Nice old pub. But at Sunday lunchtime, it seemed to be all diners. All tables were laid out for food, making it uncomfortable for drinking. The various rooms are full of character. Ales were Timothy Taylor Landlord, Sharp's Doom Bar, Fuller's London Pride, Purity Ubu & Mad Goose & Rudgate Hop For Heroes. None of the ales really appealed to me. I went for the Rudgate one, having not seen it before. But as expected, it was not my kind of beer. I did later notice a few interesting looking bottles and cans in the fridges. But it didn't seem like a place for a drinker at Sunday lunchtime. So I quickly moved on. Worth seeing for the interior though.

Well run, good drinks, traditional service, hedonistic food. The locals are very fond of it and it's almost as crowded as the churchill down the road most nights. If you get a table, you need to guard it with your life.

Nice beer, but spoiled by incredibly rude staff.

A group of us visited this pub on Saturday 26th November and were lucky enough to find a table as a large group vacated one not long after we arrived. Several of us ordered food over the course of a couple of hours. However, we were abruptly asked to vacate the table "because it had been reserved". No reservation sign had been on it at any point, nor had any of the staff mentioned this when we had ordered food or at any other time.

While I understand that mistakes can happen, the best option here would surely have been to make us aware that the table would be required at time X, so that people who were eating did not have to move -- they had served food to the table no more than five minutes before asking us to move from it.

During the process of moving us from the table, the bar staff also managed to clear away two mostly-full drinks -- which were replaced when I complained -- and to lose at least one food order, of which they later denied the existence.

The range of beer and cider was good but we won't be going back to somewhere which can't even manage basic politeness to its customers.

Great pub, full of character and a cracking beer garden with a bar in the back for those summer evenings.
Lots of nooks and crannies which aren't ideal for bloaters like me to negotiate but a good buzzy atmosphere.
Forget about getting seat friday evening though.

Excellent range of beers and ciders. Westons Old Rosie at 3.70 a pint will finish you off nicely.

worth a visit , interesting inside too many booked tables and had a poor pint of Copper Dragon,will try again hoping its an off beer day. The Uxbridge which I have been to a few times has much better beer than here, shame could be a classic.
