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.

I live locally and rarely visit this pub. However, as my local pub was fully booked for Mothers Day, The Andover was able to squeeze me and my Mother in Law in. I have to say, the service and the food matched, if not bettered...our local, The Anglesea. I will certainly be returning with friends and family, but will book well in advance in the future, as this place is obviously in high demand, and I can see why.! Perhaps I should not post and keep quiet? JS Dalling Rd, W6More

It has been a few years since I visited this pub for their roast dinner. I must admit I am gutted at how disappointed I am. It used to be a large slab of shoulder lamb slow cooked this time it was two slices of...forgettable chewy lamb. Vegetables were scare but service was friendly & prompt. Overall I am disappointed. Realise times have changed but I’m happy to pay more than £23 for a slow cooked lamb shoulder.More

I have visited this lovely pub on many occasions now. I love the cosy, friendly vibe of the place. The service is always on point and the staff seem happy to be at work and are always happy to help. I've only ever been in...on a Sunday, my last visit was a solo one and prior to that, I have been with my partner and/or friends. Their roast is divine!! My only issue last time was that they didn't have cauliflower cheese back on the menu :) The drinks selection is wonderful, I sat at the bar during my last visit and the young lady being the bar was more than happy to indulge me in a few of my cocktail requests and they surpassed my expectations. I can't wait to visit again!More

Booked lunch whilst visiting London for a gig. Fabulous little pub; lovely vibe and the young bar staff so welcoming and warm. Plus food very tasty indeed! Not cheap, but thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Would return if ever passing through again

A return after a long time to a pub well known for its roasts The pub was relatively empty even though it was a Sunday, and 1 p.m. but a bit later it filled up There is a good choice of different roasts, and we...went for the beef and the lamb As a starter I had the pork terrine which was good, a basket of bread was execellent - with a variety of foccacio, fennel and olive bread The roasts were very good with generous trimmings of greens, carrots, roast potatoes, parsnips and Yorkshire pudding with a little pot of gravy and horesradish cream and mint sauce To finish we shared the honeycomb ice cream very good, and mango sorbet - not so good, it was full of ice crystals - maybe melted and refrozen? There is a good choice of wine but prices escalate rapidly - we settled on a Mendoza Malbec which was perfect with the roast red meats and was nice and at a reasonable price Service is goodMore

We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of the back room with the well tended fire. Enjoyed everything we ordered - charcuterie board, ox cheek, fish & chips, and burger. Cake w/ vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce was fantastic as well.

This was my first visit to our local pub since it reopened in mid-November following a period of closure. It is now under new management who have given the place a make-over while retaining the amazing old bar which is the focal point of this...traditional London pub. First impressions are good. It looks great and cared for again, it was pretty full for a mid-week evening - a combination of those eating and the regulars in for a drink. The small back room, which was always slightly awkward to sit in has had banquettes installed which really help to make best use of the space plus a plush curtain to soften the opening which really helps to cosy it up. The service is great - attentive staff who make you feel welcome and are busy taking care of people. The menu looks appealing with a combination of traditional pub dishes such as burger, steak or fish and chips alongside a couple of more gourmet plates such as pheasant. There are a handful each of starters and desserts too. I ordered the Wagyu burger with handcut chips. It was ok, but nothing extraordinary. It arrived alone on the plate with the chips in a little pot on the side, no garnish or anything else so it looks a little lost. The burger itself was very tasty but not a big a patty as you might expect, inside was a single lettuce leaf and a slice of large tomato plus some kind of jam which was also tasty. The bun was nothing special, the reletively thin kind you would buy in the supermarket - no sesame, not a brioche etc - so quite disappointing. The chips were ok, I’m not entirely such they weren’t frozen rather than handcut. In a nutshell, it was perfectly edible but nothing special and probably not worth the c£18 charged as it felt like the kind of burger and chips you could put together at home. All in all I would say, welcome back Andover, we’ve missed you, and good luck to the new landlords, we really want you to succeed. But I think for the prices charged for the food you need to up your game a little in terms of presentation and those extra touches that make the difference to a dish such as the humble burger to elevate it to the next level.More

Staying at an AirBnb right around the corner, of course I had to try the Local pub. The second evening I came in, I was treated like a regular and had made fast friends with several of the lovely characters there! While the time they...open can be a bit unpredictable, I am overjoyed to have spent a couple of sunny summer afternoons and cool summer evenings of my London visit chatting, eating and drinking on the front patio! Service was quite good and the food -- typical pub fare-- was excellent and I very much enjoyed my first London Bangers and Mash! If you want a touristy visit to Hammersmith, stay over by the Tube station and the Great West Road. However, If you want to visit an authentic London Local, I can't imagine that there are any better examples than this!More

Visited this pub based on TripAdvisor reviews. First impressions were good, it’s a traditional London local pub and authentic. Service was fine, a bit uninformed and disjointed, but we’ve got a hospitality staffing crisis so that’s forgivable. Food really wasn’t good though. Handwritten menus are...cute but difficult to read. When our two mains arrived one was scampi & chips which was standard and un-mess-up-able really. The second was sausage & mash which was truly awful. Horrible excessively lumpy mashed potato with overcooked sausages which had absolutely definitely been either reheated in a microwave or rehashed in an oven - definitely not cooked fresh. Yet that was the special of the day. Lazy kitchen I’d say. Also we were the only good customers do it wasn’t busy. Cheap & cheerful but I certainly did not see or eat anything that merits four or five ratings.More
