PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS FOR OUTSIDE!

Situated in Chiswick, west London. The Roebuck is a pub with a truly diverse offering. The open kitchen overlooks the 60-seater dining room. A great pub area and a garden that could be set in Tuscany- unbelievable but true! Whether you visit us for lunch, dinner or a drink in the bar, you will find a wide selection of craft beers, real ales, cocktails and wines. Our food is a mix of fresh, seasonal pub classics and restaurant style dishes, with a changing menu which takes advantage of what is good in the market.
Our team is vibrant, passionate, knowledgeable and above all friendly.

Food great as always. Service at this restaurant is consistently poor. We had 2 training servers, making for a frustrating experience overall. Wrong plates delivered to the table, having to call over for service, frustrating when prices are a bit higher then most pubs in the area.

Had the burger and chips which were over cooked so hard on the outside and couldn’t eat it all.
Nice staff and ambience though. Friend has fish and chips which seemed a good choice.

Nice pub. Unfortunately we were sat next to a family, whose kids were bored. One child through food at my friend, the other child kept screaming and crying. Food was OK. Chips were delicious. Service felt very rushed at the beginning, but the restaurant was very busy at 8pm.

Not eaten here for a while but managed to get a table on Valentines night. I had pan fried cod. Skin could have been crisper and portion was small but fish itself was perfectly cooked. My guest had burger, which I had a taste of and it was disappointing. Burger used to be good here but this wasn't. They were packed though so id try again.

I made a booking for two through opentable, got confirmation email, turned up, they showed me my reservation on their computer and then proceeded to tell me the whole place was booked and can’t serve us.
And that was it - no call to warn me, complete and utter disregard of what I should do with my evening.
Appalling management of the situation by the manager.
That’s one place I won’t try going to again.

Disappointed with menu, very little choice, very old fashioned and little flavour. My risotto was soggy, the Parmesan I asked for was not Parmesan but more like a cheddar, and I found the range of food very poor. It used to be a lot more exciting, bring back the previous chef!

Food was consistently good as was the service. Food arrived hot and quickly despite it being busy. My only reservation about the Roebuck is the variety in the menu. It plays very safe, and I would like to see a little more variety.

We had a lovely time however based a previous experience, this occasion was not the best. Waitress was not as attentive and caring as usual and he food felt like it had been prepared much early in the day. Otherwise enjoyable loud energic pub.

Service was slow although not very busy . Toilets broken and were stinking out the restraunt so that was a bit unpleasant. One of the meals came and potatoes were cold , so plate was sent back ,, only to be returned after being blitzed in the oven or microwave as plate was untouchable . They did refund the dish from the bill . Portion size for starters was very small ( pepper squid ) . Took a long time to settle the bill.

Venue is visually appealing and location is excellent, however, this venue is overpriced for the mediocre food it serves and it has an awful stench presumably caused by bad drains.

Typical gastropub with good service though super busy on Sunday lunchtime as expected. Easy to find and found myself wanting to stay on until the evening as good vibe with mix of locals and ad hoc diners such as me and my friend.

This was my second evening visit to the Roebuck. On each occasion I have had a really lovely supper served by charming staff. Worthy of particular mention are the great selection of gins, the home-made bread and the Black Bomber Cheddar from Snowdonia. I will go again when I am next staying in Chiswick.

Great food and ambience - good table given as per request for space with buggy..
time frame for dining wasn’t as long as we’d hoped though as told another booking was arriving so we had to vacate - always makes the end a bit awkward really but other than that - would go back for the food!

Always friendly atmosphere. Lots of space so never feels cramped and noise is not an issue.
Food is a little bland but ok. Risotto always served with non parmesan cheese (more like a cheddar) which is not acceptable and needs to be changed.
Good service and ideal for last minute booking.

I've been a regular customer of the Roebuck ever since it opened and keep going back - it's been a really reliable venue in Chiswick for a decade and always a great mix of good value, good food and good service. This week I went and the service was noticeably a little less friendly/helpful and slightly more pushy. On the food, my main course was great (my friend's risotto much less good). Plus they do really need to update their desserts which have been the same for years, and are frankly disappointing/rather tasteless.
