Can't deny that the refurb is plush, neat and tasteful, but it's not really a pub anymore. All the charm that made it what it was has gone. Pity.

Now a gastro pub, was reviewed in the Daily Telegraph a couple of Saturdays ago.

I dont do gastro pubs, so I wont be going in

This pub has undergone a transformation and is now called The Thomas Cubitt. It's effectively a posh pub where you go to eat, rather than drink. Now down to one real ale, although it was a well-kept Old Speckled Hen. Food is pricey and I didn't have any.

Previously would have agreed with the other comments, however today went in a group of 9 for lunch (pre-booked a table).
When the food finally arrived 45 minutes later, 2 dishes were inedible, and another 2 were incorrect. On trying to offer some constructive criticism, was informed (fairly aggresively) that: "this is a pub, you shouldn't come here for food, there are plenty of other restaurants around". After complaining to the manager, he took the almost overly generous step of offering his business card, so we could "phone our food order in beforehand" next time. Gosh, thanks, we'll be back in time for tea...

Last pub we visited on our crawl and this was a very welcoming pub. The beer was nice and the barman had a chat about the local pubs in the area. It has a very nice relaxing atmosphere and is a mix of locals and "need a drink" tourists from Victoria staion. We caught the train after our second pint a bit tipsy after a long day. Same again next year.

Three generations ate lunch at this pub, found it by accident and WE ALL loved our food. The price was not bad too. Friendly staff. Wonderful little church nearby, hidden on a sidestreet.

I cant understand why there are no comments about this pub, given how close it is to Victoria coach and railway stations and numerous offices. It's well used during the week at lunch times and Friday nights but quiet at weekends.

This is a well run and friendly pub on the corner of a posh mews literally 2 minutes walk from Victoria coach station. Good Guinness, good guest ales and a reasonable choice of continental bottled beers are available. Pricey, but remember where you are. The manager is a charming New Zealander who knows his business.

This underrated gem is worth your time if your in the area, the decor is basic wooden, but kept neat and clean.

A real border post, a few yards one way rough and ready Victoria, a few yards the other way unfeasably posh Belgravia.

Well done the Joiners, your an oasis.
