Cutest pub in London and for sure a photo opportunity not to be missed! And if it's Christmas-wait till you see it!

Just down the street from Portobello Market and a great stop after.

Oddly, there is a Thai restaurant in the back which was pretty good!

Of note-across the street is a great bakery to grab that much needed sweet to complement the Thai spicy! more

The cutest building all covered in plants & flowers. quite funny because it is half pub & half thai restaurant which is such a random mix. We enjoyed both sides! Sat at the pub one day during the rugby Six Nations match & came back the next night for some Thai food for dinner. At the Thai restaurant all the food was really tasty & had a good amount of spice. more

Granted, London is know for its rude people, but there's no one ruder than that old battle axe who runs the Thai restaurant in the back.

"You have one hour. One hour to eat and then you go," is her standard greeting I heard repeated several times while others we being seated. Service was reasonably quick and efficient - the old lady probably starts cutting off digits if they dally too long at... more
