In context: this review is for a booking for a party of 40. Diners in smaller groups may have a different experience.

The pub itself is very well preserved Victorian street-corner pub. The bar is very unaffected and I can imagine happily settling in for an evening. The beer range is a tad disappointing. Sharp's Cornish ales are so ubiquitous in London these days that something different would be welcome.

The dining room upstairs was very nicely set out for our group, and the bread and oil that we started with was very good.

Unfortunately we had 1-2 people looking after a very large group. I'm not sure what the problem was, but our reservation was 7pm and we didn't actually get our first course until almost 8:30. This seriously detracted from the evening.

The food itself was very good. The Guinea Fowl breast that I had was very tasty. There was a comment that the Toulouse Sausages were "not very Toulousian", but still very nice, and apparently the accompanying Puy Lentils were excellent.

Desserts were simple, sensibly sized, and all the better for it. Unfortunately a few of our group had to leave to catch trains so they missed out.

All told, I'll come again in a smaller group. Unfortunately the service was so slow that 3 stars is a charitable rating.

The environment is interesting, the staff were very friendly and chatty. The food was average, we chose t order tapas as there were five of us eating. The taste was ok, nothing to write home about!

Food is not bad but is expensive for what it is. Good beer selection. Staff aren't very friendly really, they make you feel like they're doing you a favour by being in there and don't treat you well, almost to the point of being rude. It's well located with a nice outside- don't make any particular effort

We walked from our hotel seeking food/drink and had OK overpriced food/excellent ale and I will do it again the first night if near Regent's Park BUT whenever I want better food/ambience I will catch the tube to Churchill or Black Friar or Three Crowns or-if early enough to beat the crowded quaffing of the after work young lions/lionesses..unless I am seeking them :) -Princess Louise
