The place looks fantastic from outside. Inside there is a large bar and good decor. Sadly only one dark ale on the pump. Prices £5 ish per pint/ bottle. The table we sat at was sticky with spilt beer. The menu was limited no wow...More

Came in on a snowy Saturday night and was surprised how good the food was- I had the calamari and the fish n chips. Hubby enjoyed the shepherds pie.

I found this place whilst wandering the neighbourhood and so my friend and I tucked in for dinner and a drink. We found the atmosphere cozy and charming, the pub itself is sort of tucked away off the main drag so it wasn’t packed full...More

A cosy traditional English pub that offers breakfast lunch and dinner. Fish n chips are delicious! Easily accessible from Earl's Court underground station.

The ideal pub if you're attending a football match at Chelsea FC, it is just set back off the main Earls Court road and about 20 minutes walk to the stadium. Great selection of craft beers and good food - the fish and chips is...More

Thank you for your feedback Patrick. We are a long way from California, but Sierra Nevada is a beer worthy of the journey. We do showcase a number of craft beers from London and the UK as well so we can have all boxes ticked!...More

A very comfortable pub with an open fireplace, a nice bar and a typical pub menu that is well-executed. Easily the nicest pub in the Earl's Court area, and thankfully hidden away in a side street, so as to render it quite peaceful.

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and

mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Their menu is posted on their web page. I'd supply the link - but Tripadvisor does not allow.
