Great vibe, friendly staff, visited Sunday evening, only disappointment was that the roast beef and chicken were finished. Roast pork was excellent, mushroom pie has room for improvement (bit dry and too few mushrooms. Definitely going back.

This is a nice pub and I had booked an outside table so I was ready for a good, Covid safe evening. I was really disappointed to see they had rented out the back room which you go through to get to the toilets for a party of maybe 25 people some of whom were moving between inside and out. There was no social distancing, it was like the good old days with music and dancing, and a complete change from my last visit a few months back when it was table service only. It felt dangerous and was completely inappropriate (illegal?) in the context of the “rule of six” and a possible new lockdown: the only difference from normal was we were told we had to wear a mask at the bar. If you value your health I’m afraid for now I think you should avoid this place. Pub owners taking this attitude will cause much spreading of infection and get their whole industry shut down. Really sad.

Top quality but “easy” (unfussy) food in a lovely beer garden. Friendly staff who offered us an outside table in the good weather even though we had booked inside and mixed a perfect Bloody Mary (love it when they actually listen to the request to make it extra spicy). All topped off with the return of the olive oil cake to our lives! We’ve missed you!

You MUST order the chicken soup, olive oil cake and egg tarts. Divine!

Friendly and professional service. Dogs, babies and loud Australians but hey, it’s a pub. Excellent coffee.

Would like more Portuguese influence on the Standard breakfast dishes - a bacaulau Arnold Bennet, chorizo, fried potatoes perhaps? They looked nice but not exciting.

Will be back for the chicken soup and cakes!

Went to the Nuno residency. Food was fantastic, really delicious. Outdoor garden also lovely. Unfortunately took over 30 minutes to take four order though, one of the staff members was downright rude with multiple tables, and the food was slow to appear. Would definitely return for the food

We went to the Nuno brunch and were completely satisfied with every single thing we ate. The savory fruits to start with yogurt were delicious, as was the romaine lettuce hearts with gazpacho. The piri piri chicken has a warming spice kick to it and the chicken was delicious and moist. The bone marrow burger is a staple and well deservedly so - delicious. We just managed to share Nuno's custard tart to finalise the meal with some awesome coffee. The crispiest Portuguese tart I've ever had. We made our second booking while eating the savory fruits and can't wait to try the rest of the menu in a couple of weeks time.

Wish we could have eaten outside as the ambiance was better. It was a little hot and stuffy inside. But besides that it was a delightful meal. There was a little confusion with the bill at the end. They didn't apply the eat out to help out discount correctly but once I mentioned it they were really quick to correct the mistake.

All three of us all enjoyed our food immensely. The gazpacho was everything you want a gazpacho to be, particularly on a hot day. The steak with egg was the best steak and egg my friend had ever eaten. I wasn't sure how eggs, courgette flowers and hung yoghurt would come together on a plate without bread or some kind of carb, but it worked beautifully. Oh and the smoked hollandaise sauce was to die for. Highly recommend the chelada for a refreshing take on a shandy/bloody mary. This was all brought to our table by Nuno himself. We will be returning...

We went for lunch / brunch at Nuno at the Scolt Head at 1.30pm on a Friday, expecting a bit of a feast, albeit pub-style.

Although our starters came promptly, the main course took an age to arrive. Not that we ordered anything too complicated - a burger and a steak. Sadly, when it did eventually arrive, the steak order was wrong (a sandwich rather than a main meal). With that said, the food was delicious.

We were there over 2 hours for two lunch courses. We'd hoped to have a dessert too, but had to leave to get back to work.
