Best British food this side of the pond 🇬🇧 And, I have to say, Fuller’s London Pride is better chilled ;) Definitely want to go back and work my way through this menu.

Delicious food in a nice casual setting on the back patio. The heaters worked well enough so we were not uncomfortable dining outdoors. Would recommend.

A friend recommended this place and she was right. The restaurant has 2 outdoor spaces set up, one on 76th Street and one in the back garden, both covered and heated, so perfect for the current situation. the servers were very nice in trying to accommodate our large party of 8. the food was excellent, especially the fish and chips and the crispy chicken. good size portions and quite fast service. overall we had a great time and will definitely go back and recommend to others.

Great location to enjoy high quality gastro-pub British food with a twist. We had a really nice New Years Day lunch in the tent out front given Covid-19. Liked it better than the Winter Garden in the back, but both are nice. Tent is more open, less people. Scotch eggs were delightful. Mulled wine was not too sweet with the right spice. Perfect for a cold day. Yorkshire pudding was very good. French onion soup perfect. Steak and eggs were enough for a VERY hungry person. We took half home. Fish and chips really good and burger was superb. Can’t say anything bad about it. Waiters and wait staff very attentive. Would highly recommend this place for a wee bit of joy in an otherwise tough pandemic winter. They staff was superb.

I wanted to try something new since my boyfriend and I always do Italian/Mediterranean. The food here was delicious. I got the Lamb Shepard’s Pie which was incredible. Service was great as well. Would come back

Has always been a strong staple of the UES. Good food and consistent service. They have an indoor patio which helps to keep everyone safe during the time of the COVID...

Lovely lunch. French onion soup is fabulous as was the grilled cheese sandwich with Stilton and Béchamel. It's worth it.

Wonderful place with terrific service. The only objection we had was that it was a bit too chilly in the back garden. It's heated from above but space heaters on the floor would improve it. Otherwise, it's one of our favorite places to eat.

Delicious food; outstanding service; lovely setting. The one thing that could be a bit better is the strength of the heaters in the garden. It was ok but could have been a bit warmer.

Been coming here for years. Always spot on! The outdoor space they have made is perfect and for a moment we were able to focus on a good time and forget about Covid! The food is spectacular from the French onion soup to the staple fish and chips!

First time dining indoors since March. The lengths that the staff went to for everyone’s safety and comfort was astonishing. Our table was cozy and away from anyone else. The dishes and drinks were perfection. Can’t wait to go back- although looks like outdoors again for a bit.

Expected to sit outside which I had written in my reservation but table not available so sat inside garden, somewhat open. Disappointed the salmon in parchment, which I wanted to order, had been replaced with another salmon which was very good. The hangar steak also looked plentiful and very tasty. Their food is consistently very well prepared and will continue to dine there.

We went for a Covid-19 Safe Lunch. They have a lovely indoor outdoor area at the center of the restaurant.

The food is awesome and they have a great beer selection. If you want to mix up the every day assortment of available options this place 100% allows you to eat something outside of the regularly available food. The Fish and chips were very good and most deffinately the highlight.

We went early enough to be mostly alone but by the 1pm lunch window a rather larger (office?) group of folks came by for lunch and then we felt rather uneasy in this outside/inside area. I think it comes with the territory of outdoor dining these days but just know that their secluded outside seating can sometimes feel a little cramped if enough people arrive.

Would come back (and would love to come back and eat inside) after this is all over.

Comfort food in a cozy and comfy setting on the UES. Really lovely interpretations of British classics such as fish and chips, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding (Saturday and Sunday nights only) and all kinds of meat pies that will warm your heart in these cooling temperatures. Top it of with yummy banoffee pie or sticky toffee pudding.

Service was good. Separation of tables was comfortable because dividers were in place. A bit pricey for drinks that were on the smaller side. And food was decent but nothing that was really outstanding.
