by far my favourite pub. just at the end of my road, only went there on a whim and found it to be a good whim!

Not such a fan of it during the day as its more of a nursery with no supervision then a pub. Big fan of the sunday pub quiz, its deffiently worth a visit!

Lovely pub, sister to the Palmerston on Lordship Lane. Great food, lovely friendly staff and good atmosphere.

The Sunday pub quiz is legendary and one of the best pub quizzes I have ever been to.

Also have had a large group meal here which was excellent and really well staffed.

Would recommend! more
