This lovely Victorian pub in the slight desert between Earl's Court and South Kensington just seems to be getting better and better. We don't get here often enough, and wish it was more local when we do manage it. It would appear to have something for everyone here - decent wine list, four ales on the hand pumps as well as a reasonable selection of continental beers (on the pumps and in bottles) and other tipples to suit most palates. There's inexpensive and well-prepared food on offer, too. The comfy sofas around the open fire plus mismatched light fittings may appear to be a tip of the ol' hat to trendiness, but it's still comfortable and smug in its pub-ness. With friendly staff and jolly-enough locals and visitors from nearby hotels fleshing out the clientele, you could do far worse than pop in for a few pints and a bite to eat.
