Lansdowne 1

Squaremeal Review of Lansdowne ?

It’s now well into its third decade, but the “lovely” Lansdowne is still one of the coolest pubs in the area – you’ll often find Primrose Hill’s celebrity elite sipping summertime pints and fizz at its pavement tables. Even without the jet set, a ridiculously trendy bunch of drinkers fills the cosy, woody frayed-at-the-edges interior, but thankfully pretension is kept in check and there’s generally a friendly vibe. Dreamy bar staff pour glasses of crisp Viognier and G&Ts, while the kitchen works hard churning out “fabulous” homemade pizzas plus “reliable” Med-style dishes from an enticing chalked-up menu. Expect Spanish red pepper stew with a baked duck egg, roast cod and sautéed celeriac with clams, peas and gremolata or wild boar meatballs with tomato ragù and pappardelle followed by some sturdy English puds such as apple and rhubarb crumble with custard In short, a fun-loving, if rather noisy, treat.

Decent Gastropub – good pizzas

by   platinum reviewer (85)

Feb 2017

This gastropub has been one of our “locals” for over 20 years, and we have gone through periods where we have eaten here regularly and then not for a year or so due to ever changing chef and kitchen staff (I have no idea whether ownership has changed over this time). We decided to pop in a few weekends ago as I fancied a pizza and knew that they had an oven there and have been back again since. The pizzas are pretty decent, and the rest of the food coming out of the kitchen looks good too....

The Landsdowne always had a good reputation for serving fresh, well prepared food with seasonal ingredients but I am sadly to report these days are gone. I went there with a friend for Sunday lunch and we were both hugely disappointed with the food, customer service and general aspect of the place (they had two jars of bloodmary behind the stick ybar ready to be served after the many flies had helped themselves first). I ordered spinach fritters with spicy lentils and my friend ordered the lamb steak...

Once upon a time the Lansdowne was a reliable gastropub. No more. I've visited it twice in the last 3 months with several guests and each meal was a disaster. The food was terrible and took ages to reach the table. Each main dish had the texture of over cooked mush and shared the same “whatisit” over spiced flavour. Have the management and chef changed or just lost interest? I won't be back.
