Bought by Ecclestone's daughter (apparently his local, although I never saw Napoleon himself in there).

No doubt the plans for the next Punch Bowl are already well-advanced.

Like others before me, I felt that this was essentially a restaurant (or gastro-pub) rather than simply a pub. We didnít interact with the barman, other than to order drinks and pay, but had a longish chat at the bar with one of the regulars, who spoke very highly about the quality of the food. But I didnít eat there so canít comment; in addition it was very quiet mid-afternoon on a Wednesday (there were only three of us in there plus the barman) so as you would expect there was no issue in us getting served ahead of diners! They had a couple of real ales on Ė Bombardier and Adnamís Bitter. The Bombardier was an eye-watering £3.40 a pint; not the most expensive pint I have had in London, but it is certainly up there in the leading pack of expensive pints! The one thing that this pub does have going for it is an enviable location in a charming little back street away from the madness of Knightsbridge and Brompton Rd. So, donít go to this pub if you are looking for a traditional backstreet boozer, because it doesnít pretend to be one, but it is a reasonable refuge from the nearby shopping mayhem of Harrods.

Agree with most reviews. Went in today for a pint and rather wished i hadnt. Every table had a reserved sign on it. After paying £3.20 for a pint of Adnams without a single word from the 'barmaid' (the price was pointed to on the till) i jokingly said " i take it the bar stools arent reserved" Cue nonchalant stare so evocative of the disgustingly rude east european staff we have to put up with these days.
How indicative of todays standards. They bent over backwards for the diners mind...Christ.

Called in here recently on a quiet Monday afternoon. Pleasant, light and airy bar area, bistro style serving a decent but pricey pint. Its a good find so close to the bustle of Knightsbridge.

I do agree with previous reviews about the staff - despite the quiet session (only 6 customers) the immaculately dressed barmaid was aloof and not disposed to pleasantries. I'm sure diners wil take preference on busier sessions.
