Pub/restaurant is well presented and staff polite. However we arrived on time for our 21:30 reservation last Sunday only to be told that the kitchen had been closed due to there being too few diners that evening.

I suspect I'm becoming something of a pub snob, but this pub didn't wow me. To be honest, I came here sort of out of desperation (it's one of the few pubs in this area) and I only came as a launching point to meet friends before a night out in Mayfair. The staff was friendly and attentive and the beers and ciders on tap were pretty standard, but nothing really sticks out in my mind when I...more
