This smart gastropub with rooms is a perfect match for this exclusive corner of Pimlico, and attracts a well-heeled crowd. If the ground-floor bar and dining room is packed out, make your way to the quieter first floor. The decor has a deliberately weathered look (think distressed walls, ‘aged’ wooden tables and flooring, vintage French travel posters) – the effect is appealing if a little forced.

British ingredients have pride of place on the menu, so you’ll find Bath Pig chorizo, Anglesey farmed sea bass and Cornish new potatoes. Yellow, red and pink heritage beetroots with salsify and a dollop of goat’s curd resembled a summer garden on a plate. Wood-fired pizza with creative toppings are a speciality; Laverstoke buffalo mozzarella was used to good effect alongside confit yellowfin tuna, prawns, capers and tomato. Translucent (line-caught) cod atop chewy puy lentils and creamy mash was stirred into life by a velvety Madeira jus. Desserts (the likes of coffee panna cotta and sticky toffee pud) all cost £7. To drink, there are cocktails, fresh fruit juices, more than a dozen wines by the glass, and Adnams and Meantime beers on tap. Service is breezy.

The Orange is part of the Cubitt House Group of upmarket gastropubs in swanky parts of town: not far away, in Belgravia, are the Pantechnicon and the Thomas Cubitt, and there’s also the Grazing Goat (also a hotel) in Marylebone.

Had dinner here last night, steak tartare was AMAZING as was the chicken pie! Dark chocolate cheesecake was the best cheesecake I think I have ever eaten, service was friendly, efficient and very professional, I think this is my new favourite pub in London.

This is my favourite gastro pub in London!!! I dined there again last night and as normal I was greeted by staff members who really look like they enjoy what they do, big smiles and friendly, non intrusive service. The food is awesome!!! I had the lamb loin (cooked to perfection) followed by cheeky dark chocolate cheesecake for dessert. If you have not had a chance to check it out I definitely would.

I love this pub! It's my local and the staff are always really friendly. Food is really good and they even have bedrooms! Can get quite busy sometimes.

Inhospitable and shockingly poor manager service...Food lacklustre.
