Summary

“A pub with better pizza than most pizzerias!” sums up the appeal of this converted boozer in the backstreets of Olympia. “Stick to the excellent pizzas”, though, “the rest of the food is not amazing and the little tapas never quite hit the mark”. Sibling to the Oaks in W2 and W12.

Summary

“The pizzas are the best” at this “good local hangout” – an attractively converted ex-pub in Brook Green; the rest of the menu is now modern tapas, which some locals judge “less impressive”.
