This is a small pub with a really cool outdoor patio. Inside, it reminds me of a classic western Saloon and there was even a piano player playing classic saloon music!

Amazing beer food served (deviled eggs, breads, olives, cheese plates), and of course good beers on tap. A great place to hang out at all the time if you live nearby,... more

There are a few places in the area if you know where to look that rival or better this pub. Although there is something quite magical and Dickensian about this pub on a cold winters night.

Defiantly worth checking out if in the NW5 area but wouldn't travel out of my way to visit if not. more

Cider and a friendly 'wiggling' barmaid - awesome!!

This pub is welcoming and charming with seriously sweet staff, and lovely chatty punters. I was a little bewildered by the great choice of cider, so I asked the barmaid to recommend one. She gave me some advice, and let me dry three different types before I decided to go with the amazing (but strong) cider that is brewed in rum barrels. As... more
