“Tucked away” in a backstreet off Hammersmith’s St Peter’s Square, this “top-end gastropub” is “a great place to chill out and eat better-than-average pub food”, especially in summer when the “glorious, spacious back garden” really comes into its own. Even a reporter who – unusually – said the food “didn’t quite hit the mark” thought the experience was “good value and well worth a return”.

“If Carlsberg made gastropubs...”, fans of this backstreet Hammersmith hostelry near leafy St Peter’s Square say it would be just like this, with a “roaring fire, beautifully-lit room, well-assembled wine list, and a menu which is driven by quality ingredients (and also with a garden that’s perfect for a romantic summer evening: twinkling lights and lots of greenery”). Not all feedback is so upbeat though: critics say it’s “rather expensive for what it is, with hit and miss service”.
