Historically the Atlas has been a solid favorite for a pint and Sunday lunch before watching Chelsea . Last visit was slightly disappointing , food quality dropping a little , prices rising a little . Still a warm , welcoming and fun venue for lunch but hoping for better next time or may look elsewhere.

We had a great meal here Friday evening! Great service, didn't have to ask for water for the table or condiments it was already bought to the table. Everything was served quickly and the food was wonderful. Lovely atmosphere with the fires lit.

Made a reservation a wrrk on advance and was allocated the worst table in the pub. Right by the door. Then was told they cannot serve us because we have a 9mths old with us.

In my experience it is quite a feat for a Sunday lunch in a pub or restaurant to be this good across all elements at this price. We had the beef and the pork; the meat quality and cooking of both were exceptional. The roast potatoes perfectly crisp and fluffy and without that pre-heated taste you sometimes get. Yorkshires were triumph of height & texture and delicious veg to accompany. Perfect ambience, proper pub feel, friendly, relaxed and was full groups of all ages.

Excellent food. A real gem!
The service was also excellent. I ate at Cliveden the same weekend but the Atlas had better service. The server even offered to do separate bills for everyone in our group of 5.

Good food and value considering it is such a central location. Staff were attentive and pleasant. Became very busy after the Chelsea game but when I called the pub beforehand they did warn me so we arrived 30 minutes earlier than originally planned. V Good would go again and recommend.

Great food as always but I didn't feel the service was as warm and welcoming as it usually is. A group of about 8-9 of us come every few months and the great service plus fab food is what keeps us coming.

Our dinner was great until the waitress knocked our wine bottle over and splashed red wine over everyone. However it was an accident, was quickly cleared up and desserts were not charged. We were less upset than the waitress. Food was tasty and good value. The starter sharing plate was excellent.

Good service, friendly staff, well prepared food. Portions were reasonable. BUT it is not great value - a main course, shared pudding and a drink each, for 2 people came to £60. A good option for pre-theatre meal if going to the Finborough Theatre. Not sure I would go there again, though the experience itself was enjoyable.

Even though The Atlas was very busy due to it being match day at Chelsea FC, the service and food were excellent. The staff even called me to let me know that it would be busy on the day I was there. I would highly recommend.

The Atlas used to be a fav of ours some ten+ years ago. Their med inspired kitchen was always leaning to the Spanish side of the med and the food was very good. This was my first time back in 7 years and while the pub is still the same -good beer, good vibe and friendly service - the food lacked. I was very surprised that the flavour of the moment is Italian. This is fine, but apart from the very good charcuterie platter, the food was disappointing. Starting with the bread that came with the platter, it had been toasted well in advance and was not crispy anymore. The pumpkin risotto was downright strange (with cinnamon which was advertised), too grainy and you could not tell whether it needed sugar or salt. The tagliatelle were nothing special either. The few mushroom bits were uninspiring and the cream sauce too heavy.
The strong chlorine smell from the kitchen at 11pm didn't help either.
