The good pub guide review
In summer, the front of this historic pub is covered with a dazzling array of hanging baskets and flowering tubs. Outside peak times, there's a peaceful, local feel to the spot, hidden away in a cobbled mews. Once past the floral façade, the small bar is pleasant, with sash windows, a wooden floor, stools by the counter, an open winter fire and Fullers ESB, London Pride and Olivers Island plus a couple of guest beers on handpump, 14 wines by the glass and a few malt whiskies; board games. An arch leads to the main seating area with well polished tables and chairs and good lighting; there's also an upstairs dining room. It's said that this is where the Great Train Robbery was planned.
The good pub guide food review
Well liked food from the Fullers kitchen includes sandwiches, snacks such as pies, hummus with flatbread and buffalo chicken wings, main dishes including sausages and mash, chicken schnitzel with kohlrabi and pine nut and kale slaw, and squash, spinach and feta cheese wellington, and puddings such as marmalade and whisky bread and butter pudding with buffalo milk vanilla ice-cream.
