“Unbeatable in the gastropub category” – this characterful Fulham backstreet boozer is “still exceptional even though Sally Abé has left” and, yet again, was voted London’s No. 1 pub in our annual diners’ survey. Specialising in game, its “traditional” menu is “more elevated than is usual for pub fayre” and “cooked with flair and enthusiasm”. The place still looks like a pub though, and they do a mean Scotch egg – it’s the “gastropub experience at its best!”. (In September 2021, Jake Leach was inaugurated as the new head chef).

“Fabulous game” is a highpoint of the “simple food, cooked to perfection” (“mouthwatering meat so tender the knife just fell through it”) at this “super-fine” hostelry in the distant backstreets of Fulham – for the second year, the survey’s No. 1 gastropub. Full credit goes to head chef Sally Abé for her “top flight” evolution of traditional dishes, but it can’t harm to have input from backers who include Brett Graham (of the currently defunct Ledbury), and also the UK’s most prominent game chef, Mike Robinson. Aside from the small amount of space dedicated purely to drinking, it feels like an honest-to-goodness, fairly unreformed boozer. Top Menu Tips – “venison scotch egg is to die for, as is the Sunday roast”.

“Terrific game dishes” (not least “the best venison specials in the whole of London”) are highlights of the “interesting menu” (culinary oversight comes from Brett Graham of The Ledbury and Mike Robinson of Berkshire’s Pot Kiln) at this renowned hostelry, lost in the distant backstreets of Fulham, which finally seized the crown for the first time this year as the survey’s No.1 gastropub (from The Anchor & Hope). “This is a pub where the food takes pride of place and drinking is incidental”, but it’s a “perfect mix” of the two, preserving the “informal” approach of a traditional boozer (if with very limited space for non-diners).

For 31 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).
