Things started off well but went really bad service-wise once the food was served. Upon entry we were greeted by either the manager or owner. Not definitely sure what his position was. Very cordial and friendly, escorted us to our table. He worked the room...More

Came here for lunch as part of a large group and enjoyed the experience. Service was friendly and efficient. The food is good quality, but not the cheapest. Unlike almost all other pubs, they add 12.5% service charge to the menu prices and drinks, so...More

Too bad more British pubs were like this or their rep for dining would get better: civilized, good beer selection, friendly service, pet dogs on leashes enjoying the moment, clean, not overly crowded or noisy, and ... really good food. Actually the food is what...More

Located in a quiet, leafy back street in Earl's Court, the pub is welcoming and an absolute delight. A favourite with the local neighbourhood, this is also an experience for tourists. The food is not the standard fare, but a classic old fashioned country British...More

Came and watched 6 nations rugby here. It was a non-threatening atmosphere. Lovely seats by a fire and tv sound was just right. The food and the IPAs were good. Staff and fellow customers were lovely. You can reserve seats by the fire too!
