My wife and I dined here and we always like the pub and it’s garden with heating and sometimes a cat ! We are there last night and I had pork croquettes - not great just about edible - and gammon with egg and chips - very average at best. My wife had terrine which was ok and then sausage and colcannon. Not particularly good either. Pretty cheap and we have eaten here before and enjoyed it. Maybe it was a bad night but the quality seemed very iffy.

Visited on a snowy Sunday after friends could not praise enough this place. Even if busy it seemed hectic and unorganised. Delay in food can happen when busy and cooked fresh but at least keep the punters in the loop!
Saying that the roast was good and the chocolate fondant one of the best I’ve ever tried! Would definitely give it another go!

Hi Jules,

Thanks for your feedback. Last Sunday was busier than expected and we had missing team members which caused some delays in service. I agree with you that it is important to communicate with the guest when this happens. On the plus side, I'me very glad that you enjoyed the food, especially the chocolate fondant as it is a new addition to the menu.
In the meantime, I hope to see you again very soon!

Regards
Francois

This great pub a short walk from Vauxhall is the perfect place to go and unwind. The classic British menu never disappoints and the staff are always more than helpful in accommodating you.

Booked 10 for a special 90th birthday lunch - keen to ensure that our senior family members would have a trouble free day of wonderful memories together. BINGO!
From the moment of arrival, throughout a brilliantly served range of roasts and other delights we bathed in their sunny state of mind. One of our overdelighted group dropped his wallet on the floor and we were called by Rena within 15 minutes of leaving to alert us. With £80 cash in there we were delighted at the goodwill shown by the team there. Thank you Marina, Rena and Francois. You can never know how important it was for the day to be so perfect!
