We ate here for lunch before the Tour of the ground and used the discount voucher that comes with the ticket (food only) There seemed a decent choice of menu dishes, not huge, but something to suit everyone. We both had the 'Guest' curry and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was quick and it was a nicely presented dish.
We ate outside - under cover - and it was a good atmosphere.

Only two slight negative points. The cloakrooms could do with sprucing up a bit and I wouldn't recommend the coffee. I asked for a 'flat white' but it came out of a machine and was on the bill as a latte. I didn't find it a pleasant flavour and despite the fuss and the steam, it was only just about warm enough to drink - which is strange as I usually need to let mine cool for quite a time. Other than those small points, which I didn't bother to mention to management, it was a good place to dine and we enjoyed the meal.

My third visit, took friends who where over from Australia for cricket and march day drinks. Great atmosphere, even though it was very busy the bar staff where brilliant getting served did not take long at all. Nice selection of drinks on offer. Can't fault the bar staff, the service of drinks or the atmosphere.

BUT the front of house/seating attendant was unfriendly, kind of on the rude side and just really made you feel like you we're not welcome at all. Others I was with also commented on this.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the service here. Obviously they are used to a quick turnaround to fit in with cricket matches, and although they didn't rush me, the food arrived very quickly and was better than expected. The lamb shank pie I ordered was like a Desperate Dan cow pie, with the bone sticking out the crust, but it tasted very good. The chips were somewhat undersalted but the ale was interesting. Not cheap, but not ridiculous and it was a comfortable experience.

A very nice Pub right next to Lords. Very clean with excellent service and well priced for London. You can just feel the history when you walk In and it's very child friendly.

We came for lunch after the Lord's Tour, not expecting much. There was a discount voucher which was part of our tour entry ticket, and never having much luck previously with this sort of promotion, didn't expect great things. How wrong we were!

This is a great little pub. There was a choice of inside or outside seating, with a few nooks and crannies here and there to add a bit of character. We had a warm welcome and the service was very pleasant and attentive.

The menu choice was not extensive but well chosen and the portion sizes were generous. There is a real English flavour to what is on offer - but there was nothing gimicky. It was all well chosen and put together. We had everything from ribs, to steak to the pie of the week and there wasn't a morsel left when we were done. The chips were particularly excellent.

This is just great pub food without pretension - no wonder Lord's promote it with the discount voucher.

This must surely be THE place to be on a match day.

Walk from here to the Abbey Road studios and recreate that zebra crossing moment......
