3 out of 5 stars

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Whatever the price and quality of the gastropub fare (pork belly and mash for a tenner, roasted root risotto at £7.50), this is a proper Portobello local. The majority of the jolly, bohemian-minded punters hanging around the pleasingly sparse, open-plan interior – probably at the bar – seem cheerfully merry whatever the time of day, which istestament of sorts to the agreeable atmosphere cultivated by the matey staff.

There’s music three or four nights a week; the rest of the time, it’s a free for all, with unshaven musos hammering back Black Sheep, Staropramen, Kirin or Leffe. A couch in one corner affords comfort to couples.
