“Best Scotch Eggs - Ever!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

First meal in London after 30 hour flight. Decided to try a scotch egg with lunch. After trying scotch eggs in every pub in subsequently went into, these were still the standout.

“Great place, great service and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We walked in without a reservation on a busy Saturday night and the restaurant was heaving, however the staff spotted us almost immediately and was up seamlessly to say they'd be with us as soon as, and true to their word they had 3 tables set up almost immediately for all 3 couples who were waiting. The place had a buzz and an attentive and busy service level, even with all the orders and food flying around we were still visited as soon as my partners glass emptied to see if he wanted a refill. I wasn't expecting much for the price paid but i was soooo very wrong, I had fish in a basket and there was so much of it too, I am a hungry person and I couldn't finish it all. As we'd gone in late we were even asked if we were intending puddings so that the kitchen could be aware of em before closing. Just great. Perfect hand pulled drinks and food and service. A real good find for delivering a decent pub experience.

“Tasty pub meal in pretty location and great service.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We stopped on the strand for lunch midway through a day of sightseeing around London. Walked in and were seated immediately in a comfortable table with a lovely view. We ordered fish and chips, steak frites with pepper sauce and a side salad. Fish and chips were beautifully cooked and h pepper sauce was yummo. Service was fast and friendly and house beer was very tasty indeed.

“Drinks outside”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Great location for this pub, and lots of outside seating to people watch! I can't say anything about the food but the service was friendly and the beer was good, this place would be very busy at night!

“Crowded but very good”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We arrived at about 6.30 pm, the restaurant was full, but we made a booking and took a 'buzzer' to be called whilst at the down stairs bar. With 15 minutes we were seated.

service was very good, meals great, wine good, all up would highly recommend for a good pub meal.
