We visited this place a few weeks ago while touring the city - the place is super busy and there's loads of good drinks to bed had. I recommend going on a Friday night out in Soho

Its hard to conceive that this area was once the preserve of royal hunting grounds, and we felt proud to be patrons just like Mozart, Constable and Rossetti, let alone, Orwell, did way back when. The present pub dates back from 1897 and contains a large quantity of the highly glazed tiles that were popular in their day. I can... More

Chef should be ashamed, microwaved crap dishes, never again, weather spoons would be better. Ok for a pint but certainly not for food.

After ordering 2 drinks and asking to pay separately the bar lady was very rude and said next time we have to order separately. When we said there wouldn't be a next time she said 'good'. She got the order of 4 wrong and this was because she was chatting to other staff while taking our order. We felt very... More

Friendly service. Was good for fish and chips. Nice location, good place to take someone who is from out of town for a quick bite. Historic building.

I always try to come here for at least one pint when in London. There is something about the vibe in this place that I really like. The location couldn't be better if you like strolling around Soho area. They also serve food which is really nice. I have had a dinner here for about 4-5 times. The people working... More

During a walk in London found this little pub in Soho. Had a pint and enjoyed people watching. The pub is near a small park. Great little place to have a beer!

After reading the reviews I took my parents to this pub as a treat, and it was certainly not a treat, No atmosphere whats so ever and the food was a disgrace. What is wriiten on the menu is not was it delivered onto the plate, very poor indeed, and will not be revisiting.

If you are looking for a classic pub then this shouldn't disappoint. The only consideration is if you like a roomy pub, or are part of a large group, it is a little cramped inside, but that is a main part of the appeal. We were a group of six, and had to drink outside to start with, after about... More
