Good but be prepared to wait for your food

Was here for a family Sunday lunch. The food was excellent but the baked chicken took 40 mins - way too long. The beers were good and the service was good as well. We got two free beers due to the long wait on the chicken

1st time at this place. The barman offered/recommended to make a pornstar martini. It was disgusting - drink just tasted like syrup. don't offer something you don't know how to make. Maybe it was my fault, should have ordered a beer instead had I known.

I was stood by the bar and got sprayed in detergent by a barman cleaning a pump. This ruined my shirt whilst the barman just laughed.

I really like this bar and they have a an amazing selection of beers. The bar men are knowledgable and very quick to serve you, unlike allot of bars in the area. Its in a nice location a bit further down Northcote road from the really busy area, its probably why Johnny Vaughan makes it his local. The food is... More

It's a nice bar to drink a beer, but they also serve amazing burgers! Maybey it's better to make a reservation (it's not so big), but it's really worth it!

I modestly enjoyed the praise for the book. We had to draught beers in excellent condition and the sharing meze all for under forty quid.... More

This is a nice place to go - perhaps the nicest on the street. The selection of beers is to be admired (and sampled) and the staff understands the wares they sell. Nice place. Good drink. Food a bit obvious.
