Decided to try an English pub. The exterior was so inviting as well as the interior and many types of diners (age-wise / work or holiday wise) and even a troupe of school children were accommodated while we were there. The food was tasty and...More

The food is great... so delicious. Unfortunately I was there when the restaurant was full so it took a bit of time for the food to arrive but that doesn't diminish the quality of the food. Great typical pub with typical pub food. Recommended

We dropped by for some lunch and a beer and was pleased with the pub itself, the food was lovely although the beer that I was poured looked like an apple juice. I've been poured some rank beers before but this topped it, the couple...More

It's right off Trafalgar Square, so that's the big selling feature. Great spot to stop for lunch when you're touring the area. Good selection of drinks (try the Old Speckled Hen) and the food is a bit better than average. The Fish & Chips with...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Not near the Pulman Hotel at all. Silver Cross is very close to Trafalgar Square, I don't know about a roast dinner every day but possibly it may be served on a Sunday.
