We stopped in for a late lunch. We were pleased to be offered a carafe of ice water with lemon while we decided what to order. We started with onion rings, which were great. Appeared to be hand-breaded and fried to perfection. We had a...More

Nice food and drinks. Not much waiting time before the food came. One of the only drawbacks were that it was a bit hard to have a conversation.

While the pub is in a great location and has a lovely atmosphere, some friends and I dined here yesterday and were thoroughly underwhelmed with the food. The menu certainly oversells the standard of food we received and felt that the Sunday roast was well...More

The staff at our hotel recommended this nearby eatery, owned by the same family who own Stanhope Arms a few blocks away. The atmosphere is similar--rustic, charming and friendly people, but the food was a cut above. This was, by far, the best meal we...More

The Hereford arms is in a really great part of London. It has some outside space and the bar area is pretty good too. Some decent beers on tap and a nice relaxed midweek atmosphere. Food looked pretty good too.

Cheers for the review Stuart, Hope you enjoyed the beer, we try to only stock the best beers by bottle and draught, come back soon, we change our selection pretty frequently! Ben

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Hi there, thanks for your question, yes we do do a cauliflower & broccoli cheese on the Sunday Roasts. We recently made some changes to our menus and so that's probably why no one has mentioned it yet. Hope that helps & we... More

Good morning, we do have a ramp to use to get in to the pub, but I'm afraid the toilets are not wheelchair accessible. Please do let us know if you have any other questions.
