“The crème de la crème of gastropubs!”; this “always jam-packed” institution, near the Old Vic, is again voted London’s No. 1, thanks to its “hearty” British fare at “unbeatable” prices; “just a shame you can’t book” – “arrive early”.

"No problem getting an unreserved table for a Thursday lunch in October. I wasn't blown-away by the food : "worthy and interesting" with a hint of spice in most of the dishes. Service was pleasant and willing, but busy and forgetful. The ambiance is typical informal gastropub, scrubbed tables, mis-matched chairs etc. Convivial. £43pp"

"Food seems to have taken a step down in quality over the last year. Service still somewhat offhand. Atmosphere always good, but seems to be not quite the level of a few years ago, overall"

"Really great bistro food, nice selection, mostly seasonal dishes and a different and interesting wine selection. The slight mark down for service only arises because they are so busy and you have to put up with that as the price for a wonderful evening."
