Found this pub just up the road from our hotel. Cosy, nice atmosphere, plenty of room. Food was really nice and reasonably priced. Would definitely pop back when we visit London again.

We visited here in May and enjoyed a few beverages. The beer was cold and so was the white wine which was good. Great decor.

A first time visit here, and very impressed. It's a lovely pub, with great atmosphere, good service, welcoming staff and although we didn't eat here the food looked good and the menu extensive.
