I met up with my Son and Daughter on my way to the Ideal Home exhibition for lunch. My Son had chosen the venue. The staff were friendly and able to make recommendations from the menu. Excellent food. Would definitely go there again when in the area. Then spent an hour watching the world go by from one of the... More

I ate here with a large group after LFCC on Sunday evening, so it wasn't a normal service experience by any stretch. I'm definitely considering the circumstances in this review. When we arrived, there was no table large enough to fit our group, understandable on such a busy weekend, so we had to wait and rearrange a little before getting... More

We have enjoyed a couple of previous visits and, when entertaining a friend after attending an exhibition at Olympia, we chose the Crown & Sceptre. The decor was the same but the menu was much smaller with a limited choice. I chose the Chef's Pie but, sadly, it wasn't available. I finished up with 3 Sausages & Mash. My friends... More

We picked this place due to it's location. This proved to be it's best and it's worst feature. Great in that it was but a few minutes walk to Olympia where we attended the France Show and worst because we were unfortunate to be in a room overlooking the street (although the secondary double glazing did muffle most of the...

I popped in with my wife, staff were nice and friendly. You can sit outside, weather permitting. The range of drinks is pretty good. If you're in the area and fancy a drink, it's perfect.

The best Sunday roast I have ever had in London. It was superb, the absolute best beef, including roast potatoes. I cannot lie, it was the best. It really was . You cannot miss this place ++++

We were staying at apartments down the Holland Road so this was our closest local. We had drinks and also food on two occasions, I had a nice burger and colleague had fish and chips - both were good. This is a busy pub with outside seating seating and lots of people taking advantage of it. Drinks are normal inflated... More
