I went to this pub with my girlfriend before seeing the Lion King in the theatre next door. We went in for lunch and a drink. We were immediately welcomed by some very friendly staff upstairs who chatted to us about the show and made us feel very welcome. The food menu was impressive and cheap, especially for London. I suspect however, that I know why the food was cheap... it was awful! I had the barbecue burger with chips. The burger appeared to be a slap of undercooked factory reject meat which closely resembled something I'd think twice about giving my dog. It was almost plastic in texture. I took one bite (before looking inside it) and left it, using the bun and cheese to make a chip sandwich.
The Mrs had lasagne which was average. The presentation was fine with a nice little salad and some garlic ciabatta but the lasagne was mostly cheese sauce which was slimy and what little filling it had was flavourless muck.
To conclude: Great pub for pre-theatre drinks and friendly staff, but they need to have a serious think about their abominable food.
