    my kind of place! 90s-ish theme but more like, around since the 90s as opposed to a (the?) portlandia sketch. bar IS open on sundays, but the kitchen is closed. good patio! good music!

    One of the best burgers i've had in London for sure, plus the place is beautifully quirky.

    Safe to say this is my 5th favourite pub in London. It's made it so high due to Mrs Wong and Suarez chilling on the wall.

    Cheap drinks, huge burger selection although I have had much better and they are quite expensive (£11+). Quirky pub with lots of tacky decoration but cute nonetheless.

    A quirky watering hole that's easy on the budget. Plentiful bric-a-brac, student discounts and a happy little patio – you’ll feel as though you’ve stumbled into genuine kitsch heaven. Read more

    This was one of my favourite pubs in London! The decor is random & quirky and the burgers are delicious! Apparently they do Lemon Meringue shots on Fridays, wish we could have come back to try them!
