Gorgeous garden. It's always packed in summer. One of my favourite places in London. Good range of drinks, especially draught. Food is decent too. Will definitely recommend.

Took my family here last week. Found this place by mistake after a walk on the Heath, great location. Lovely and spacious pub and the food was surprisingly excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Will be returning!
