“Excellently located” near Richmond Park, and with a “lovely dining conservatory”, this upscale East Sheen gastropub makes “a most enjoyable and relaxed rendezvous”; with its “emphasis on seasonal fare”, owner Paul Merrett’s cooking “has been on a high this year” too.

“Everything was well within the tolerance of ‘excellent’ until we got to the puddings, which screeched into mediocrity” – the critic is pretty impressed by this airy sheen gastropub.

TO’s head man visits the new Sheen gastropub of Paul Merrett, “one of the very few chefs who have successfully made the transition from acclaimed, Michelin-starred chef to familiar face on the telly”. He finds the food middle-of-the-road and the service “young and very inexperienced”, but “prices charged are on the high side”.
