One of Oliver Reeds Wimbledon 8 and now a Gastro-pub.

Would not come again.

My lunch there speaks for itself. Can I just say at the outset that this was a works Christmas meal; I would never normally be seen dead in a place this expensive.

We were seated in the corner. Five of us cramped around the table. When my meal was served the staff got cross because they had to reach across me to set my fork, as if it was my fault we'd been seated at a table that was far too small and didn't allow them the access they required.

We asked for water, and were given a bottle that only contained enough water for 4/5 of our party. Our request for more water took another ten minutes to action.

One member of staff came and asked if we wanted salt and pepper. We said yes. Another came over and asked the same question.

And how much did it cost, for one course and a non-alcoholic drink? Think of a reasonable amount, then double it.

I thought it was bad before (see my previous review, back when it was just about, marginally, a pub not a gastropub/restaurant)....

One final detail. Even the pictures on the wall have price-tags on them. A steep three-figure amount for a lacklustre painting of Wimbledon Common. Says it all.

Nice little boozer tucked away down a side street. Good couple of pints of doom bar or some other ubiquitous ale, and friendly batman. Food looked great but phenomenally expensive. That said, ale not too pricey. Good for a pint or three if in the area.

The new nickname for the pub is 'two for a ton' alluding obviously to the high prices.
We visited on a Saturday, pleasant meal but meagre portions & the eyebrow raising bill.
Obviously filling a niche as it was busy enough. I wouldn't recommend it .

I went along to the Fox and Grapes this afternoon with a friend who had not been there since the refurbishment and subsequent inflation of the prices. We ordered the beef roast dinner at 19.50 and hoped it would be good! When it arrived the meat was extremely fatty, the carrots overdone and the green beans untrimmed. When we complained the person we spoke to (presumably the manager) was extremely confrontational and informed us that this cut of beef was very fatty and that the food was definitely worth what they charged as it was a very good cut of beef. They eventually took 20% of the bill, but the air of the person who spoke to made us agree never to go there again. Definitely a pub that thinks it's a lot better than it actually is, completely over priced and absolutely not worth a visit.
