Went there last night as a follow up boasting session to mates after a lunch I had a few weeks ago, but unfortunately it seems I may have been looking through rose-tinted glasses/beer goggles. While the pub has great lighting and the tables are well spaced, there is a distinct lack of ‘pub’ feel to it, it is basically a restaurant with a bar (which they were quick to get us off) as opposed to a gastropub.
The menu has some great starters, indeed the pork pie that I remembered was still there and as good as last time, but the main course selection really let it down and therefore I was pushed towards the grill. The stand out thing about the ‘grill’ section is unfortunately the prices, sirloin £27.50, rib-eye £29.50, fillet £31.50 which put it more expensive than any Gaucho Grill. Surely at these prices then I was going to get an improvement – this is a Wimbledon pub after all, not a City restaurant. Alas, my sirloin was basically half fat, as was another of our table, the skate was overcooked and the fillet was described by the wife as ‘pretty tasteless’.
Overall our meal for 6 came in at over £430 and we all left disappointed. Value for money is definitely not good, but the ‘prime’ reason I won't be returning is the quality of the meat.
