We visited in June 2016. The hotel is directly opposite Wandsworth Station (you don't hear the trains), with quick connections to Waterloo Station and the underground and right on the bus route to Victoria. It is also within a short walking distance to the river. On the face of it the hotel looks like a typical English pub, but what... More

Lovely ambience in the pub and in the restaurant at the back where you can see all the kitchen, really nice. Good menu with Sunday roasts. Beef was good as was the pork with shared roast potatoes and vegetables. Service was attentive and friendly. Deserts were excellent! Overall reasonable price for 2 courses and wine (£80).

Not a huge menu, but some different dishes to choose from - husband had the steak - he said it was the best he'd had for a long time ! The chocolate fondant was perfect ! Restaurant was quiet, but the bar was very busy.

We stayed here after a long day at the Chelsea Flower Show. I was really surprised how lovely the hotel is. You enter reception through a cobbled passageway which in the daytime is lined with buckets of flowers from the florist next door. The room was very well appointed. The tray with tea and coffee was more than the usual... More

Splendid pub/hotel on a corner. Most of the outside if faced in green tiles. It dates from the mid 1800's but inside all is very comfortable. Noisy bar, good (quiet) restaurant, comfortable good sized rooms. Air con that works. Excellent shower, big TV if you want one. Good food in the restaurant. Good breakfast. I have nothing bad to say......except... More

Lovely room. Tasty food. Beautifully presented breakfast. Bar had a really good atmosphere on Friday night. Staff were very helpful. Located in a traquil corner of London and yet opposite Wandsworth Town Station - 16 minutes by train to Waterloo. We loved it.

Fantastic rooms, food, beer and staff.My only issue was the WiFi seems to have limited reach but this could have been an issue which the hotel could easily resolve but I didn't raise it at the time. Would definitely stay again.
