This was my very first stop on my very first trip to London. Wait, that's not true, we stopped at Tesco's on the way from the Tube station to my fiance's flat.

Anyway, my guide picked this place due to its location (within walking distance of his place), its ambiance (a pub-like atmosphere but with a classier touch) and its food. And I say he nailed it: I loved this place.

I was seriously disappointed in this pub. Most of the Geronimo chain have been pretty good, and we were just popping for a quick pint and a bite to eat before the cricket - what could go wrong? They had a table which needed to bevacated in an hour and a half - no problem, we thought, since we'd be off by then. How wrong we were!

Great place with beautiful big leather armchairs, fireplace.

The wine list is great, and the food pretty damn good, so you can have a very nice meal here. By pub standards the food's expensive.

It's a local pub in that you'd probably have to live nearby to know it's there.

The back garden is lovely in the summer.more
