Just came back from the Pavilion End. Beautifully furnished English pub with a homely feel to it. The drinks were well poured and the food nice. BUT the best thing about the pub is the staff! Lovely, curious and friendly. They made me feel at...home and were always there help. One of the best Pubs in London because of this. To the staff... Thank you so much you are all amazing! Thank youMore

Great location in picturesque Watling Street near St Paul's Cathedral. Had steak for lunch as part of the "Eat out to help out" campaign, washed down with a couple of pints of London Pride ale. Tasty home cooked chips but could have done with a...few more as highlighted in a previous review! Friendly and efficient staff offering table service.More

Sat downstairs where there’s no phone reception so you’ll have to sign up to WiFi. Watched football here, loads of screens, great for sport. Beer selection is meh. The staff really worked hard to get us sauces and I appreciated that. The chicken burger was...so tasty, actually very good indeed but big problem. The portion of chips. I mean come on. You can’t serve up a half empty plate, at least fill it with salad to hide your shame. A half empty plate pffff it’s 2020, sort it out.More

It was my first time visiting this bar. I accidentally actually got there as I needed the bathroom but me and my friends decided to stay for one and I am glad we did. The food is good, lovely selection of beers and music. The...service of the staff on the bar and on the floor is amazing. The staff always smiling, very chatty and gave good recommendations for the food and drinks. They defiantly know what what customer service is ! There was no problem clean and a very nice vibe.More

We started visiting The Pavilion End a few months ago being initially impressed at food. We followed through with an xmas booking which was good food but a mixed back in respect of service. Today, first visit post xmas was really disappointing. Staff were just...engrossed in themselves and customers were an inconvenience. That was from the dirty table which we had to ask to be cleaned, to the lack of water that was never delivered to the table, through to food portions which filled half the plate. I actually asked for more chips but nothing appeared and the staff were obviously too busy shouting and joking amongst themselves to look after the two occupied tables. I'm not surprised in hindsight they were empty! At the end of our meal we waited for the table to be cleared and in the end did it ourselves. We weren't asked if we wanted more wine, enjoyed our meal, like a coffee etc reflecting our feeling they just wanted customers to leave. We did, and they did have the cheek to include a service charge. Just laughable. So the restaurant business continues to whinge about a downturn and lose even more customers through poor service and quality.More

I went here for work Christmas dinner. For some reason they arranged us into one large table and one small table, which had one of my colleagues trying to swap place names with someone, complaining that he was on the "children's table". Staff were friendly,...but the food portion sizes weren't particularly big - also we could have done with more vegetables with our main course.More
