Great pub. Stopped off to have a couple of pints as we visited some of the shops on Sloane Street. First class COVID precautions as you enter, along with great humour from the staff, especially Carl. Would 100% recommend it.

Traditional city pub with good beer, wine and decent food, busy and noisy and a really enjoyable afternoon chill out after a long rail trip.

Very friendly pub with great breaded cod and large chips, just like in the old country .... wait! this is the old country! That figures. But to an American, this was a real treat, and reasonably priced. Be sure to have the hard cider.

I would love to write a review of this place's food and drink offer. Unfortunately, it never got that far. Following the mid-evening end of a great event in a neighbouring luxury fashion boutique, a group of us in a buoyant mood decided to round things off with a visit to what is, to the best of my knowledge, the only "traditional" pub on Sloane Street. Barely before some of us found seats in the oddly empty Thursday-night pub, things began to slide. My friends attempting to order drinks at the bar were informed that, if we wanted the wine, it could only be served in plastic glasses. Perhaps their unpreparedness to accept this would sound snobbish if it weren't for the fact that—despite clean glasses clearly hanging from racks above the bar (pics uploaded)—even after the given reason (a malfunctioning dishwasher, apparently) they had earnestly offered to go behind the bar and wash enough glasses for our group of ten or so, themselves. Now, that would should have been enough to shame any publican worth his or her salt into finding a solution. But, no, instead they were told, "If I give you glasses, then everyone will want them". Sure, a barroom aside on the democracy of drinking culture worthy of a comedy by Aristophanes, until it became clear that he was actually SERIOUS. The gentlemen at the table beside me grimaced in uncomfortable empathy and made off-the-cuff remarks: clearly their evening had been subject the same can't-do service. More than irritated, one of my friends asked the barman where the manager was. He was on the premises, apparently, but not available. The clincher came when my other friend embroiled in this ordering debacle pointed out that we wanted the wine and were simply trying to come up with a reasonable option. In response to her question as to whether they wanted to sell us the wine or not, the barman's answer was simply, "No." It was at that point we all left. Now, just to contextualise things—quite aside from subjective viewpoints on how to run a successful hospitality business—the vast majority of us were in the over-40 group; a notable number in the over-50 segment. We were simply asking for BASIC service on a slow Thursday night just after 9pm and were obstructed at every turn. So, we decamped to the artist's suite (the woman we were trying hard to celebrate) in her nearby hotel. No one made any complaints about noise; none of the staff in that hotel about which I would happily write a glowing review—the Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, FYI—found us problematic or "difficult". Odd then that a common-or-garden pub should. Oh, but I see another reviewer from roughly the same time period has also experienced similar "issues". Avoid—at least until this public house gets its own house in order.…
