When in Victoria/Slone Square area this an excellent pub, the beer is well kept and the food on offer in top grade, really good quality, the wine list is pretty good as well. This is a very popular watering hole. If you want to eat best to book a table in advance.

I hate writing a bad review especially about a famous pub beautifully situated near Sloane Square. I am told that it was the haunt of musicians in the thirties and of the landed gentry in the fifties and sixties. I telephoned to book a table for four people and a dog. I phoned at least four times. Nobody answered the phone. Twice it appeared as if someone picked up the telephone to stop it ringing and put the telephone back on the hook to cut me off. I then emailed and asked for confirmation of my booking by email. None came. I then booked via the pub's website. No response. This was over a period of about four days. Eventually, I spoke to someone and ordered a table for four and a dog. I arrived on time to find that there was no table available downstairs, but the lady behind the bar had my booking and directed me to go upstairs to table 7. I have been to the pub before with my dog and know that normally dogs are not permitted upstairs, so I was surprised. When we got upstairs we were told that we could not have the table for four upstairs, because we had a dog. Finally we were found a table downstairs, but by this time I was having to be calmed by my daughter. The Sunday lunch was about average for a pub managed by a brewery. My impression was that they were very short staffed. When my bill arrived I found that that I had not been charged with a drink. I owned up and paid the extra, but I did not feel like giving a tip, in spite of the invitation to do so on their card machine. It is a pity that my review is so negative, as the pub is popular and provides a pleasant ambience. It's prices are reasonable and if it were better managed it would be fine.…

Located in a part of London where the average annual household income would be north of £400k you would think this place could try a bit harder. Not particularly clean the real shocker is the staff. They wouldn’t be out of place in a 1970s B movie set in downtrodden Hartlepool. Slovenly dressed, taking their time but happy to charge sky high prices. Asking about the beers marked me out as a time waster, this was after he had deigned to interrupt his conversation with his colleague. But then I had the temerity to ask if the bottled beers were cold. ‘They’ll been in the fridge” was the helpful response. They weren’t cold. Have you any others? ‘They have all been in the same fridge’. I cave in. I had to ask for glasses. Oh dear. Anyone would have thought I had asked for solid gold goblets. The glasses were warm. Can you cool down in some cold water please? I get a cursory rinse in warm water. And give up. Never again. And people wonder why pubs are going bust. …

The Antelope is a characterful pub serving tasty food..today we had steak pie and chicken schnitzel, both came with mash and greens, and my pie came with a little jug of gravy. Good plain food, and great value.

Good choice of wines at good prices, and bartender kindly points out bottle is the better value - Tops! Many wellsounding light choices including freshly made sandwiches. However the salmon is definitely a good choice.
