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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very fun and friendly pub. We were served by Rosa who was really funny and attentive. It was our first time coming here, we were recommended Skehans by a friend and definitely weren't disappointed! Great drop of Guinness as well. Thanks Rosa! We'll be back...to try the Thai food next time.More

This place has an incredible vibe and the staff are insane. In particular Rosa who was kind and attentive. She made sure everyone at the bar waiting to be served was acknowledged, so no one felt over looked. She was so lovely when dealing with...customers. Thank you for making our night incredible.

The best roast I had in ages! And very reasonably priced. We visited the pub with close friends and had a wonderful evening. Such a great atmosphere. We stayed for the life music too, which was a lot of fun.

Couldn’t have asked for a better pub. From the bouncer to the bar staff everyone was unreal. A special shout out to Ian who is truly one of the greatest men I’ve ever met! He made us feel so welcome and truly made the night!...The food is amazing, the Guinness is unreal and the music is top notch - it’s voted London’s best pub for a reason - don’t sit on this recommendation, you won’t be disappointed!More

We went for my friends birthday to the Thai restaurant and the pub afterwards.The Thai food was so delicious and the green curry sauce was to die for. I can’t recommend this place enough.Staff were so welcoming and very attentive.We were served by the lady...who looked like she was in charge .Did not give us her name.The pub was great atmosphere and it’s not a bad Guinness considering it’s London.More
