Despite a substantial and sympathetic refit in the spring of 2010 by the fast-growing Realpubs group, this remains at heart a tiled-exterior local boozer, where the impressive culinary offerings need not dissuade the drinker from strolling in for a quiet pint.
In expansive, high-ceilinged, wood-panelled surroundings, pull up a bar stool and sup on lagers such as Sagres, Bitburger and Moretti, or ales including Brains Milkwood and Deuchars IPA, with Vedett, Duvel, Budvar and Chimay (of both colours) brightening the fridge behind. Wines include a dozen choices by the glass, rising to feature the likes of a Tremblay chablis at around £25 to £30 a bottle.
The superior food menu might include pan-fried Cornish sardines, Lancashire hotpot and poached haddock, with occasional forays into continental variety (seafood, chicken and smoked sausage paella). Music and monthly comedy nights should bring customers from further afield than NW6.

This is just down the road from where I live. It's always been pretty good but I hadn't been
for a while and decided to go for dinner. Under new management, the food is superb and the service is also top notch. There are lots of alternatives in and around Queens Park but this beats them all hand down. Sunday half a roast chicken a favourite! Plus fresh oysters and voodoo wings addictive! The bar hosts regular evenings. We stayed after dinner listening to a brilliant live band. This place is fast becoming the place to go for food and drinks!
