This place was down the street from the flat we rented so it was nice and convenient especially our first day in the city. The steak and ale pie was just what I needed after a long day of travel. We also found out that there are several other pubs in the Bayswater area and around the city that have different names but it is the same chain and same menu items.

If they hadn't forgotten our order, perhaps we'd know what the food tasted like, but after waiting for an hour and not receiving anything, we found that they'd completely forgotten our order (in a nearly-empty place, mind you) and we moved on to somewhere else. Absolutely terrible.

... but basic food is good!
Not so expensive, I would say. Good choice of beers (ale, especially); fast & friendly service. Do not expect nouvelle cuisine or healthy plates. Well: this is not the case.
On the front door they wrote that they serve "the finest fish and chips in London". Finest or not, mine was good and with generous chips and peas as accompaniment.
Cannot say anything about the more complex alternative the menu' could offer.
Just two remarks: 1) it is always quite full and seats are not so comfortable, and 2) no way that the waiter come to your table to get your order. It's up to you to make this happen!

We went at a non-peak time. Owned by same chain that owns other pubs. Great staff, met nice people and really enjoyed our afternoon ale break.

We tried this for Sunday lunch,having been in before for a drink a couple of times.Mistake!! My missus had roast chicken dinner,which consisted of half a dry skinny small chicken,3 tiny aunt bessie roast spuds,aunt bessie yorkshire pudding and believe it or not,1 1/2,yes,1 1/2 freezer burnt green beans!!! £10.49 I think!!,I had ham eggs and chips,nice eggs,packet ham and not properly cooked frozen chips for £8.49!!. On top of a very expensive couple of pints and halves,and 30 quid went in the blink of an eye,not unusual in london,but would've expected it to be quite a bit better for the money!!
