OK, pub was quiet. Think they could do a lot more with Edward VII link.

Great service from super friendly staff make this pub a great option for Sunday lunch. Very popular with groups and families so if you're looking for a quieter experience go for a later lunch booking. Food is great and the wine list decent. A really lovely afternoon was had by all.

A lovely pub, however the servers were not very friendly and were clearly rushing around. The wait for food was very long, it took 1 hour 15 minutes for the main course to arrive. The wait staff were extremely busy and were unable to cope with the number of tables. It lead to a disappointing experience.

We did enjoy the meal but the service was terrible and slow. We also had a round of drinks that were not ours added on. It was fixed easily but still annoying when taking the service into consideration.
The roast was nice. Maybe could have been warmer but fine all the same.
This was our first visit since reopening and it was perfectly pleasant inside but was very sorry to see the old layout was gone. It had such great character. Still, I am glad it reopened and it had good ambience.

Had the roast dinner. The cut of beef was excellent, cooked to perfection. The carrot and swede and swede mash was also excellent and so was the Yorkshire! Potatoes were slightly hard but still nice. Gravy was tasty but watery and the horseradish was runny and tasteless.
Dessert was the salted caramel brownies. Excellent, but not for the faint hearted! Wine was nice, slightly expensive.

Terrific gastro pub. Imaginative food beyond the standard fish and chips which seems to have taken over the food offering at many pubs. Not to say they don't offer fish and chips- they do- but several choices in addition. The service was friendly and informative. The pub has a pretty open plan feel, so if you are looking for a city pub that will make you think you are in the country, this is not it. But if you are looking for a pub with excellent food and drink with a casual friendly feeling, this is the pub for you. The owners also have a pub (with jazz club downstairs) in Hampstead which i will be checking out on my next trip to London.

The pub was pretty empty for a Friday night creating a subdued atmosphere. The food was good, though it was a shame the restaurant ran out of green beans, one of the side dishes, even though there were so few diners! Excellent French fries and the hot smoked salad was very nice.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The pub is a favourite and I'm a regular.
Lower scores this time for the missing beans, and the lack of atmosphere for a Friday night!

Very cute, cozy, homey atmosphere on a residential street. Food was good and server was warm and friendly. Would recommend for a casual meal or drink if you're in the neighborhood.

I really enjoyed my experience at this pub, however, it was very noisy outside as some families bring very savage children that only shout just out of control and this is extremely annoying as we adults outside get disturbed and can’t have a regular conversation without losing the attention.
On the other hand my dog was very well treated by the staff and I really appreciated it.
