The small print that doesn't exist.
Nov 2021
i would have given this pub a comfortable four stars, except that they let themselves down badly with the food aspect of things. O ordered a perfectly satisfactory burger for just over 14 pounds, but realised, on paying, that the bill came to nearly 17.
On asking, the bar person eventually told me the excess was a 'service charge', a charge which was not mentioned on the menu. The barman's attitude was "I've only worked here for a few weeks and I don't make the rules".
I don't expect to pay a service charge for pub food, I'm afraid, and I would never have ordered the burger if I realised that I would be charged nearly 17 quid for it (and a few chips).
As ever though, it's the attitude of staff that makes the difference - I asked yer man to pass on my unhappiness to "the management", and has absolutely zero expectation that this will happen.
Shame, as the pub itself is quite nice.

burnt food
Jan 2020
Food was burned and staff did not even apolgise, let alone offer a little treat to make up.
Not good, won't come back.

Early Closing for the Convenience of the Staff
Jan 2020 • Friends
Went to have a well earned beer at 10pm and was informed they were closing in 10 minutes “because it was so quiet”. Not happy, so went to the Victoria just down the road and was able to enjoy beers until 11pm.

Great beers..

Our hotel was located just around the corner, so really this was our local. Lovely sitting outside under the patio heaters having a drink after exploring London. Nice friendly service, did not eat here , but seemed very popular, with tourists and locals

Cozy and delicious
Dec 2019 • Couples
We stopped in at lunch time for Sunday roast, and it was delicious. There are four roast options, and my husband and I both got beef. It was served with potatoes, parsnips, carrots, cabbage, and Yorkshire pudding. It was a huge serving—we had enough to enjoy as leftovers.

The pub itself is cozy and comfortable, with seating in the bar and the upstairs dining room. It’s right across the street from Hyde Park, so a great location that’s close to the tube and bus.

Our go to resteraunt/pub
Aug 2019 • Couples
Stayed in London for four days, came here as we saw it on the walk to our hotel and decided to give it a go as we liked the look.
We were far from disappointed, there are stellar staff, delicious food, cold beer and a variety of spirits. Every time we came we were greeted happily and catered for like family with gorgeous meals and staff that were motivated to provide you with an all round experience that left you with a smile and a full belly.
Whole heartedly recommend to anyone and everyone.

Wonderful place, friendly staff, huge selection of different gin to taste. Outside terrace tables to enjoy sun.
Didn’t eat there so I don’t know about food.
