Staff were nice however, there is not always somebody in the reception. Amenities were average. The only plus was the bar which was very nice,warm and cosy. Too many mid-aged local people and guests were dancing crazy.

Friendly and cosy traditional pub. Well kept beer, attentive Anna's quick service. Fairly priced for central London. Booth layout at back of pub good for giving some privacy for meetings over lunch or drink. Great chips!

This is a charming and friendly pub, delightfully hosted by the charming Pandy. It has a great combination of modern dishes and traditional pub food. Servings are generous. Really enjoyed it and will be back.
