Great pub, lovely food. Nice atmosphere and you get well looked after. Probably the best pub in South London.

Menu card is one page, there are vegetarian and vegan meals also. Classic English cousin, draught beer from a couple of neighboring countries. 🍻 Very kind staff; what else one needs for a great dinner? Try it, if you are here! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Absolutely lovely food (very reasonably priced) and the company was even better! Tom the manager and his wife are two of the friendliest people you could meet and they will defiantly greet you with a warm welcome!

I very rarely post reviews but had to as I was so impressed - it's hard to come across pubs that have such a warm, friendly community feel in central London but this definitely hit the mark. The manager Tom is a sweetheart, the drinks...More

So glad we found this spot. The service was excellent and so was the food. Not the look of a traditional dark pub, but all new furniture and finishes. We will definitely go back the next time we are in London.

Convenient option if you are looking for food after visiting the museum, especially on a Sunday when there are not much options around. Food was ok, nothing too exciting, but staple British pub food options.
