Went for an early dinner (6:30). Please was busy, with friendly staff. Beer was OK (they are a cask marked pub), and there was a reasonable wine select, I had ribs, they were hot with a good spicy sauce, severed with chips and a small dish of cold slaw. Reason for 4 stars rather than 5, i had to ask... More

It was very lively on a Saturday evening, was annoyed at myself for not booking a table! The beers are good and the bar staff very friendly. We did get a table and with that we got table service which was much appreciated. We had fish and chips and a burger both of which were great. The fish was tasty... More

Went with a friend on a Saturday night for dinner, though the music and conversation was very loud (why do rugby players have to shout at each other?). The starters of pimientos de padrón and crab on toast were great and the cheeseburger also fantastic. An asparagus salad with quails' eggs was less good, probably unsurprisingly as asparagus are totally... More

The place is round the corner from nottinghill metro station. Have tried couple of times and it never fails me. One of my favorite places to hang out in london. Great drinks and great food. If you have the time you should go for a drink or a bite. It also has an outside seating area which i prefer

This pub has an awful habit of reserving tables and putting the time when the party is due to arrive on a board on that table. They rarely turn up on time if at all causing other customers who want to sit down to leave after just one drink. Never, ever reserve tables on a Friday evening or you too... More

A great atmosphere and tasty food. The only downside was the service - six of our dishes came out at the same time, and we then had to chase for the other two when we realised that no more dishes were coming.
