While it may have been an off-day, I have to say the service and food were sadly lacking this Sunday. We came for lunch at 1pm and didn't eat until 2pm. First there was no one to help us locate our reserved table which took some time in such a large pub. Then I stood for five minutes at the bar with a bar-tender serving drinks to a waitress only to discover (from a friend) that they didn't serve customers at that location - there was a sign but it was not visible from where I stood and the bar-tender didn't bother to tell me. On finding the right part of the bar, I waited a further ten minutes to get served. Amongst other things I requested an ordinary water and a sparkling water but only a sparkling water was given and was told that was all I'd requested - sorry, not true. While serving, two of the bar-tenders had an argument. We were told that the food would take 45 minutes - which it did but regardless, you shouldn't have to wait that long. When it did come, the battered fish was ridiculously greasy, the tart was nothing like what was advertised on the menu to the point that we thought they'd substituted something else, some of the vegetables were cold while others were very hard. The prices were also far too high for the quality of food.
A nice pub. Like most London pubs that claim to have a garden, they're pushing the definition a little. It's a large patio with some bushes planted around the place. I'm not usually a fan of Young's beer, but this pub served exceptionally good pints of Bombardier and Young's Bitter. The staff were friendly and cheerful, and the food was tasty and reasonably priced considering the location - we had the fish and chips for just over a tenner.
