The Michelin Guide 2015 ‘Bib Gourmand Award’ “A handsome Edwardian Pub a baseline lob away from the All England Tennis Club the Cooking is fervently seasonal; flavours are assured and ingredients marry well” “Traditional” “Good food at moderate prices”
The Good Pub Guide 2015 ‘Main Entry’ South London, “Sizeable Edwardian pub with lively bustling atmosphere and plenty of cheerful customers” “Standard Lamps, Modern Art on the walls and an open fire” “Stools line the U-Shaped counter where efficient and friendly staff serve 6 ales on hand pump”
AA Pub Guide 2014 ‘Pick of the Pubs’, “Modern Community & gastropub” ”Seasonal Menus with everything made on the premises including the bread”
Square Meal 2014 “vibrant menu that changes every day & is full of seasonal interest in summer & in winter. There’s a thought-out wine list for accompaniment, but also plenty of interest for ale drinkers”
Time Out Guy Diamond said, “This grand Edwardian drinking palace has had the full gastropub makeover with daily-changing menu and just-baked bread on the bar counter, but is still a proper pub with a log fire and 6 cask-conditioned ales”.
Evening Standard Charles Campion, “This is how gastropub food should be – well-balanced, freshly cooked seasonal dishes at accessible prices”.
