Met a friend after work in this bar and found it is well frequented by other blokes from work. Good beer and not too pricey. Just not much room for sitting down. Good atmosphere though.

Food, service and price are very average all the way round. nothing about this pub would make me go back again. Service is very slow and menu is definately not accurate in what actually shows up on your table. The boys who wait on the tables are lost and cant keep up with customers orders.

Hi Steve, Thanks for taking time to give us some feedback. We’re very sorry to hear about your average experience at our pub. Average is certainly not our aspiration. It is by no means an excuse, but on the day of your visit we were experiencing some major issues with our electrics which were affecting all aspects of service and... More

All about the chicken wing Wednesday! Plus there is a huuuuuge selection of non-mainstream ales, beers and ciders which is nice :) Smaller than most Draft Houses in the chain, but still is a nice local watering hole.

Good food. Went for dinner after the tower bridge event. Very close and in a cute out of the crowd place. Felt more like a local eatery/bar. Large portions of food. Very tasty food. Good drinks

I've not eaten here yet but have had many a quick pint. With these daft London prices their cheap "keg of the day" is a godsend. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and nice areas to sit outside. Good bar!

The beer selection is good, and food is slightly better quality than your average local pub. This place perhaps suffers a little because there are so many good restaurants further down Northcote Rd.... I feel this is trying to cater to the after work drinkers settling in for a good selection of different pints, as well as a more refined... More

We dropped in here for a quick drink around lunchtime on a Sunday when scouting out the locality for future trips to stay with friends who live locally. They offer a small range of real ales plus some keg beers & ciders, although the guy who served us was not that well versed in their individual characteristics. It is a... More

We used to go there two years ago and the food was excellent. Yesterday I ordered a hot dog. The sausage - because nothing else was there - was served in a dull and dry bun. On the side they poured some mustard in a small plate with some tasteless sour crowd. It didn't look good and it didn't taste... More

I haven't been here for a really long time and fancied a drink! It was a sunny day with people outside and the football on (really quietly) inside. The beer selection is brilliant and the wine wasn't too bad either. The food selection looked good - I only saw the menu, I never ordered anything. Not a bad place to... More
