Were here just for a drink. It is a nice pub and the beer was very good, but the service lacked. They were there immediately when we entered the door but when we wanted to pay they were not to be seen. It seemed like...More
Enjoyed a splendid lunch with my Mum here. Reasonably priced considering it's location. Cocktails were great and food was decent (the chunky chips are particularly good). Our server, Emily, was friendly and attentive, and made us feel very welcome.
The 20% off lunch deal is...More
I do like this place and you get a good pint in there but again like last year I feel there should be more bar staff on when this event is happening ... in the end I left because it was four deep at the...More
I visit London quite often, it has become a bit of a tradition to visit The Old Shades after venturing in with a friend after being in the pub next door. Before around a month ago I would have recommended it to anyone.
Excellent food and service. I had the cod and chips and my partner had a rare steak. We both cleared our plates which says it all. The waitress was very attentive and the food and drinks came quickly. We have no problem recommending this pub,...More
I must have walked past this place a dozen times and always thought it was a restaurant. Popped in with friends recently and was surprised by the character of the place. Helpful and friendly staff too!
Beyond awful, inedible, over-priced muck (it doesn't deserve to be called food) which took far too long to arrive. Poor service, half the drinks on the bar were not actually available but no one saw fit to remove them or even turn the pump clips...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
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
