Right next to our hotel. Fish & Chips on our first night in London. It was great. The service was excellent and the atmosphere what you would expect.

Why are closing times such a lottery. Refused service at 11:15 pm. Ten mins later, some are still being served. Lots of custom heading for the nearby hotel. Also, expensive and tatty. Not a pub Fullers should be proud of.

My husband, myself and the in laws popped into this pub for a bite to eat. I got the honey roast ham. I thought it would have been carved off the bone but it was two slices of the wet stuff you buy pre sliced and pre packed from a supermarket! Came with chips eggs and coleslaw £10.95! NOT WORTH...

Popped in here for a drink on the way to Hyde Park on a Sunday lunchtime. The garden forecourt and the pub were busy but not so packed that we couldn't get a seat. Usual Fullers range plus a good selection of lagers and cider and there were sufficient staff to ensure we didn't wait long to be served. We... More

Just come across this pub while walking around Sussex Gardens. Hyde Park is on the other side. Plenty of outdoor seats

Food was good...but atmosphere was better. In a great area near Hyde Park. Great outside seating and more local but still in London. Enjoyed fish and chips....local beer choices.

This was our third time to this pub. First time was 25 yrs ago, second was 20 and most recently with our teenage kids. We remember this place to be just as we visited each time, very quaint and just an overall great place to visit after a long flight overseas. This place does not disappoint. Friendly service with great... More

We found great food and good hospitality at this pub and it was walking distance from our hotel and across the road from Hyde park. On Bayswater road with all services available and the beer was tops
