Loved everyone that worked in this Pub! Everyone was very friendly and helpful! We were recommended this pub by the front desk at our hotel and had a great time. We enjoyed the food and thought the atmosphere was great. We were there on a Friday night and they had singers (not a full band), but more in the style... More

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.

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
