Came here during a recent 24 hours layover in London. The decor is exceptional, even for a city stocked with old and well ornamented pubs. Mosaic, marble and raised reliefs of friars all blend together into a seamless whole, to transport you to an bygone era.

Nice pub for food and drink. Service pretty fast. Hard to find tables during the late lunch hour. My husband said the bangers and mash were just alright. I tried the fish and chips and mushy peas which also were just Ok. Wish the food was better because I enjoyed the pub otherwise more

Still one of the most authentic pubs in all of jolly ole.

I will grab a pint here every time I'm in London.

Even if the whole pub staff are Italian, I'll still be here.

Brexit will change the face of these pubs very soon.

Cheers, mate. more

Horrible service. Especially the curly haired barmaid. Super rude and basically has no idea of what customer service is supposed to be.

Skip this place. It is owned by a chain and there is nothing authentic about it anyway. more
