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.

Southwest Eleven WOW we’ve used this amazing venue twice in the space of nearly 3 months (22 December 22) for my surprise 60th birthday and (15 March 23) for my big sister’s celebration of life funeral reception. This venue was perfect for both events it...created such an amazing intimate ambience from the interior with a bar which had interchangeable luminous different coloured lights, a stage area for live music DJ set up or even performances (we had a gospel singer performing at my birthday party) and the sound quality from the venue speakers were superb. There’s also some space to dance on stage or on the floor area if you want to boogie suffice to say our guests utilised these spaces really well practically non-stop dancing all night to the excellent music being played. There are 3 big booths with tables that you can put together or separate to walk in between the gap to get to your seat without disturbing others. Come to think of it it was spacious enough for dancing as l saw many a guests standing up and dancing in the booths. There’s also a back dinning space which is on a platform adding another dimension to the premises we organised this space to maximise the seatings and to comfortably fit in the caterers by pushing the covered pool table against the back wall which we used to store the desserts/salad bowls, plates and utensils. The exterior secret beer garden with fake grassed semi sheltered tables/benches seating smoking area with disabled access has huge glass windows so we could view what’s happening from either outside looking in or inside looking out keeping us closely connected throughout the night. This makes the venue stands out amongst others as this fabulous cosy area meant that none of our guests were loitering outside the very front of the building causing any disturbances to the community making our function truly special and private. On both these dates we were extremely amazed by Dmitri’s warm friendliness, professionalism, he was very accommodating because he allowed us to decorate the venue from the night before in order to help take the stresses out of the funeral day. In fact we found all staff from the Security Guard at the door to the barman were all excellent. My family and l highly recommend Southwest Eleven for all your special occasions if you’re wanting something unique and classy? Well what are waiting for contact Dmitri and book your events today we did twice and we will absolutely 100% book with Southwest Eleven again.More

After the raving reviews on Trip Advisor about the high quality of the burgers, we went to the The Grove ... for a burger. Disappointingly they had no veggie burgers available. "Their supplier let them down." We were assured that they would have them available...again on the next day. So we made our way to The Grove again. This time there were neither veggie nor beef burgers available. I was told that the supplier let them down again. (Well, there is a supermarket next door, so perhaps that would have been an option?) No real 'sorry' from the manager. Perhaps the place has changed just to be more of as drinking joint. Try your luck with the burgers but have a backup. Not much fun walking through the pouring rain trying to find a decent alternative.More

Good fish and chips, charming service. Too loud music for us (family), but probably fine for younger people.

Went here with friends to watch the England World Cup semi final game. The staff (I think Dylan was the barman) were friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. It was 2-4-1 burgers when we visited, and I had the chicken down under burger,...with a very tender, huge piece of chicken. And served with massive chips! I believe my friend had the full nelson and the beef burger in that was massive! Another friend had a sharing platter and we couldn't finish it. We also had a toddler with us who had sausage and mash from the kids menu, which looked delicious. He certainly enjoyed it. Once the match was over then it was open mic night, which I believe happens every Wednesday. The regulars (I assume they were regulars - it was my first visit) were very friendly and we didn't feel like outsiders at all. Them and the staff made for a great night - just a shame they couldn't make the football result a bit better!More

Came in for one drink with a mate, realised how cheap it was compared to every other pub in Battersea and stayed for the rest of the night! Ended up eating and struggled to choose from the huge amount of burgers on offer. Had the...Bluesy Lucy and was so impressed that i'm sure to go back and make my way through the menu. The chips were proper home made ones too which made it even better!More

My wife and I recently stumbled upon this place on our travels last week, and so glad we did. Met with a warm welcome, and quite a sight to see, pop culture references and such eclectic decor! The food was large portions, and defiantly worth...the money. And i'll admit i'm quite a picky eater, and the staff couldn't have been anymore helpful in making sure my needs were met. My wife had the Napoleon Burger, Brie, bacon and onions, are real must try! we'll be back!More

Really cute little pub tucked back from Battersea Park Road - friendly staff, plenty of characters and decor that a person has actually thought about, rather than designed in a boardroom. There's always a real family feel and the food is some of the best...(and biggest) in Battersea. Definitely worth a look.More

Popped in here after completing one of the attached escape rooms for a celebratory pint. Great pub with loads of character and something to inspect in every corner. Looks like they had loads lined up for the month, and the food brought to the table...next to us smelt delicious! Will definitely be back to try it for myself!More

Don't judge the pub when you walk in, the menu is great and selection of beers to match! We opted for burgers which we tasty and large, and priced really well for central London. Nice atmosphere and great staff.

The Grove is not your run of the mill pub. It looks like a cross between a student union bar and a comic shop. You'd be making a big mistake if you dismissed it because of its quirkiness though. It's a friendly pub which offers...a full bar and excellent food at ridiculously cheap prices for London. It has a wonderfully laid-back feel, aided by the excellent music played at a volume which still allows you to converse without shouting. There are regular live gigs of music and comedy and themed party nights. It has built its reputation on its tasty burgers, yet, for me, the jewel in the crown is its Sunday roast for around a tenner. You get a huge portion too. You may not need to eat for the rest of the day! Well worth a visit.More

We stumbled on this quirky little place, it's a cross between geeky sci-fi and school days memorabilia. The menu is basically burgers but there is nothing basic about them. They are as quirky as the surroundings, so tasty and great value for money as we're...the wines. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We all had a different type of burger and all were equally delicious. So if you fancy something a bit out of the ordinary this is the place to try.More

Not sure, don't think so, look on Google maps but you'll find some on nearby streets probably easier in the evening though price wise
