The Remarkable Restaurants group run pubs that usually get a good reception here at Fancyapint, so we're happy to report their newest effort tops them all, in looks at least. After being closed for a while, in 2006 they were lucky to have taken over a building with a centuries-old history, but they nonetheless made the most of the opportunity - and who could blame them. We particularly liked the wintry nooks and crannies panelled in dark wood, which features a fantastic 17th century fireplace, rediscovered after being boarded up for years. None of it, however, feels twee or overbearing and for contrast there's also a bright and airy back room, its high ceilings tempered with a couple of art nouveau statues and a huge mural. Indeed, every aspect of the décor is well thought out and designed. Elsewhere things aren't quite up to the five pint standard they once were. Our pint of HSB was distinctly off and while it was replaced without fuss (for an averagely kept Pride), a good publican would know the condition of his wares before opening. Meanwhile the food standards have dropped too. Our burger and chips, while perfectly edible, was pretty dry. While certainly a lovely pub - especially for Acton - it's sadly not as amazing as it once was.

This is a charming pub, and worthy of its 5 star rating, though suprised that FAP rate it so highly given their disdain of gastros. This is a gastro, serving a good, varied, seasonal menu, but they mainly accomodate for this out the back, retaining the front section, complete with fireplace, oak beams and snugs for a proper darkened pub experience. Staff are great and friendly, the quiz night is quite an experience, as the south london quiz master falls in, usually an hour late, to a round of applause, to provide a well thought out weekly Monday quiz.
