Dived in here to get away from the shuffling Portobello road madding crowd. Nice decor, comfy seats, decent beers and PEACE.

Another pub like so many others in the area that are void of any character. Beer was fine but if this is your idea of a good pub then your life must be dull.

I went to this pub on Saturday lunchtime 15/05/2010, to meet friend and have a drink and something to eat.
The food took over an hour to arrive- our order had clearly been lost. When this was pointed out, the staff were very unhelpfuland disinterested. One of our party ordered Sea Bass, what arrived was clearly not Sea Bass, but an oily fish- possibly Herring. When this was pointed out to the staff, we received a very hostile response. The food that I had ordered was delivered twice, not as I har ordered- I just wanted a plain burger- firstly got one with bacon, and then one with cheese- I had to go to another pub in order to eat.
I have been using this pub for over 40 years, and have never had such a bad experience. The attitude is clearly that they have a captive audience of tourists, so the quality of service and food is irrelevant, because people will probably not visit again. What is going on in this pub will just confirm to visitors, the bad reputation that the UK has for food and service.
I would advise everyone to go to the Earl of Lonsdale, a much nicer pub in every way.

Very overpriced tourist trap. Surprisingly dirty and grubby inside and, according to my wife, the ladies loos are disgusting with the floors awash with some 2" of (we hope) water. Had a pint of Hydes Brewery's Finders Keepers (the only ale) which was pretty good. The place this Saturday lunchtime was full of young , mostly female 'student' types who were occupying all the available seating but nearly all had empty glasses and none were eating. While I was standing there drinking my pint at least 20 people came in, looked at the menus, looked around at all the occupied seats and turned and walked out again - the management of this place must be mad!

This is just around the corner from Notting Hill Gate Tube. We went on a Thursday night and it was busy but not packed, so we could chat and all sit together. The seating is big leather sofas and posh red and gold chairs - comfortable and looks inviting. Chandeliers are a nice touch. Friendly bar staff, decent list of food and nibbles (snacks like onion rings are about 2.50, but this is is Portobello). Also has lots of copies of the wine list, which is pretty good. The Sauv Blanc at 5 a glass is decent, and even the cheapy house white is palatable. One last thing - the music played was right up my street, a mix of mild 90s (You're Still My Sunshine), Lilly Allen and the Scissor Sisters, etc. I also heard that there's a very attractive garden (it was cold when we went, so we stayed in). Totally recommended but don't expect a cheap night!
