This backstreet Stokey local, buried in the complicated network of residential streets behind Church Street, has been spruced up lately after some time in the doldrums.

It’s a big place, even bigger than it looks from its streetcorner location, and a difficult one to fill. The deepish back room can feel a bit tumbleweedy when it’s not busy, which is often the case early in the week, and the bare-brick decor doesn’t encourage intimacy. As a result, you’re better off staying at the front, close to the big picture windows and the imposing bar.

Still, that shouldn’t disguise its virtues: a couple of ales, worthwhile cocktails, sturdy gastropub grub and staff who are keen to make you feel at home. Worth a second look.

A trio of roasts! Superb idea - you no longer have to choose and it becomes a social sharing feast AND it's well cooked which is quite rare to find with so many elements of a roast to get just right on mass on a busy Sunday. The atmosphere and decor are spot on for London pub dining and if you're lucky you'll find jazz or disco to tap your feet to. Will be back.

Amazing Sunday roast. I am a big Sunday roast fan and always on the hunt for a good place for a Sunday lunch, this pub is one of my favourite places. The portions a huge so don't eat too much before, all the food is lovely they have even managed to get lovely crispy potatoes. Worth pre-booking a table as the place is very popular.

I always love a good roast so I will never get tired of trying different places around London and ranking their Sunday roasts. But it’s good to think in advance, especially when picking quality places, so I booked a table quite few days before, which proven to be a good decision, because the pub was packed.

Portions were huge and everything was done to perfection. If you consider yourself being a bit of a Sunday Roast pro, definitely give this place a go!

One of the best roasts in Stokey, and usually not that tricky to get a seat given how good the food is. Staff can sometimes appear to be in a bit of flap meaning whilst there can be a lot of activity behind the bar, it doesn't always amout to fast service. Catch them on a good day though and it's easily one of the best pubs in the area, and really benefits from being away Church St


Don't forget the little beer garden out back, excellent wine menu and (in my humble opinion) the best sunday roast in Stokey


Love this pub. Great food, lovely staff and great vibe. we often go midweek for a candlelit dinner although we have been to our friend's wedding reception which was incredibly well organised and probably the best food at any event I have been to. Make sure you book for a roast on Sunday as seats are like gold dust and desevedly so.


Well worth making a trip away from the crowded pubs of Church Street - good beer, nice atmosphere and excellent service.


Excellent local a real fav with me - the roast is exemplary and the wine list is really broad - although as previous reviewers have stated it is a bit on the expensive side - my friend and i managed to spend £50 a head on sunday lunch of three courses and a bottle of wine which is a bit steep for just a local meal out.


Had a very good roast there last Sunday - friends eating the pork belly raved about getting a 12" slab of meat, and the roast potatoes were crispy, fluffy and as good as my mum's. Their Eton Mess is as good as mine! Aspalls at £3.60/pint meant we were in there 10 hours. Not the cheapest roast in town, but great food and a nice comfortable room meant it did us proud.
