Our tour guide recommended this place.

Standard pub fare & somewhat overpriced (though not atypically so for London), but very friendly service & relatively clean. Burger was quite good, and I loved the sticky toffee pudding. Other review noted free wifi, but that must be gone now. But decent place and very close to Natural History Museum.more
