Very fun little neighborhood pub with outdoor seating. Best fish and chips I’ve ever had! They were very busy but worth the wait.

Spent the whole afternoon there last week! Excellent food and service and a lovely atmosphere. A typical old fashioned pub with the added advantage of top notch food. Recommended and I will go there again when I am up by Paddington Station.

We reserved Sunday lunch and the upstairs rooms are cosy and pleasant. The menu looked good, albeit a little pricey, and included the usual fare of roasts and other house speciality dishes. Despite the fact that the pub was not busy, it took nearly 1...More
