Having been to the Tate we were just wandering past the Oval looking for somewhere to eat. Google found this place, we walked there (past several closed pubs, it was about 2;30) and it was a lovely surprise. The beer was good, the staff were...More

This used to be my local, so I've been many times. It's got a great garden and is always good for a few drinks. Sadly, the person running the kitchen last night is an absolute disgrace. I had the shepherd's pie for £16. It came...More

Dropped in here prior to visiting the OvalHouse Theatre for early dinner with my daughter. Buzzy bar, at 1740 on a Saturday, with just one table free. Friendly helpful staff, decent gastropub prices (for London) and really tasty food - chicken kiev and the house...More

I’ve just finished my meal here and I can’t praise the food here enough. I had the ham hock terrine followed by the chicken pie. They humoured me by bringing me some gravy with my pie but the meal was absolutely delicious. The pie was...More

In the past year, this place has a newer, restricted menu of good pub food. It has a pleasant feel inside, nice booths and tables, good beers and cheery (not entirely on the ball) service.
