Nice pub in a good setting. Starters crab and prawns cocktail. Main course sea bass was very good. Hake main dish was way too salty as also the greens. Service was average.

The gazpacho was oily and oddly sweet, the aubergine parmigiana was overcooked, the house wine was unimpressive... and the bill was £84 for a light lunch for three. There are several better places within a few hundred yards (e.g. Theo's, Phoenix, Camberwell Arms). We won't...More

This restaurant has a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and fantastic, friendly staff. It's so nice to visit somewhere where you can hold a conversation without shouting! The menu is great and all enjoyed our food. Will definitely return.
