Traditional pub and restaurant in small Kentish Town. Good ambience, friendly and attentive waitresses. Three of us had pheasant and I found this tasty although one member of our party felt there could have been a larger portion. Would recommend this restaurant for a pleasant lunch.

A warm friendly pub in beautiful surroundings. We eat in here regularly and the food is always fantastic. Staff are friendly and welcoming and very attentive. A great selection of drinks on offer. We spent New Years Eve 2016 here and had a fabulous night, the band were brilliant! Highly recommend!

My wife and I took our three young children out for a Sunday roast and decided to visit the pub. The experience was superb. Delicious food, staff couldn't do enough, at one stage one waitress took the trouble to play with our three year old making his experience really special. The food was generous and delicious and the bill was... More

My partner and I come here often, both before and since moving to the local area -- the service is always friendly, and our dog is also welcomed with water bowls and treats. We love the gastro-food options, and enjoy eating both outside in the garden with views of the Fordwich bridge and river, and inside by the fireplace. Inside,... More

Booked in for 1pm and table did not feel crowded at all, plenty of space and we were warmly welcomed. Excellent three course lunch served, we were asked if we'd like a rest between courses or to have the next immediately, everything great quality and a very good bottle of wine with it. Left with promotional vouchers for money off... More

What a waste of time and money, don't bother. Everything is overpriced, £4.05 for a pint of 3.9% of Warm tasteless ale. Coke is flat too. No atmosphere, lack of communication between the bar staff and customers

We had booked a table for four of us at 19.00 but due to circumstances, needed to bring it forward to 17.00. Gave them a ring on the day and "Not a Problem!". Since our last visit there is new décor, new staff and new management. Everything was first rate, the food was great, the staff were friendly and attentive... More
