Neighborhood: Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.

We went this Saturday just gone on arrival we were seated next to the gents toilet. We were really looking forward to the visit and especially looking forward to trying the beef wellington. After ordering drinks we decided to ask if there was a different table we could move to. The guy we asked looked extremely busy and advised us no this table was the only option, no apology no explanation. Since we were in London for a special occasion also we were on a tight schedule we decided to stay. Food was nice but felt totally let down by the service. Would we return. No. Couldn't chance being sat next to the toilet again. People walking past constantly, at one point a member of staff walked in to spray air freshener which of course ended up coming out into our seating area just as I was tucking into the beef wellington. Not nice. I feel had we been sat in the main bar our experience would have been totally different. I don't often write bad reviews if my experience is poor I prefer to mention it at the time, on this occasion unfortunately my concerns were not heard. Very disappointing. There were three tables in a small room at the back of the bar by the toilet please if* you are booking a table I would recommend checking where you will be seated as once you are in situ the staff will not be accomadting to move you!

Talk to anyone who has had Sunday lunch at Grenadier during the last several decades and you’ll receive that little smile of warm memories. We wanted a proper English meal on our last day of our London visit, and Grenadier kitchen & staff did not disappoint.

However, some things were amiss, we think. In all of our prior visits, Sunday lunch was a crowded and bustling affair - part of the charm, indeed. As far as the staff and management were concerned back then, it was all hands on deck. But, now the place was half empty, and although the staff were attentive, the management was not truly focused on anything going on around them. Whilst management were tucked in a corner talking amongst themselves, we had to hail them to get attention. Then, again, our Russian is rather rusty.

Took some friends here as, although a little out of our way, they'd never been and I knew it to be a great little pub with bags of character.

Unfortunately, when I went to get some drinks, I was met by a curmudgeonly chap fully decked out in a long white coat and face shield visor. It was like I was entering the set of Chernobyl. In as few words as possible, he pointed to an A4 sheet of instructions, the one with the code that requires scanning with your phone or sending a text somewhere. I asked about the text when the scan didn't produce anything on my camera, he had no idea. It worked on one of my friend's phone.

Drinks were fine, barman was okay, one ale on tap, reasonably priced for Belgravia.

There were 2 tables, 6 at one so they'd taken all but one chair from the other table. When my friend lifted the table to move it to the bench seat just outside the entrance so we could all sit down, out came our man to tell him off. So we left the table with the one chair for a single person to arrive and sit at!

Noticed one of the 6, who'd been there a while, try to go in and use the facilities, he was stopped and told to use the gel first? Presumably he will then wash his hands and reapply gel.

Because of COVID and it's detrimental effect on pub owners, I won't go less than 3 circles but it deserved a 2.

This is not a pub you would ever discover unless someone recommends it. It is such a joyful place. It's tiny but in the summer the crowds spill onto the cobbled street in the front, not that there are any chairs!

They serve lunch in two small rooms behind the bar. Beef wellington is their specialty and I enjoyed this as a Christmas treat with a long-term friend. It was a wonderful lunch and, although slightly pricey, we had a fabulous time. Probably best to book ahead if you plan to eat here.

Because the bar is tucked out of the way, it really does feel special to be there, even though you're slap bang in the middle of London. It's definitely filled with charm.

Absolutely lovely pub with a great tap selection and a Sunday Roast to die for. The beef wellington was unbelievable. Bar staff was cheery and very helpful, and though the pub was very busy, they were able to keep up with service at a great rate. Sitting at the bar, we never had an empty glass for more than a few seconds. Cannot recommend this pub enough.

Buy your drinks at the bar. The staff will try to get you to put it on the bill so they can charge an extra 12.5% service. Despite booking, we were shown to a very small table. We were overcharged and although the bill was eventually changed, there was no apology. The food is ok but overpriced and the beer is well kept, but the attitude of the staff needs to improve.

A real locals place - excellent food, ambience and service. Hidden from the main roads so it's not a touristy. They don't take reservations, so get there early (the dining room is small) or just be prepared to stand outside with a drink and wait.

The Grenadier was kind of tough to locate in a back street of a neighborhood. We decided to try Beef Wellington for the first time. I enjoyed it, but my wife didn't. The mushroom toast appetizer we had was excellent, and so was the toffee bread pudding.

A great venue tucked away but so worth finding. It was busy all day with many meeting up before the Stones concert in Hyde Park, but this did not let the staff get flustered. The service was brilliant and the landlord went out of his way to make everyone as comfortable as possible. It was packed inside and out but it was an amazng experience and if anyone was a visiting tourist it showed an English Pub as the best in the world. If in London do not bypass this hidden gem.

Was a lovely pub but lost the edge that made it so good. The woman serving was incredibly rude, placed our drinks on the bar on the other side and shrugged as we had to push through others to get them. Then we had to walk back to tap card at the other side. Terrible attitude and no idea why. Won’t be returning - sadly was great 10 years ago, not now. Avoid as better in the area for a good experience.
