Feast of a Sunday lunch

Went here in May 2015 after a stroll in Holland Park. Was the prefect location to suit and enjoy a nice drink. There is a lovely beer garden out the back but it is busy and worth booking in advance. The roast beef is worth trying and the roast potatoes and the gravy are spectacular. Others in my... read more

Can't really beat this place in summer. Nice outside court and a very quaint inside area. Located right in between High Street Kensington and Notting Hill (on the "hill") you will not go away disatisfied. Unless you expect prompt service. The bar area tends to be full and at rush hour you will be lucky to get a pint. Also,... More

Great little pub with a hidden beer garden. Very understaffed so do expect to wait around 15-20 minutes until you get served at the bar. Food was pretty decent for a pub, again service was below standard.

Absolutely loved this pub in the Kensington area! It was recommeneded by a cousin and I decided to give it a try. Our group had some issues with our reservation, but Liz, our server, was there to help. She got us seated within 15 minutes and fed quickly after. Her service, cheer, and hospitality was more than delightful. The food... More

There are not many bars that can make you feel that you enter a time machine back to 200 years in the past, but this one is one of them! Staff and prices are ok! We will have to come back to try the food!

Great authentic ,good feel pub. Food and service was good and the choice of beers great. Atmosphere was fun and local, not touristy. Just think that the prices charged is excessive, don't understand how it has got so spenny to have a few pints and some food. Sad
