Summary

Rambling, “shabby-chic” Kensal Green landmark, still ticking all the right boxes for its glam’ 20/30-something following; in its large, “laid-back” dining room, the food’s “nothing too exciting” but “enjoyable”.

Summary

The decor at this “charming” Kensal Green fixture is “an object lesson in shabby-chic glamour”, and its “super-helpful and glamorous staff” serve up lovely food of “gastropub+” aspiration; nowhere is perfect though – “parking is tricky”.
