Could have, and should have, been better. Great chips though !!

The dining space itself is really nice - typical gastro-pub but none the worse for it. The menu looked interesting but I felt it was a little expensive for the offer. There was a fantastic range of drinks - some good ales and a couple of interesting ciders.The wine list looked good too. However... read more

I came here for dinner with my family. I have often had a drink after work in the pub area and thought it was about time I tried the restaurant. The actual restaurant area is quite small so I would advise booking a table - even on a weekday. The staff that served us were incredibly friendly and were quick... More

i can't believe I haven't found this pub before but I have always walked past, being underwhelmed by its modest exterior. Inside it is friendly and bustling near the bar and with a dining room at the back. We followed the waiters recommendations for food and wine and had a sharing dish of cote de boeuf washed down with a... More

My wife and I used the pub twice recently for Sunday lunch and received excellent food and service. Would recommend for anyone looking to enjoy a Sunday Roast in a friendly and warm atmosphere. Beer is good as well.

It does not look like much from the outside but once inside you feel captivated by the atmosphere this little pub has to offer. The staff are genuine and kind and so are the people that frequent the rooms. Its such a small place that you cannot help but sit close to people, huddled up on small benches and stools.... More

The friendly staff here are fast off the mark with great tasting homely food. There are loads of decorative oddities and things to draw your attention and spark conversation which is a really nice touch. Worth a stop.

With main courses averaging 15 pounds and up, I havent eaten here frequently as Putney offers a lot of choice for diners not wanting to share the ambiance with a pub crowd. That said, despite the limited choice (and the only item on the specials menu was included in the 7 items on the main menu) the beef was excellent... More

Delicious! Two of us had the pork loin, which was very tender and tasty. The crackling was amazing! Massive yorkshire puddings and crispy roasties - yum. Someone else ordered the pheasant and his plate was scraped clean. Finished off with a gooey chocolate fondant and passion fruit posset, with a melt-in-the-mouth vanilla shortbread. We all thought the restaurant had a... More
