Summary

In a “brilliant location” opposite King’s, this “convivial” staple serves “simply presented” carnivorous fare at a “solid” and “fairly priced” level (but “we’re not talking about Smithfield’s St Johns!”); “interesting cellars” an added boon.

Summary

Whilst “it’s mainly a pre-theatre standby”, according to the general consensus, this operation opposite King’s is worth remembering for its dependable (meat-focused) traditional British fare.

Summary

A “good pre-theatre standby”, opposite King’s; there are those who feel its “traditional” British menu is perhaps “dull-looking” and “a bit inconsistent”, but on most accounts this is a place where the cooking (much of it meat-focused) “tries hard”, and there’s an “interesting value wine list”, plus “excellent cask ales”.
