A great place for a casual dinner with friends.
The menu is solid, top end gastropub fare which on the whole lives up to expectations. I had mussels which can be disappointing, but there wasn't a flabby anaemic one in sight which pleased me for 2 reasons: 1) they tasted great obviously! and 2) our lovely waiter who was so enthusiastic about a number of the dishes on the menu was right and could be trusted for advice on dessert. The pear tarte I had was not quite as good as my friend's chocolate brownie, but maybe that's because, being a girl, no fruit based pud will ever compete with a cocoa based one.
The service here was great from beginning to end: prompt telephone response (sadly unusual for many pubs!); a slight shifting of our table to give us more room; friendly and attentive, but not intrusive, throughout the meal.
Not sure it's one for an intimate dinner a deux as they have some big groups in and the bar is rammed, but it's a great place for a catch up with a friend. It should clean up at this end of the Kings Road where the competition can be a little overpriced, pretentious and self-conscious.
