See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The inn sign depicts the coat of arms of the Earl of Harwood, the original freeholder. Built in 1866 as a beer house. Now the pub is at the very highest end of the gastropub spectrum, decorated in an attractive shade of battleship grey, with excellent food and a very superior wine selection. Consistently in the Estrella Damm national Top 50 Gastropubs awards, third-placed in 2021 and first-placed in 2020. Also listed in the ED National Restaurant Awards. At time of writing it is the only Michelin-starred pub in the capital. The pub specialises in British food with an emphasis on game, and encourages sustainability by trying to use as much wild food as possible plus fruit and veg from its rooftop garden.
Quiz night is on Tuesday. Because of its food reputation, unsurprisingly most or all of the seating in the evening is laid out for diners. And if you do want to eat here, particularly for Sunday lunch, you may have to be prepared to book weeks in advance.
