“Another Guiness in the garden at this great pub”
About
Taken over by siblings Richard Haines and Rosie Wesemann in late 2006, the pub has been revitalised - in a good way. We wanted the Scolt Head to remain a pub first and foremost, serving excellent food without becoming another soulless gastro bar...more

Visited on Friday afternoon for after work drinks. The place looks good, and the beer garden is very nice and relaxing. They have a good selection of beers, and the service is efficient. It got very crowded towards the middle of the evening.

We stop here for sentimental reasons every time we come to London - and it is great to see a crowd enjoying the sunshine in the garden here today. Always welcoming, we always enjoy this spot.

Corner location so the footprint of the place is triangular and it has a decent sized garden in front. Why do I like it? Because it's three pubs in one. The main area as you walk in has the air of a country boozer with...More

I visited this place last night as a friend was having a birthday do there. It's been two years since I was last there, and the place has really gone downhill, mainly in terms of a really bad attitude off the staff. For example, I...More
