Great venue, staff very friendly and pub seems well run, we had lunch which was very tasty and presented well. Most importantly the beer was great 👍🏻

Followed my new favourite Michelin guide to a pub close to Waterloo station.. this place came up and I thought I'd give it a go. Odd menu... it read very disjointed.. snails, gnocchi, cold soups, octopus stew etc... was really a weird combination of offerings......More

Went for lunch. Food was good but slow to arrive (they did just open) staff were friendly. They had good variety with some light options
