user reviews of Lord's Tavern, St John's Wood

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Depressing downmarket pub in an upmarket area. The place is like a bar at a railway station or airport. Dirty toilets with paper all over the floor and the lock was missing.

A dull interior, loads of TVs everywhere and a pint of Marston's Pedigree for £4.30. Drinkers seemed to come from the estates of Lisson Grove, not that there were many drinkers in here and who can blame them.

Best avoided.

OK, BITE, you can chuck all of the 2004 reviews out of the window.

While the decor didn't exactly give me a sense of the history or cricketing significance of the place, the beer selection was small in quantity but high quality, and the food was out of this world. Prices aren't cheap, but much less than you'd expect, given its location, and very reasonable compared with its local competition.

We went there on a County Championship day which meant that we were probably the only non-cricket players/spectators/pundits in the house, but we felt out of place probably for a maximum of about 30 seconds, until I went up to the bar and was put at my ease by the very friendly and helpful staff. I'll definitely be back.

The burgers, by the way, were top notch.

embarrassingly bland.

The pub is being refurbished and relaunches today- Friday 18th March. With fantastic decor and a new and improved traditional pub menu I am excited to try the new Lord's Tavern. It will be completely different from before, with new management and staff. It really is exciting to see how different this fantastic pub will be!

The only cricket-mad pub I've ever been to, it's on the tv and everywhere you look, perhaps unsurprisingly, as Lords Cricket Ground is behind it.

Nice and clean, large and airy, tends to be full of Upper Middle Class Caucasians on test days - which wasn't when I went, hence all that room.

Drive past and check out how heaving it is when there's a game on. Only if you're that boring, mind you.
