Had a lovely dinner here on the new patio. It's a great neighbourhood pub, and the warm service really makes it worth a return. Crowd is generally 20s-30s and lively. I've been a big fan of the Geronimo Inns pubs and this one is no exception - homey and quirky decor (like the nook wallpapered with Penguin book covers), friendly service, excellent wine list and fantastic food.

I work in Vauxhall and always seem go forget about this lovely pub, until someone suggests we go there for a nice lunch or leaving do!

The decor and atmosphere is really lovely. It's quite quirky without being in your face weird, combined with being a bit more upmarket looking than your average pub.

My favourite area to sit in is a section with penguin book cover wallpaper!

There is a good...more
