Dont order the veggie lasagne unless you like eating army food. Very bad. Fish okay. Caesar chicken salad was a disgrace. Looked like truck wheels drove over it. Diabolical for a Notting Hill pub. Definitely not returning here again for food. Great pub for beer...More

I’d come back here for drinks as it’s a lovely pub inside, but not for food. We came for Sunday lunch and it was pretty disappointing. Crab and avocado salad had a very bruised avocado so we asked for a new one, next one was...More

We had visited this pub whilst on another day activity, it seemed nice so as a group we called to reserve a space for dinner roughy 45mins earlier. We confirmed over the phone that there was a gluten-free roast and that all meats were still...More

Visited this pub on the recommendation of a friend living close. Couldn’t fault the actual establishment as very cosy and steeped in character. However the experience we had with one of the bar staff has ensured that I will not be returning . I was...More

Set in a fairly quiet, mostly residential area between Kensington and Notting Hill, this is a characterful, unspoilt pub. The multi-roomed layout has been preserved with much wood in evidence throughout, from the bare wooden floors to the partitions which separate the various rooms; some...More
