|Although I am loath to say anywhere is perfect, I am hard pushed to find fault with the newly refurbished Wargraves. |
I have used this traditional one room, corner boozer sporadically over the years but it always suffered from inconsistencies and failed to hit the mark as highlighted in previous reviews.
Most recently though on a trip to London I used the pub 4 times in a week and it hit the mark each time. Firstly they have four hand pumps on the go and all of the ales I tried (Young’s bitter, Young’s special, Otter Bitter and Tribute) were all very well kept and available at all times during my stay.
Secondly the food has been ramped up considerably but thankfully not to that generic gastropub style with prices to boot. Instead they have a good selection of pub grub, fish & chips, bangers & mash, proper pies, bubble & squeak all freshly prepared in the open kitchen (with no microwave that I could see or hear) and most things under a tenner.
Definitely one of the best pubs in the area and well worth a try.

|Really, really disappointing food. I guess I should've smelt a rat when I saw the chef had a McDonald's bag, but never mind.|
Service lady told us to sort ourselves out when she brought the plates over, because she didn't know who'd ordered what. My chips were possibly the greasiest chips I've ever had. Big let down.

|A Youngs house which is an oasis of relative calm away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Edgware Road. Sadly the tables and comfy chairs which used to be located under the windows near the bar were a casualty of the refurb to which the previous poster has referred. That said, the refurb has not, in general, impacted adversely on the pub’s atmosphere, and the bar service remains generally quick and friendly. Unlike most Central London pubs it tends not to get packed out early weekday evenings with office workers having a swift pint or 3 before heading back to the suburbs, something which I, for one, particularly appreciate.|

|Undergone a refurb in the last year. Great looking from the outside, lots of plants etc, Youngs ales on and a bigger whisky selection than Scotland. Drinking one a week it would take over two YEARS to try them all!. One word, BGA.|

|I was welcomed into this traditionally furnished Youngs pub by a friendly Irish barman and served a decent pint of Youngs Bitter and a very fine meal, both in short order. The craic between the barman and the locals was worth a listen, too. It was a bit chilly to use the pavement drinking area, but the road outside wasn't too busy at lunchtime so it might be worth it in Summer.|
