Fabulous return to my favourite pub. So pleased that they have reopened and are doing it with their usual friendly and warm style. Staff, food and drinks were super. Lovely to see Jess welcoming us back.

Emily was fantastic - gave us a free history tour of the beers. Great recommendations and top notch range of beers. Great proactive service!

Love love love coming in here for a pint, beautiful garden, friendly staff and they have a massive selection of beers! I saw a lot of insanely good looking roast dinners being ordered, i’ll definitely be returning to grab one of those !

We tried out a Sunday lunch prior to our guests visit, was only okay but happy with the old style pub . When we took our guests i was extreamly dissapointed with the food which was cold, dry, not at all appertizing , extreamly dissapointing,...Was very expensive as well. Will not be going again.More

Held a 70th birthday celebration at the Great Northern (as I did for my 69th last year). The pub has a good, 'safe' atmosphere. The bar staff are welcoming and very efficient. We all had a great evening, and the drinks are very reasonably priced...for London. Will be visiting again before my 71st !More

Managed to fit us in - on a fully booked Sunday - for a lovely roast. Good food served efficiently with great drinks selection.

A grade II listed building in the Flemish Renaissance style. Interior includes an L shaped servery, which retain its 1897 counter, decorated mirrors which line the bar back, plaster friezes on walls and painted glass skylights. Now a Fullers pub, recently refurbished, with a good...selection of real ales, pleasant staff and reasonable (but expensive - fish and chips £14.50) food. Worth a visit if you are in the area.More

Good range of beers, drinks rather expensive, but otherwise good. Didnt eat here, found some comfy chairs and a table easily but the table was sticky and needed a good clean!

A fine pub with a great offer of beers. The location is very fine and the offering of drinks is large. You can taste one or more pint, choosing on the selection of +20 beer, from different countries. Good choice also for a lunch at...reasonable pricesMore
