As we were staying at the Staybridge Suites Hotel next door, it seemed rude not to eat local. I'm really glad we did. The pub has an excellent selection of beers and the ones I drank were very good. The food was equally good -...More

Ale selection is excellent, everything from IPA to stout. Food is well prepared, seasoned and presented. As a food snob I recommend the salt and pepper squid and the duck. Both a taste sensation. Staff are pleasant and welcoming. Prices are extremely reasonable for London....More

I am from the North and visited friends in London - on Sunday 12th September we visited this pub for Sunday lunch - it was, without doubt, one of the best roast dinners I have ever had! Yummie!

Lots of outside space to enjoy, next to a small park. The menu is a cut above normal pub food. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Very good roast! We sat outside on the picnic tables looking over the park and had a lovely Sunday lunch. Would definitely go again, just make sure to book as always busy!

A regular lunchtime and after work haunt pre-lockdown, I was keen to see how it has adapted to the new guidelines..... Advised to pre-book, (easy), greeted on the door and chose to sit out in the beer garden. Fantastic service, attentive to all our needs...More

This is a sit down restaurant. Part of the reason to eat there is the ambience and the wonderful service. I love this place. I would contact the restaurant to inquire about takeaway.

Yes definitely. We had 2 grandchildren with us and they were very well looked after. Plus there is a play park just across the lane where the kids can burn off some energy after they eat
