I had the fish and chips and the fish was very slimy in a not good batter. We were also on a bad table shoved in the corner so was completely forgotten about
We ordered 4 starter plates between two of us which was ideal for a leisurely lunch. The broad bean hummus with radishes was particularly delicious. Two other dishes, Heritage tomatoes with goats curd and cod respectively were very good as was the last dish of asparagus . Everything was fresh and tasty.
Great food, beautiful location & very attentive staff, can’t recommend enough!
Great food and service as always.
Sunday lunch at its best.
My local pub. Always great food and good atmosphere.
On this visit our waitress was unfortunately having a bad day and incredibly grumpy. On dropping a drink she kicked the bottle hard across the bar breaking it. Stupid and dangerous.
Loved it wooo! Was fab: food was great specifically the milk buns
Excellent mimosas and ‘hangover cure’ broth for brunch. Friendly and attentive service. Sitting outside among the ivy is nice
The brunch here is incredible!! Really delicious food and great value for money. The staff were super friendly and really went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed.
Chicken schnitzel was amazing, highly recommend! Deffo try and get a seat in the garden if possible
Really lovely pub terrace, with food that is very significantly better than standard London gastropub - very much enjoyed.
Loved it, thank you. Lovely garden. Burger was good also.
Perfect way to spend a sunny bank holiday Monday. Get the burger 🤤 Service was fab. They made me a salad (off the menu) because I’m eating healthy.
Honestly outstanding food and service. Chicken schnitzel is the best I've had in a decade. 10/10
Host lady who greeted us was exceptional. So friendly and helpful. Other staff also great
We wanted to celebrate being able to dine in again. The booking was for outdoors but we needed to change to indoors due to adverse weather. The staff was very helpful. The food was delicious.
They may need to consider some improvements to absorb the noise though; some fabric items or curtains maybe. It was very loud due to acoustics of the room, noisier than a very crowded restaurant.
Genuinely the best brunch food I've ever eaten, Vegan options were on point too
BEST PUB IN EAST LONDON! The Nuno Mendes brunch on Friday & Saturday is honestly the best brunch in the whole of London, and I've tried a lot.
Every single plate was delicious. I had the asparagus and eggs and I'm still dreaming of it days later!
We went with our kids and dog and sat outside.
Lovely atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff.
Will be going back again very soon.
The new Nunes Gomes brunch menu was lovely and reasonably priced. The staff were delightful as always.
Great spot for outdoor lunch. Even with the rain. Food delicious. Service friendly and good.
Really really good, beautiful garden, nice food, would definitely recommend it
Unfortunately we were seated in the far corner, meaning we were easily ignored by the servers. Granted, it was a very busy night but we went without being served for 20-25 minutes when we first arrived, and every time we tried to order something else, the staff refused to catch our eye and come over. (some members of staff did make eye contact and then looked away pretending they didn't see us...) We were in a dark spot and were given a lantern which was much appreciated, only to be taken away 5 minutes later to give to a table that were also in the dark.. This didn't help us to be served any quicker. The food however, was really delicious and we will definitely come back; we just hope we can sit in a more visible spot next time!
Got the marrow burger and it didn't disappoint. Lovely place and great ambience
One of the two best pubs in the area
We loved our young lady waitress last night! From the girls on table 20 xx
Really lovely local spot with a great buzz and good food and wine.
Potentially the best pub in London. Food and alcohol selection is second to none. Staff always lovely. Perfect beer garden - well covered when we were there and it was raining
Brilliant! Enjoyed our evening, food and drinks were wonderful
The food was excellent - shame there was only one vegetarian option - which was very tasty. Pudding was delicious too - a tart with rhubarb but a bit on the small side !
Such a lovely outdoors area! We had a great time and were very impressed with the food, which came in impressively large portions.
Fantastic roast pork belly with a lovely atmosphere and great table and covid friendly service so glad to see these guys survived
Food and atmosphere was banging. Its a shame the service was so slow and almost 0% attentive, they took a very long time to take our order and for the food to come out (maybe an hour), we had to keep flagging down the staff to get anything ordered and one member of staff was so incredibly rude. She served us the bill without warning or saying they needed the table back. When we let her know we wanted another round of drinks as we had only just finished our food (due to very slow service) she responded with "that's a sad story" and simply walked off. Left a very bad taste in our mouth. I think she was maybe upset we had asked her to dry the wet bench before sitting on it when we arrived?
Great evening! Our waitress was the best - super helpful and so lovely💛
Best beer garden in London and the brunches by Nuno are epic!
The white asparagus is to die for!
Sampled 2 of the real ales, both were not perfect but both were acceptable.
Had 2 mains, both excellent.
Some problem with the booking meant we weren't on the list but they were very helpful and we got a table. The service was very good, friendly and helpful.
Love this pub and I really enjoyed Nuno Mendez food! But service could it be more friendly or just nicer to make you feel more comfortable.
Great Food and atmosphere! Fab pub in North London!
Great set up despite the cold weather. Service friendly and prompt.
Scolt Head's beer garden is one of the best gardens in East London, great to be back every time, however unfortunate to see empty tables that could have been used by walk-ins...
Lovely setting on a sunny day. Great roast dinner!!
