Description: Since 1712 this lovely pub in West Norwood has been a place to gather, socialise & relax. Today its purpose remains exactly the same. The bar's stocked with products we're proud of and the kitchen is a hive of creativity and passion. Our philosophy's pretty simple - keep it quality, local and seasonal. We also have a great beer garden!

Needed a venue that wouldn't blow my slimming plan, decent WiFi and free parking. Expected to eat in the dining room but clearly not enough demand for Tuesday lunch. Enjoyed a vibrant, tasty smokey bacon salad and got lots of work done. Place filled out later so it's popular locally. Going back next week so obviously a hit.

After a bad start with the booking, the staff pulled out the stops to make it up, food was great too

Visited for a friends birthday and ordered 2 roast dinners. One had lovely pink roast beef, the other was all brown. Portion was very small for £16.50. They were presented very nicely, but consisted of 3 very hard (almost stale) roast potatoes, half a carrot and a couple leafs of cabbage in a very runny bland gravy. Not worth the money at all! Was still hungry so later ordered chicken wings, one portion had 5 decent size wings, the other only had 4 much smaller wings in a pool of sauce. The food wasn't 'terrible' but for the prices being charged, it's all style over substance and there is a severe lack of consistency in what is coming out of the kitchen.

The food I can't complain about but the incompetence of the staff is beyond belief.
We were warned by people how bad they were and they weren't wrong.
After making a booking and chasing for nearly 2 months only to find they'd ignored our booking and booked another party instead afterwards.
Don't bother booking for a large group.
