I visited with my sister and her boyfriend who lives just round the corner - this is his local. This is not a fancy pub to look at, in fact it is the opposite - which is quite nice! You would not expect the amazing food that is on offer when you enter the front door. I have been a couple of times now for drinks but this was my first meal here. It didn't disappoint. Everything on the menu sounded lovely. It is a small, seasonal menu and changes daily. The quality of cooking is excellent. We sat outside to eat, late, after a very hot day in London and the atmosphere was excellent. Will definitely go back.

Came for a mid week dinner on recommendation from a friend who lives locally. Really enjoyed the look and feel of the pub. The food was amazing. Had a stunning curried crab soup to start, lamb neck for main which was fantastic and then the most amazing meringue for dessert. Best pub food I have had in a long while. Will definitely go back. Service was great too.

Friends treated me to a birthday dinner. Cuttle fish on toast as a starter was excellent - disappointment with one main, undercooked and tepid didn't stir much interest with waiting staff who were otherwise attentive. Good atmosphere.

We chose this restaurant as it is rated one of the best in south London for Sunday Lunch on many online reviews. Unfortunately we were very disappointed and couldn't quite believe the reviews were for the same restaurant/pub. The roast beef was served on a small side plate and the beef was very fatty. I have had many Sunday lunches in London and can only describe this one as below average. There wasn't much of an atmosphere and the cleanliness of toilets was poor. We wouldn't head back or recommend.

When we moved to Stockwell, the Canton Arms became our nearest pub so we decided to investigate. Nothing frilly, we thought a basic pub that served pub grub. How wrong we're we!! The beers are great with a really good selection and the food is amazing. Not your run of the mill pub fare and you couldn't eat here every day.
If you want something different and a bit of a treat it's the place for you. The menu changes daily. On the board there are meals for two to share. The oxtail was brilliant. The menu has dishes like: Hampshire Petit sale, lentils and green sauce: pearl barley risotto with cal cot onions and pecorino sardonic. Very different !!!

Highly recommended
