My very first English pub. After arriving in London and losing 5 hours it was time for lunch.

The food was okay. more

A very nice grown-up pub. Huge traditionally decorated, quite grand feeling interior (dark, heavy curtains, leather sofas, big glass vase of lilies, gold framed mirrors). Large pub garden with smart outdoor furniture. Dogs allowed outside and there were some families with small children.

Excellent service both times I've visited. On one occasion the barman was extremely knowledgeable,... more
