Salt House, St. John's Wood
Poor old Salt House was probably once a decent enough pub, but years of being mucked about with have left it unsure of its place in the world. It seems that owner Greene King have made a number of basic errors with forays into this kind of aspirational venture and this one is no exception. Drinkers are given the small front bar, which is rather drab and lifeless, offering up a two mediocre Greene King ales. Saying that, our Bank Holiday Monday visit found this front bar busy with people eating and babies galore. Of course we didn't mind having to awkwardly manoeuvre around 4x4-sized behemoth prams parked in the narrow gangways, while being wilfully ignored by selfish parents who carried on obliviously colouring in pictures with their toddlers. Elsewhere the large dining room offers the residents of NW8 standard gastro fare, but we instead sat outside in the sun, before swiftly moving on. In summary - dull and vaguely annoying.

How to find the Salt House pub
From St John's Wood tube, cross over the road and walk down Grove End Road, then take the third right onto Abbey Road. Cross over that famous zebra crossing if you must and The Salt House is a few minutes down on the left.
