This pub has a nice atmosphere with a great selection of beers. We visited after a conference at Olympia and enjoyed a very nice bit of food and drink.

£9 for a Jack Daniels and Coke and about £5 for a few chips. Now, I know it's London (and I'm from Birmingham where every double spirit is under £4) but £9 is extortionate. £6/7 I'd say fair enough, but £9 is shocking and we certainly weren't going to stay the night at those prices. Apart from this, the pub... More

While staying at the Hilton Hotel Olympic down the street (see my review), we happened upon this local pub and stopped in for dinner. For those who are unfamiliar, when in a pub in the UK, you generally order at the bar and then it is served to you at your table. Service was good - no issues there. I... More

Next door to the Olympia exhibition centre. At the end of the Kensington High Street - close to tube and train- stations. Newly refurbushed tiny 8 room hotel on top of a pub. Very welcoming. We stayed on the top floor - many stairs so not fitted for people with walking-difficulties, but they offered to carry our luggage. Very nice... More

Lovely ambience sadly let down with a cold meal - the food was taken away but even the second time it was only luke warm, though they had provided fresh chips. Not many people were eating...maybe that's why!

Felt like I was in an episode of Fawlty Towers - any training that the staff might have received must have been from Basil himself! Ordered our food from the menu we had been left and most of the menu was unavailable (a blessing may be?). Average tasting food.

This is a fullers pub style restaurant, the London Pride beer was flat considering the venue was displaying a Fuller sign outside you would have expected a decent beer but sadly not. The service was slow and the food over priced. My starter was smoked salmon at £7.75. This came with toast and a strange horseradish style sauce, pretty small... More

My colleagues and I were at a conference at the Olympia and fancied a quick bite to eat. The place looked good so we thought we'd try it out. I wish we hadn't. The potted shrimp looked pathetic in an oversized kilner jar 1/3rd full. A salad that should have come with melba toast came with burnt focaccia. Chips were... More
