“Poor service and Very expensive”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

I was reccomended this pub and decided to hunt it down. It's in a nice quiet spot but there are quite a few issues. The staff are rather impolite and one barman told a customer (standing next to me) who had ordered a mulled cider that he HAD NOT (in no uncertain terms), when he presenting him with a mulled wine. I've never come across such rudeness and contept , in such a trivial situation , not even offering to change the drink. I would had left then but was hungry and didn't fancy looking around for somwhere else. We had a meal which was ok ,but not great,. The menu is basic but I did thing that over £16.00 for steak pie and a spoonfull of mash ...no veg....( well except a liitle carrot in the pie so less beef could be used) was expensive. The other 3 meals were all a similar price and veryalso basic . The bar wasnt busy being half empty but our party had to go to the bar to get a drink when there was supposed to be service.

“Management Philosophy IS NOT Customer Friendly”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

WE had been given by our bank some older British pounds that were still legal tender and in fact was taken by our fine hotel but the staff and management at this pub told us they could not accept it and made us feel that we were counterfiters and crooks in front of other customers. We will never recommend it again to anyone in our world travels and will never go back there. It was the most embarrassing experience we have ever had and I hope they lose business.

“Historically very interesting and quaint pub.”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Very good food, a bit pricy but the ambience is terrific and we enjoyed the entire experience. Difficult to find, but just around the corner from Hyde Park Corner Undeground station.

Great friendly service, funny, lively staff. Great pies and the beer is good. The pub has alot of history and if you want to see a great traditional London pub then this is as good as it gets.
