Very conveniently near to Euston Station if you want a traditional pub with traditional good food rather than eating a Burger King on the way platform. As with London pubs the £4.80 a pint of bitter is always a shock I should be used to it now but London overheads are astronomical for them too long guess. The atmosphere is... More

If you want a home cooked meal this is you place. Funny pub it is. Very traditional. The misses cooks the food and that is what you can eat. But oh boy is good food.

Wonderful setting . Service was excellent . We were late by an hour due to our guest flight. The meal was amazing as always. Initially we all ordered the crab but it was finished. Although it was a disappointment the beef replaced was very tender with good presentation . The crumble was lovely but the macaroon my sister ordered was... More

This a small, old style local, reasonable prices for London and the sandwiches were delicious and good value. We were just visiting the area but were made to feel welcome

There are two parts to this establishment - the first is in the open Atrium area and is a very casual café. This is the only place I'd tried (or even knew about) until I booked a table for four for a breakfast meeting. Upstairs, away from the madding crowd are white table cloths and a serene atmosphere. It proved... More

Walked past here more times than I can remember and finally decided to come in and have a pint. What I like is that it's not full of tourists (no offence meant to tourists!) it's just nice to find a 'local' in central London that's 2 mins from my front door. Staff are polite, other punters seem nice and the... More

Lunch and a few drinks here today with friends. This is a small pokey Lott place in the back streets of Paddington. It's a bit grubby and basic but the service was friendly. We had some baguettes with drinks and it was ok. Food is cheap.
