Went for Sunday roast. Lovely restaurant in the back, and they accommodated our pram which was unexpected. I had the beef roast, served with a nice helping of gravy and duck fat roasted potatoes and Yorkshire pudding and veggies.

I am an American living in London and I can't tell you enough how beyond tired I am of the pubs here... all of them look exactly the same, have the same exact (bland) menu, and staff the same hipster-type people.
