“Surprisingly good food and charming service” make it worth remembering this historic hostelry (refurbed in recent times), near the Royal Courts of Justice. You can eat in the ground floor bar, or in the upstairs ‘Pig and Goose’ restaurant.

Opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, this traditional but updated historic hostelry is worth remembering for its “unusually interesting pub food”, both in the ground floor bar and upstairs ‘Pig and Goose’ dining room.

Summary

Too few reports for a rating for the traditionalist-looking, first-floor restaurant (with open kitchen) of this revamped, black and white, half-timbered pub opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, but one early report suggests the chef is helping its gastropub menu punch well above its weight, as do many initial online reviews.

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).
