I was travelling alone and wanted a drink and dinner, not neccessarily a good combination in London.Josie was very welcoming, very knowledgeable about the drinks and I felt relaxed and comfortable as a solo traveller.

Right across the street from Point A Hotel, very charming pub with impressive menu. Had the fish and chips and it was perfectly prepared. Enjoy!

What a wonderful evening. Attentive staff, superb food. We were a very large crowd and were treated to top class service with a smile - the amount of us didn’t phase them at all. Thoroughly enjoyable.

We did not eat here, although many do. We just came in for a late afternoon drink before evening dinner. Beers were good and house white wine good as well. Nice pub to come to and have a drink. Friendly staff.
