How odd that the only previous reviewer has chosen a picture which is such a close female version of the picture I use on Squaremeal !
I have frequented this place on and off for over 12 years, and very much prefer it since it was taken over by present management which I believe is associated with the hotel in Charterhouse Square. The term gastropub is a portmanteau word covering a mulititude of differing ambitions and achievements. However,if the F+A is an average pub so far as drink is concerned, it is far from average so far as the food is concerned.
I have to ration my visits here a bit, as I struggle to keep my weight down and it would be easy to balloon in weight here. I can thouroughly recommend the burger here – definitely a couple of cuts above the average ! The quality is great, as is the juiciness. The chips, however, are almost always totally impossible to leave unfinished. Combine that with every condiment you could wish for, and this is truly a burger worth making a detour for. I have also eaten the steak tartare here, enjoyed it very much and, so far, seem to show no signs of incubating Kreutzfeld-Jacobs… (sic, possibly). There are fresh oysters for those who like to eat that sort of thing (not me, unfortunately). The pies are the trademark of the F+A but there's nothing I can say to add to what Anoo has posted. This is a good place for food, and an interesting place visually, and I am happy to commend it accordingly.
