Went for a few drinks and to watch street performers from the balcony. It was busy but we were served quickly, nice atmosphere and downstairs is more cosy and intimate.

Travelled to London to see family. The punch and Judy provided excellent food and service. The landlord and lady are fantastic hosts. What a great advert for green king. Would recommend this pub to everyone and shall visit again.
