We came here for a roast and it was excellent. We had a great waiter called Joseph who recommended an excellent red wine, really knowledgeable. Joseph made excellent recommendations on the menu, he knows his stuff!! He is a safe pair of hands!

Description
A grand old dame of a pub at the heart of Herne Hill. Situated opposite Brockwell Park we are just a short walk from the much loved Lido. Serving modern British pub food using only freshly cooked, seasonal produce. Sunday lunches are particularly busy, so we do recommend booking. Family friendly, dog friendly, date-night friendly, spot of food and then drinks for a celebration friendly, bring your folks for lunch when they are visiting friendly. You get the idea - we are quite friendly!
