Just moved to Balham and came in for my welcome to the neighbourhood free drink. Fair to say this is my new favourite local. Lovely food, buzzing atmosphere, great playlist and table service! Will be back next weekend for a roast.

Incredible Sunday roast, can highly recommend the beef. Tasty and fresh with all the trimmings - the gravy was to die for! Perfect hangover cure. 2 courses for £20 was a pleasing deal! No need to eat again that day!
