This is a nice pub in Covent Garden. The food is really good, the waiters are friendly and prices are in the average. A good choice if you are in Covent Garden. Kids will be happy with Fish & Chips and adults too, with a great choice of sandwiches and grilled meat. Remember to order a good pint!

Came here with a large group of friends. Food is fantastic, delicious and reasonably priced. The vibe is great! A jazz band in the main area of the pub, and then music out back in the stables area, which is a covered outdoor area. Had loads of fun, felt safe and was a good crowd of mainly older (30's +)...

I've given this place four stars because it's great the independent owners are trying to do something different from the formulaic gastro pubs around, but they do need to get their act together. Now we've been in here at weekend's when it's full on dancing with Dj, great music, outdoor area and packed bar (later on in the evening, early...

We went in search of a Sunday Roast. In addition to the regular menu, which features a very god jerk chicken, there is a choice of Roast dishes on a Sunday. £11 something for roast, yorkshires, veg and roast potatoes. The meat was really good quality - they advertise free range and organic, and I would say this showed. It...

My friend and I came for lunch. The staff was helpful and friendly. We weren't always easy but they smiled the entire time. The server, Dupley, was especially friendly and helpful. I now have a new go to place in London. Thanks for making my day memorable.

The £12 for 2 English breakfasts advertised in the window attracted us to this pub. Lovely atmosphere on the first floor and nice friendly staff. Everthing was nicely cooked which set us up for a day of shopping and site seeing.
