We enjoyed eating here so much that we went back a second time for dinner. The fish and chips, shepherds pie with lamb, mushroom risotto, and smoked salmon were all delicious.

So many of my friends started their advice giving on my honeymoon stop in London with, “Loved London, hated the food.” They described London fare as boring and bland. So, my expectations were not high. Jet lagged and starving we weathered the cold to come...More

Just a quick visit here for a drink as our hotel bar was non-existant. Good selection of beers and decent wine. It was standing room only on a Saturday afternoon so it must be doing something right. And all that without a TV showing sport!

Nothing special about this pub, even though it is certainly trying to be. The food was of average standard, and the drinks were overpriced although there was a large choice. The service was as expected.

An ok pub in London, I ordered the shepherds pie which was amazingly quick to be served and overly hot... Not sure if this means it was microwaved or was already in the oven.

Wouldn’t hurry back to this pub for either drink nor food. Food was ok with little flavor and mediocre quality. Beautiful little pub inside though. Lovely wood fire burning and nice atmosphere. Seemed clean enough. Menu limited in selection.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
