Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a couple of side dishes and a couple of drinks. Slapped with a £5 service charge. Isn't it their job to bring me my order? Why am I paying £5 on top?

What a great gastro pub. We were slightly late into London after train delays and although they were just about to close the kitchen they agreed to let us order. The staff were lovely and the food totally delicious!

We really enjoyed the meals here (and the cider...) and had a good selection. Service is friendly and prompt. We had to sit inside because smokers were in the patio area, which looked really nice too. Inside is large and lovely. Near our favorite hotel...St. Paul's, so a good combination in Hammersmith area: good if you are heading to Heathrow in the morning.More

The server was an idiot! The food was outstanding! My £17:50 meal was charged at £19.69 with the “optional” service charge included. I protested and was told by the idiot that he didn’t know how to do refunds. Would I like a packet of crisps...to cover the difference? I now possess a £2.69 packet of crisps!! However the Cumberland Burger was amazingMore

Called in this evening at half seven, and there were a few empty tables. Four people looking dinner having read reviews and noting kitchen advertised as open to half eight. Asked the barmaid if still serving food and was told yes and take an empty...table. Went up to barman and asked for menu to be told the kitchen is not really open! Explained we had just been told it was and he replied ‘well we don’t have a lot left’. Then we asked ‘well what do you have left?’ and the answer was not a list of dishes but the bluntly delivered ‘well it will be a long wait’. Rude and unwelcoming - so we told him ‘tell you what, you clearly don’t want to serve us, thanks for the inhospitable welcome. We are going elsewhere’. Atrocious, rude, and clearly just could not be bothered!More

Bar staff unreasonably refused to serve us this evening beyond 7 p.m. because we had a child, even though pub was empty. We actually went to order food at the bar at 7:30 p.m. and staff hadn’t previously raised any concern that a child was...in the pub half an hour beyond their “curfew.” Again, the pub was pretty much dead, so no reason for a child ban. We’ve been coming here for 10 years and have been in as late as last orders with aforementioned child without any problems. We’ll be looking for a new local from now on.More

We had dinner here on Thanksgiving (yes, we’re American) before going to see a show @ Nells Jazz Bar down the street. We weren’t sure what to expect, having picked this pub based on location. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly and quick service...and the delicious food. I had a roast chicken with cranberry compote (as close to Thanksgiving as I could get) and my husband had a seafood tangine. We shared a burrata, pomegranate seed, and fig salad. Everything was fresh and nicely presented. There was a friendly vibe and the World Cup game on the television was fun to watch during dinner. I highly recommend this neighborhood pub!More

We stumbled across this pub as we looked for somewhere to eat close to the Marriott Residence. It looked cosy from the outside and we checked they were serving food, which they were. We expected ‘standard ‘ pub grub - wow, how wrong we were....I had the mussels and the halibut, and both were outstanding. We live in st ives in Cornwall so we often have good fish, but these two dishes were aiming at the finest I have had for several years. My wife had the steak which was also very good. The owner was really friendly as were the kitchen staff ( they were happy when I stuck my head round the kitchen door to say thanks! So first impression was a bit deceiving - much better than we expected. I hope they rebuild they customer base after the punishing pandemicMore

Cumberland A
Hi Adam, Thanks for your review. But of course I’m really sorry you didn’t have a great time when you had dinner with us. We remember your visit very well and it’s a shame we didn’t please you as much as the other 19 people in your group (some of whom felt the need to apologise on your behalf for your behaviour). I believe one of your colleagues has reviewed us below to comment on her good time at The Cumberland and even attached a photo. You’ve highlighted one of our members of staff as being condescending and other derogatory terms. I’m afraid I can’t reconcile your view with one of our longest serving members of staff who is recognised many times in person and in tripadvisor reviews as being particular charming and helpful. Clearly, your night didn’t work out for you but we’d be delighted if you would visit us again and we will ensure you are very well looked after. Kind regards, Mark (General Manager)
