Decent value roast, busy venue, friendly staff. Avoid dessert and be aware their prices on the website are not updated so expect to pay more than what’s quoted there.

The pub is very nice and the roast dinner we had was good, with lovely vegetables, but the beef was quite tough. The pub allows dogs, which is fine, but there was one dog that kept coming under our table because the owner did not keep it under control and I think the pub should have told the owner to put the dog on a lead. I would not go again.

Yes |I would because I like the Scolt Head, but first the toilets need attending to. One cubicle had no light, the other had a broken lock. The floor needs a proper cleaning; I could hear my shoes sticking to it.

Noise level - energetic?! We couldn't hear each other.
The louder the voices, the more people are enjoying themselves - without regard for others in the room. That's what people think, and it's hard to know what can be done about manners. But the acoustic in the dining area is unsympathetic. I won't book a Friday lunch again.

The long table next to ours was moved back against the wall and the chairs rearranged, after our lunch had started. Conversation was impossible. It was an unprofessional thing to do, should have been carried out well before service.

The food was amazing - pretty sure we could all have had lunch ten times over if we'd been given the chance. The waitresses and bar staff were extremely attentive and our drinks were refilled quickly (always good when it comes to Christmas party!)

We visited for an anniversary dinner and although the venue didn't know, they gave us a quiet little table with a candle and it was perfect! Food was amazing, the rib eye was perfectly cooked and the burger was delicious! Customer service was great: friendly and attentive but not pushy.

A modern pub with a good range of classic and newer dishes. Highly recommended for a Sunday lunch. Ample space and big screens to watch sports. Good range of beers and ciders on draught. Dining service is polite and friendly.

We booked our table for 6.30 on a Saturday, not realising there would be football on and the pub would be packed, although the dining area was empty. This of course impacted on the atmosphere somewhat as we were expecting more of a sedate neighbourhood gastropub where we could have a quietish meal. The dining room filled up after the football finished and people started eating. Food was perfectly fine pub grub – the chicken pie looked pleasingly homemade and was tasty and a smoked mackerel starter was a decent-sized portion and seemed very good quality. We had a nice evening, the staff were pleasant despite getting very busy later, and there was no pressure to vacate our table.

I live locally and don’t know why I have never been for a Sunday roast before! This pub is a neighbourhood gem. The decor is authentic but it’s a great place for some really tasty comfort food, impeccable service and great value for money. The terrine starter was probably the best I’ve ever had and the Sunday roast had a sublime melt in the mouth taste - I would have preferred my beef pinker but appreciate this doesn’t appeal to all but it still didn’t disappoint. The sticky toffee was a little burnt and would have tested better with custard - but you can’t have everything. Oh and the wine menu is really good value for London!

We've been eating at this pub probably every 2 months for 3 or 4 years. The food is always very good, apart from a veggie burger which (not surprisingly) was less than perfect. The beers are excellent, prices reasonable and the staff always make us welcome. Perfection in a local pub.

The burger and fench fries that i had were excellent as was the veggie burger that my wife had. Vegetarian curry was described by our companion as very tasty. Chilli con carne was lovely. Good selection of cheese and tasy sticky toffèe pudding to finish. All reasonably priced. Service was friendly and efficient.Very goodvalue for money. Would definately recommend
