Claiming to be London's first Serbian pub and restaurant (and we can't find any evidence to dispute this too heartily) - it is staking a claim to be a gathering place for Serbs in London. Describing itself as a "fusion of home-made Serbian food and a traditional British pub atmosphere", we were a bit disappointed at the fairly average drinks on offer, with Guinness and John Smith's and a various lagers on the taps. There is Serbian brandy to sample, but we thought there'd be more. We'd struggle to describe it as ' traditional British' beyond the booze selection; live music at the weekends would appear to be of the Serbian variety and the menu is not your usual pub grub. We will have to try the food next time, but we didn't have time on our first visit. Definitely worth a look if you're after something different in the area.

Whoever gave this Serbian pub five stars must have been friends with the owner. There was absolutely nothing "nice and friendly" about it, in fact it was a wholly unpleasant experience for us - crap exterior and interior, a grumpy waitress (presumably the owner's wife), a grubby-looking, very basic and ridiculously overpriced menu, a singer/guitarist who sang in Spanish ("Guantanamera") and a roaming dog that seemingly suffered from rabies. When we decided to leave after five minutes, the door was blocked by a scary-looking tramp (presumably the owner) who demanded £1 from my friend for using the restroom which didn't even have lighting or electricity. When we visited on Sunday afternoon, there was only one other customer there, which really says it all. This place is a complete and utter joke, avoid at all costs.
