We stopped in for a quick lunch before a busy day of sight seeing in London. The pub was busy and had a local feel. We had a order of fish and chips and a burger... both were excellent. The portions were large and the food was well prepared. We had a great experience here.. we'd definitely go back!

This is a nice quaint pub in South London, but is a bit on the small side so you will want to get in here early or reserve a table. Good drinks, good eats and good chat with some of the regulars in there - just don't sit on their barstools. You'll often see a cool scooter parked outside near... More

This place would have received 4 or 5 stars, if the bartender, had not been so outright rude and surly. The Her Ladyship, is from Balham, London, was born there a year after WW2 ended. Knows her way around pubs. We're a very polite couple, so we don't go looking for confrontations. We were staying in Victoria, and walked down... More

I experienced racial profiling when I went to this bar My friend and I sat down to have a drink and the waitress kept staring across at me and my friend suspiciously and was extremely rude to us. The bartender came outside to keep an eye on us while we ate our food. My friend decided to have a smoke... More

This is a charming, little pub with both indoor & outdoor tables available. I asked for a cider recommendation from the bartender & it has become my favorite (Bulmers). The decor has a kitschy humor about it & the food portions were a good size.

Great for a lunch stop while visiting London. The English breakfast (served all day) is delicious. Also try the chicken curry.

Nipped in to watch the England vs Wales match. Despite being full, albeit not totally overcrowded the staff did a great job in serving quickly and keeping tables/bar clear whilst remaining friendly and courteous. Didn't eat. Good selection of English bitter and also red wines. Outside seating available.Very easy for Victoria station.

Dropped in for a pint and lunch and was not disappointed. Lady behind the bar was very friendly and welcoming. Atmosphere was quaint and cozy. Great selection of drinks and food was excellent-best pub food we had in London. Would recommend this local neighbourhood pub to anyone looking for a real British pub experience. We will be. Back!

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
