Worst service ever by a bartender named: Maxine. She was rude, obnoxious and out of line to me and a client I invited, who was visiting from out of town. We ordered 3 rounds of beers and at the third round she said to him...More

Always busy, always something happening, chatty, friendly, enigmatic, arty crowd. Beers, French wines and ciders. Great little snug tables upstairs and down, windows open in the summer, on Stewart drinking/smoking area. French flags flying. As an aside, I'm particular about my gin and tonic and...More

I used to drink here back in the zeroes and liked its quirkyness if not the odd pretension of only selling halves. I drank wine as a consequence. The interior hadn't changed much, the photos of Bacon, Dudley Moore etc getting leathered are nicely assuring....More

Great place,have been visiting for about ten years, great characters, wine and staff always friendly. Feels local even though we only get to London from Yorkshire 3 or 4 times a year. So much has changed in Soho, hope this place never does.
