This pub is brilliant! We went for my birthday drinks a few weeks ago, and the staff made us feel so welcome, especially the land lady! (what an awesome lady she is!). The food was ace, all beautifully made and accommodating a big group, it was great atmosphere in the back room. We got some song choices played and we had a little rave up! The drinks were quick with a great selection of shots, and beers on tap. This is my favourite pub round Newington Green far better than Alma, leconsfield (what is that place!?) and beats Dissenting hands down for atmosphere. Great job Cellars keep it up and no doubt il bring the crew back for another knees up!! Yeeeaahhh!

OMG!! This place is amazing outside space with deck chairs, stunning interior. What's about this place, so much space, busy for a Tuesday compared to other pubs visited last night defo over 25 age group which suits us, Great Ales and well kept, staff friendly and had knowledge what they were serving. Rather then stating it's an ale???

Music was a stable volume for Tuesday although after speaking with the landlord he did not mind 3 people having a relationship on a lovely sofa in the dining room. I have to say, I found it inappropriate whilst having a meal with my mum.. I will advice him again on my next visit as he was approachable that 2 women and 1 male converting is rather off putting.. I gathered he was a gay man which does not bother me but he should not allow this behaviour in a eating area. The lovely gay man serving us stated he disapproved but it was managements decision to allow such behaviour!!

Entirely agree with Clarence_Beeks on all four points.

But to update, Saturday night a couple of weeks ago, the music is still terrible. I expect to hear that kind of banging chart stuff at the Slug and Lettuce on Croydon High Street.

I have 4 things to say about the Cellars.

1. Food is very nice, excellent portions, but despite this it's still rather over priced

2. The music is terrible, but has been getting better. As someone else says, I'm sure some of the younger bar staff have better taste. If not stick to classics in the musical canon. But James Blunt and chart house? Please.

3. They should take down the garish, sign in the window informing passers by that the Kitchen is now open. It looks terrible.

4. The beers are good - especially in terms of what I need - and the decor is beautiful and tastefully refurbed. Still something missing in the back room I think. Does the real fire work?

5. Finally, a very small point, they shouldn't have changed the name from Edinburgh Cellars to The Cellars. Asking to be called by your nickname is a bit cringeworthy.

Looks like the Nobody Inn across the green is being done up. Hopefully keep them on their toes.

i disagree with the last persons comments........ The only place i know that does not have a microwave or a walk in fridge i have spoken to the old sous chef before he left and he sounded so proud that they DO make food fresh every day, as he said they only have 1 big fridge and 3 service fridges, so before people make rash comments about the freshness of the food they should get there facts right! If you really dont like the food well you should not eat it should you? Also i see you dont comment about other peoples pubs or food so i think maybe you have a vendetta against the cellars islingtongrubmonkey, perhaps islingtongrubmonkey is a local publican trying to bring down the cellars. Well me and my group of friends are locals and regulars. We enjoy the ever changing menu's the kitchen team produces on friday night i had a excellent beef and guinness stew, while my girlfriend had the rabbit pie and we both enjoyed it very much and would recomend the new deserts i have said before that the deserts needed a bit or work but the new menu's deserts are amazing i had the treacle tart with dorset clotted cream was yummy, and my gf had the chocolate torte , and that looked fantatstic, we was really impressed and every one i have spoken to who is visiting the cellars says the same sort of things to me so i think its funny that islingtongrubmonkey slates the place but each to their own but i tell you i would love to have sunday roast with you sometime and debate the food with you.

I would just like to add one further thing, my brother jamie had sunday roast on sunday with his little boy, and they said it was fantastic one had honey roast ham and my nephew had roast turkey.
