“Top local gastropub” in an Olympia backstreet that’s “better run” nowadays than during its original heyday, and after more than 20 years still “always delivers” a “well thought-out menu”; and can be surprisingly “buzzing and hectic” for such a tranquil location.

This backstreet Olympia gastropub is not the major destination it once was, but locals agree it’s still “at the top after all these years”. “They produce different menus morning and evening, seven days a week – the cooking is imaginative, tasty and reliably so”. “Amazing that they still maintain the unpretentious, high-quality food at such reasonable prices.”

“One of the top gastropubs around” – this backstreet Olympia hotspot is “past its best” according to some age old aficionados, but “the crowds don’t seem to have noticed” as its “buzzing every evening and for Sunday lunch”; “steak is a highlight” of an “interesting” menu.

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).

"Back with a vengeance after lockdown 2, a slightly bigger menu and finally some proper desserts to choose from. Excellent stuff, what a great pub. "
