We've eaten the burgers four times now and haven't been disappointed.Definitely one of my favourite places to go for a burger. The fries are £3.50 a pop but one portion is enough for two or three people. Onion rings are really tasty too. Staff are friendly and helpful and there is always a relaxed atmosphere in the pub. We haven't... More

Went there for a christmas party. Downstairs was lively, beautifully laid out and great service. Would not recommend having a xmas party here however as the room upstairs is tiny. The toilets are also very small. But i wouldn't that put you off.

Hi HungryCabbie, The standard cheeseburger, with fries and a pint of house ale would have cost you less than £15 - you chose some of the more premium food and drink options and I hope you enjoyed them. The Greedy Bear is a huge double burger made using pure organic free-range beef from the best butcher in South London (Peckham's... More

Visiting London from Cornwall and this place was just what we wanted. It had a cosy and relaxing feel with a mix of sofas and tables with candles on, a good choice of beers and THE best burger I have EVER eaten. A traditional place with a trendy edge. Would like to return on a winter's day when the fire... More

We have just stopped in on route to a tour nearby and had a wonderful roast lunch. The Vegetarian roast was the best I have eaten out.

This is our local so have been plenty of times but we'd not eaten there before. Great to be able to use the outdoor seating as it was a nice sunny evening. Ordered kimchee style burger with fries. Burger and dressings were quite nice if nothing special but it arrived in a cheap tasteless bun with pale MCD style fries.... More

I love going here, my fav place during the winter months. Sitting by the open fire with a pint of real ale, what more could a man want. Staff are always friendly, great choice of beers, good food.

The old nuns head is a great pub. It has a really relaxed atmosphere with board games lying about. The food is good, very reasonable too. Also do try the cocktails, they're always good!!

Fab burger with great service. You won't be disappointed with the quality or the portions. This the second time we have been but won't be the last.
