Steeped in musical history, this multi-faceted venue has played host to some of the world’s greatest artists, from Sammy Davis Jnr and Jimi Hendrix to Led Zeppelin jam sessions. The ground-floor café is a charming space with stained glass and wood panelling. Brunch is served all day and a lunch menu features a range of pastas, burgers and seafood. Enjoy a hearty supper and a pint of Rothaus German beer before descending to the basement for an event from a varied programme of music, DJs and poetry nights.

So this restaurant/music venue/ nightclub is quite a rare thing in this part of London. But each part is very different.

So the restaurant is good and the service is respectable. It is nothing special but it is nice. 

It is a music venue for up and coming talent and offers alternative music and is very intimate. 

As a nightclub this place is awful. Just do not go.

The menu is somewhat eclectic, but the food was excellent. Good 2-for-1 offers on cocktails too. Went to a gig in the basement after the meal, which is a really nice venue with great acoustics. Overall, highly recommended.


I live around the corner so I'm a regular here. Amex have had some good offers on money off in the past here - I wish we'ld get more! Firstly I've been here many times for Sunday breakfast - absolutely lovely. I recommend the omelettes and the fisherman's breakfast. Obviously a tad expensive but considering the area and the service, it's worth it. There is a lovely outside garden too. For dinner, I ordered the fish and chips - good quality pub food I would say! It's always crowded so service can be a bit slow at times. This is also one of the few pubs I'm comfortable ordering wine. Wine is pretty good and I believe it's probably cos of the associate wine shop next door. I've also been for a gig here (in the basement). I would say this was my only bad experience - really tiny space and way too many drunks. I was surprised to later find out that some of the drunks were part of the band performing (some Texan family band!) Considering many indie bands were discovered here, I may give it another chance.

Overpriced poor quality food upstairs served with salad that had gone black. Downstairs we tried to watch an acoustic set but the ignorant customers eating and drinking simply shout at each other to be heard above the music and the so it is impossible to hear the music at all. This is the worst venue I have ever visited for music and would never go there again. The poor manners of the people and the fact the staff simply do not care to tell people to respect the artists.
