Definitely the best bar in this area of London. The staff understand the meaning of service with a smile. Old style décor, including a burning fireplace, make this a much loved boozer frequented by locals and travellers alike. A range of real ales was on offer. My only gripe would be for the pretentious menu. The food itself was very nice but also very expensive.

I'm surprised nobody has reviewed this place for a couple of years. I was here on a midweek lunchtime and it wasn't overly busy inside. Although there were a few on tables just outside, enjoying the unseasonal weather. Our primary purpose here was business and dining. But we did sample a couple of ales, of which there were 3 - Harveys Sussex Bitter, Otter Bitter & St Austell Tribute. Cider was Aspalls. I must say that the food was good, especially the fresh bread and the sizeable doorstop sandwiches. Seemed to be more of a food-oriented pub, as opposed to a typical boozer. But it may have just been the time of day.

A pub refurbed in what the designers think an old pub should look like (stripped back to the wood floors tables etc) though it's a reasonable attempt. had three ales on - went for the Hogs back TEA which was vinegary and on the turn. Took it back and the barman pulled some and tried it himslef before agreeing and turning the pumpclip round and offering an alternative (Otter in this case) which was a decent pint. Would drop in againif in the vicinity.

If you want to wait over an hour for a measley salad and a bowl of tasteless pasta at £10+ then this is the place for you. The service is appalling and the food is dire. Due to the time it takes for the food to reach the table this isn't a lunch time option as you need at least 2 hours (1 of hunger) in order to get any sustenance. The management should be ashamed of themselves!

Busy, food-orientated operation but still very much a pub. Bright interior, nice relaxed atmosphere and plenty of bar staff, even at busy times. Three handpumps - two of which usually offer Pride and TT Landlord in good condition - but annoyingly you do often have to ask for a top-up. Attractive exterior enlivens North End Road.
