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, though the punters who head here surely aren’t drawn by the unmemorable range of drinks (Red Stripe, Kirin and Warsteiner on tap, 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!
