A certain kind of west London bohemian generally lands here, the moneyed professional rather than the cadging layabout.

The tone of this cosmopolitan drinkerie and eaterie is set by the entrance: a revolving door, which gives the place the feel of an international hotel lobby. It’s a bright, colourful place, buzzy on occasion, with punters getting stuck into a drinks list including Estrella, Stowford Press, Guinness, Freedom Pilsner, Bombardier and Erdinger, along with wines and cocktails.

The bar snacks are superior – triple-cooked chips, mini Cumberland sausages – but the real culinary action is in the restaurant upstairs, from which this ground-floor bar takes its needlessly confusing name.

Average pub vibe in London. There was little, if any atmosphere with half the chairs stacked up at 10pm on a weekday even with an hour and a half left serving. Without even checking my ID they claimed 'the bar was closed' so I believed them, until 8 new customers came in and got served straight away. Rather poor and extremely rude customer service and I would return with caution!
