“Excellent home-made pies” make this “always enjoyable” classic pub in Mayfair “worth a visit”. They’re backed up by a “super selection of ales, craft beers and wine”, a “gin terrace” and a “great pubby atmosphere”“what more could you ask for?”

Not a vintage year for this classic, “slightly shabby” Mayfair boozer famous for “first-class pies, and well-kept beer to boot”. Fans do still applaud “excellent English cooking”, but a number of regulars filed disappointing reports: “standards dropping off…”; “didn’t live up to the hype…”; “the fire alarm in the kitchen went off they burnt the pie so badly!”

Looking for “great pies”? – You’ll find ’em at this traditional Mayfair boozer where they headline the bill of “good old-fashioned British fare” at “reasonable prices” and in “huge portions”; cask beer, “excellent chips” and Sunday roasts are all tipped here too.

"Sparkling pub with excellent food. Could have bathed in the sauce smothering the devilled kidneys. Beer well kept. Service spot on. "
