Travellers talk about
Walking into this charming pub is like traveling into the past, with its Dickensian feel and unspoiled interior, along with a unique collection of penny-arcade games and a 19th-century beer engine.

Sorry felt really let down here. Staff not as polite as you might hope. Beer is ok. You have to pay cash up to ten pounds. The bar smells of sulphur and landlady with white/blonde hair was rude to a customer in front of me...More

Lovely, historic little pub.... but your mood drops when served by one of the staff (think she’s the manager). There’s no smile, infact, she looks annoyed you’re even there. We asked for two Pinot Grigio wines which she poured and we later said it didn’t...More

Whilst no one was rude to me it was unsettling watching tourists walk in and be barked at, spoken down to and reprimanded for being ‘TOO LATE’ to dare to request food at 4pm on a Saturday. The pints are £6 which is fine if...More

Quirky backstreet pub in Belgravia. Bar up stairs and another area and bar down a steep set of stairs. The lower area has a ceiling covered in old photos of celebrities, etc and has other bits of memorabelia. Couple of nice beers and the staff...More

Just off the main streets of Knightsbridge is a quiet enclave with this delightful pub. The staff was helpful and friendly, the ale was great and the place looked like it came from a postcard out of the 1950’s. It’s a five minute walk from...More

Spotted this quaint little place and got most excited by it being off the beaten track. When the landlord eventually appeared, he thrust a menu in front of me and asked what we were drinking. Ordered pie of the day (x2) & sausage and mash....More

Called in for a lunchtime drink. There were only two other punters in there, one of whom was so entrenched in a deep conversation with the barman/owner that I had to stand waiting to be served for several minutes before the rude barman/owner deigned to...More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw

I’ve been there many times but never seen a man behind the bar. Just some young ladies (pleasant) and also a sullen, rude lady serving.
