I live locally and don’t know why I have never been for a Sunday roast before! This pub is a neighbourhood gem. The decor is authentic but it’s a great place for some really tasty comfort food, impeccable service and great value for money. The terrine starter was probably the best I’ve ever had and the Sunday roast had a sublime melt in the mouth taste - I would have preferred my beef pinker but appreciate this doesn’t appeal to all but it still didn’t disappoint. The sticky toffee was a little burnt and would have tested better with custard - but you can’t have everything. Oh and the wine menu is really good value for London!

We've been eating at this pub probably every 2 months for 3 or 4 years. The food is always very good, apart from a veggie burger which (not surprisingly) was less than perfect. The beers are excellent, prices reasonable and the staff always make us welcome. Perfection in a local pub.

The burger and fench fries that i had were excellent as was the veggie burger that my wife had. Vegetarian curry was described by our companion as very tasty. Chilli con carne was lovely. Good selection of cheese and tasy sticky toffèe pudding to finish. All reasonably priced. Service was friendly and efficient.Very goodvalue for money. Would definately recommend

I wanted to take American work colleagues to Sunday dinner. We had a lovely roast with all the trimmings. The food was absolutely delicious, it was so well made with a lovely balance of flavours and really filling. Our dessert was also excellent and the waitress serving us was very friendly and helpful. Overall a top experience for us and my US friends loved it.

Had Sunday lunch and meat options were all roasts. All well prepared and presented. Good consideration (e.g. a cushion to sit on!) for my grandson.

Both the menu choices and the food are very good at the Scolt's Head. There are always fish options and a vegetarian option. The service is friendly but not always super efficient. It is noisy in the dining room and the accoustics make conversation slightly tricky. Lovely food though.

I live near the Scolt Head but haven't had a chance to eat there - I went along for dinner with friends last Saturday before going out in Dalston. I wasn't expecting the food to be as fantastic as it was - I'd really recommend the chicken pie (one of the best I've had - the pastry was crunchy on the outside and soft inside). We sat down at 9.30pm - the kitchen closes at 9.45pm so you need to order quickly - the music was good, it's a lively pub, and we're definitely going to go back again soon.
