I did like this pub for lots of reasons, however the food, although immaculately presented, didn't pass my orgasmic noises test. It's a lovely little place, nice decor, quite comfortable and perfect for chatting to a girlfriend you haven't seen for a while. The service was top notch, friendly and chatty and smiley waiter, everything delivered on a timely basis... More

I received an email from TripAdvisor saying I hadn't done a review for a while and I immediately thought of the Bolingbroke. The staff are really friendly and there is always a great atmosphere. There is a good draft beer and wine selection and the food is consistently good. The pub is uber family friendly and lots of people take... More

Beautiful pub, such a shame food is so average. Barramundi fish was excellent but to serve it with frozen scalloped potatoes and 'Autumn slaw' (which it turns is out is just ordinary coleslaw) is nothing short of odd. Burger, ribeye and chicken parmigiana looked better. However all were washed down with warm under chilled wine which was disappointing. Deserts looked... More

Atmosphere was busy and quite nice but a but dark for me to be honest, I don't think... More

Took some friends for dinner here the other day, to thank them for being amazing to me when times were hard. I asked them to select anywhere they wanted in London and they chose here - an excellent choice! It's at the southern end of Northcote Road and is a typical Victorian Pub Building. Inside its very atmospheric and well... More

This is a kids paradise and very family friendly. The menu is quite simple but nice. It is a shame they have stopped selling champagne by the glass (as opposed to other fizzy wine alternatives) and don't do 100% chardonnay wine anymore.

Go here regularly. Very pleasant atmosphere. Good pub vibe. Sometimes too busy on weekends so I prefer to go on a week day. Food is also good, mid-range prices and overall good quality.

A gastro style pub with a good atmosphere. Tables in the bar area but also a separate dining area at the back for a more restaurant experience. Good choice of food which comes well presented and tastes delicious. Excellent and fresh produce. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good choice of wines and spirits. A good option for couples or groups... More

This is one of the most delicious meals I've had, beatifically presented and full of flavour. The waiter was somewhat disinterested but courteous when he served us - but just cannot fault the food. Would definitely recommend.
