This substantial early 20th-century roadhouse on a trafficky route through Wandsworth is a “great local gastropub” with an impressively large following: a “fun place” with “good, daily-changing gastro-fare”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
