Had a lovely Sunday lunch here. Booked a table in advance as we didn't know how busy it would be and even though we were given a lovely romantic spot we were able to change no problem because of personal preference. The food was amazing....More

Came here to the upstairs room early this week for a work Xmas party buffet thing. I didn’t eat as I saw one of the chefs use the cubicle in the customer toilets and not wash his hands on exit. Disgusting and dangerous. Management need...More

Used to live on Bunhill Row. Love this pub. Staff are friendly they serve good food. They are amazingly quick at serving despite how busy it gets. Happy to recommend. I always go back when I’m in the area.

Sat on Bunhill Road opposite London's famous Bunhill Cemetery. It's not a huge place but it's dark oak, bare brick walls and high ceilings can't help but take you back in time. Perhaps Jack the Ripper or Sweeny Todd once sat where I do now....More

Hidden away across from the historic Bunhill Cemetary, this is a great place for a quiet drink in company. There are more rowdy places nearby. In warm weather, you can stand outside as there is space to place drinks on the windowsill. It's very clean...More

We had a lovely Sunday lunch again. Chefs and staff where obliging with diet needs, within their capability. Food as always, home cooked with fresh veg. Plenty on the plate. Love the roast parsnips. Good value for money. Be hungry.
