London's only Michelin starred pub serving a good selection of snacks, wholesome food and interesting drinks from around the world
Slightly pushed the boat out on this occasion as it was a decent way to do something good on New Year’s Eve during the day and then get out of London Central before being over-loaded with tourists and general New Year congestion. All the dishes were fantastic – the meats were sublimely tender, the salads were gently glazed with powerful dressings and were therefore saved from being boring and the vegetables were perfect, most notably the roast potatoes. They even had a bottle of Château d’Yquem for an amazing £120 so clearly that was done to go with dessert and was a lovely thing to have to finish. Another thumbs up meal here making one very happy when leaving.

Had the snack menu by the fire place on this occasion with a very nice Japanese beer from the tap as I was passing by. The venison scotch egg was frankly a no brainer to go for and thankfully it did not disappoint. I prefer the taste of a scotch egg made with pork meat but this was done beautifully and the accompanying dishes of quail and ice cream snow were very good and good value as well.

First and foremost the food here has always been wonderful. The menu holds classic dishes done superbly well. It remains the only pub in London with a Michelin star and this is a lovely option for genuinely good food in a comfortable environment and a great option for something different i.e. having a pint with your meal for a change over conventional restaurants. The interior is stylish and even if one wanted to have a brief sit down without a table for something quick, there is a very good snack menu which, with the bespoke choice of quality beers and drinks selection makes it another very good option by their fire place. No real negatives other than the back-door address but the owners are very proud of their establishment – and rightly so.
