One of the best on Kilburn High Road, no draughts unfortunately but a great place to chill by the fire on chesterfields. Great Sunday roasts toomore

Decent pub. Decent menu. Decent food. This pub is buck-standard and a safe bet in every way without standing out in any way.more

It's good to hang out here for a drink before or after a trip to the Tricycle Theatre.

But don't order food. Good grief. Spend it on a KFC instead.

The £4.20 Manchego Spring Roll is a joke. Really? Two pieces of wilted pieces, with a dip of melted butter?!

And then the £3.65 Grilled Veg? More like 4 pieces of sliced courgette and one red pepper. It's like I've been served leftovers...more

Lovely, homely place. Great beer, reasonable prices (for Kilburn) and some great food. They've got some lovely benches outside, which in this sunshine is amazing. When the sun's out it's perfect for a pint of cider.

When it's cold, there are some lovely old couches by an open fire.

And the food! So good, great for a meal before seeing something at the Tricycle (which is just across the road)....more

In terms of decor this place is a gem.

Huge main room fantastically adored with amazing ceilings and floors, plus everything in-between. If you are interested in unique pub designs, this is a must-stop.

That said, I didn't eat and thus cant comment on the food. It's also a hotel and so reviews might include sleeping quarter experiences.more
