The Hero is located in Maida Vale and is a pub and restaurant that serves up the most delicious British food with a nostalgic twist. If you enjoy drinking pints of cask ales in a relaxed atmosphere, you'll love the ground floor Pub. Up on the first floor, The Grill Room specialises in meats and fish that are cooked on an open fire. Here, you'll be surrounded by high ceilings and get to see the open kitchen that has the ambience of a forgotten ballroom. Then, on the very top floor lies a private event space that is designed for gatherings with its own bar and catering for sit down meals.

In the pub, you'll have choices of plenty of snacks, including pork scratchings, cheese toasties, lamb ribs with mint sauce, whole quail and scotch eggs. If you like seafood, try the oysters, and be sure to order the brown crab and cucumber soup. For your main, why not try the cheese and onion pie, ham with egg and chips, or sausage and mash classics.
