Food is okay, but not authentic. Very much like a chain. Same exact menu at The Albert. There are better places. Don't settle.

Thought we'd try the Sunday roast, service was quick even though it was busy, but when the meals arrived potatoes were hard for all three meals, mentioned it to the staff who said they would speak to the kitchen, didn't hear any more about it.More

Seemed like a popular bar as there was a lot of people in. Even so, got served quickly. Good bar staff, friendly and efficient. Good atmosphere but, like a lot in London a bit pricey

We stopped in for a drink and lunch on our 1st afternoon in London and found a table but discovered (like a lot of pubs here) that you order from the bartender and bring your own drinks back. They bring the food to you, you...More

Visiting from the US, we wanted a nice dinner at a "very British experience", and we got it here. The atmosphere was superb, the food was scrumptious and the cleanliness was spot on.

We were steered to this place following a walking tour where they offered a discount for the tour participants. The food was good overall but was a bit pricey for what it was and the service was a bit lazy. Just OK.

Called in for a Monday lunchtime drink. Fantastic service at the bar. Drinks expensive. Struggled to find a table upstairs due to a section of the area being sectioned off for a private party. So, went downstairs and sat at a table. However, within seconds...More

First of all the vibe of the pub is nice. But that's about it. When we ordered we were told that we'd probably have to wait 30-35 minutes for our food, which was okay. But then we ended up waiting 50 minutes and the lady...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Not near the Pulman Hotel at all. Silver Cross is very close to Trafalgar Square, I don't know about a roast dinner every day but possibly it may be served on a Sunday.
