I'd been a couple of times before the new opening after the refurb and it was always good. They've done a really nice job - nice decor, lovely garden and the food is obviously homemade, and tasty. Me and a couple of friends had their sharing boxes and it was perfect! There area few good places to go in Kingston... More

Now, I understand this is a lovely pub in the heart of Kingston Market, however it has certainly changed over the years... This used to be a great place to nip in for a quick pint or a good session with friends but now you have to nurse your pint all evening or risk needing a bank loan. A pint... More

Hi Thank you for your feedback,i'm a little surprised that you find our prices so high as we regularly compare our prices to other bars and pubs in the area and in general only JD Wetherspoons appear to be cheaper than us. Yes we do have beers that are £5, but we have plenty of lagers and ales that start... More

After being a regular at this pub, I am disappointed with my recent visit. After ordering food, I found the service shocking and the food even worse. There was hair in our food and not only were the portions incredibly small but not as advertised. Such a shame as the food used to be great!

We turned up just after 1pm, all starving as usual. Ordered drinks and headed for the garden out back. No menu on the table so went back inside. Ordered food, reasonably priced. Food was delivered, my wife's was wrong, and there were no other "box" foods so settled for the steak. Step son and his girlfriend ordered half chicken. It's... More

Nice inside with a garden too. Some discreet to screens for sports lovers. High and low and sofa style seating in various alcoves. Their prosecco is really rather lovely.

I've been here quite often over the last year and thought it time I finally left a review. Charming pub that's full of history, and will hopefully be here for many more years to come. It feels exactly like a old pub should, while managing to still feel fresh and manages to balance the pub/food side well. Service is great,... More
