The pub is quite standard in terms of interior design so don't expect some modern art or hung deer heads inside. It's all wooden and quite comfy I might say. Despite the smallish, crammed tables you're in for an excellent experience and a set of delicious meals. I went in with two friends and we all started off with the soup of the day which came with some crunchy bread. All was good there and we moved to the main. I had the pork belly and oh my, that taste... it was so so so delicious and soft, and melting. I regret nothing, despite the judging looks on my companions' faces when I ate the whole thing.
Some remarks about the Antelope can be mentioned too - it was way too noisy but I guess we did a number on ourselves, going to a pub. Apart from that, it's a lovely place with lots of good food.
I came here with work colleagues after our Christmas night out. We reserved the little snook area, which was nice and intimate, and we had a nice evening.
I'm not sure i would necessarily seek this place out, but it did have a nice, buzzing atmosphere and clean bathrooms (always important!), and I would definitely consider it as an option if I was in the area. It's not life changing, but it's a good, British pub.
The whole time I was there I didn't pay for a drink or go to the bar so I honestly couldn't comment on prices or service, nor could I honestly comment on the type of people it hosts, as I was tucked away in our little corner, but I had a good evening & I wouldn't be out off returning.
Dopey barman didn't serve me before a new person that came to the bar (there were only 3 of us trying to get served, not that hard) & took my drink away from the table when it wasn't finished. The roast saved them though - it was pretty good...
I'm not a huge fan of Fuller's pubs. I like their range of drinks (although they would benefit from having a guest beer to offer a little variety) but I find that most of their pubs are devoid of charm of any kind. I'm not sure quite how they manage it. This pub is another example of this.
This is an old pub too so it should have more charm to it. It dates back a couple of hundred years in its current incarnation, although there was a pub on this site even before then, back when this was swampland and very dangerous swampland at that!
My friend and I stumbled upon this little pub tucked away a couple of streets away from Sloane Square earlier today when we were escaping the Jubilee madness for a while.
The service and ambience was nice and friendly and not at all as Sloane Ranger and Hooray Henry as I would've expected for the area. We both had a pint of cider but it was a tad expensive totalling over 8 shiny pounds for the two.
The decor was cricket themed so if you're a fan, you'll like it and the pub seems to play another local / rival pub.
If I was in the area, I would return / recommend but I wouldn't come back especially but it made for a nice find today so did the job.
A cozy, traditional pub with dark wood and a wraparound bar in the middle of the space. Towards the back they have a great little alcove complete with fireplace and rustic leather couches to make yourself at home on. This pub is perfect for a wintery respite.. all you would be missing is the snow outside!
I wouldn't seek this pub out, but it is a brilliantly place for a cheeky pint if you are in the area. A little piece of rustic country amid the urban jungle.
I've been visiting The Antelope, on and off, since first moving to London 15 years ago, and in all that time it hasn't really changed. It's pretty traditional, with a lot of dark wood, a charming fireplace which roars its way through snowy winters such as the one we've just had, and a spacious upstairs room, which is great for groups. But, I have to say that the service is so slow it could act as a sleep aid, and on my two most recent visits, I've found it impossible to make eye contact with the bar staff, so adept they are at ignoring the next customer.
For smokers, you can smoke on the footpath at the front of the pub, but forget about taking your drink with you because that, my dear people, ist VERBOTEN.
The food's okay, if you're hungry, but it's nothing to call Giles Coren about. And the clientele? Be prepared for a good 50 to 75% of the Olde Sloane Brigade, with their mustard corduroys, red socks and Mulberry bags. It's a nice pub for the area, but an awful lot of braying does go on within!
Lovely pub, definitely will return for drinks. However it has the worst menu of any pub in london I've ever seen. When I did try to order the lamb chops last night - as the only food that looked relatively appealing on the whole menu - they were of course out of them. I then went for the fish and chips with mushy peas, which was a decidedly lacklustre choice. I will NOT be eating here again.....
Best boozer in the area, one I go to time and time again. Worth a visit after a tiring day of shopping, decent bevvies and standard pub affair. It has a slightly quieter upstairs, which not many people know about, so might be good for party hire.
Good atmospere and resonable prices for the area. the tempting rack of bitters keeps you in this cozy boozer longer than you might have planned. Crucially this is tucked away off the main road and far enough away from Victoria train and coach stations to avoid all but the most persistant 'accidental' tourist. Wel worth a visit if only to add to your list of fall back options. This is definitely one for the coldest of winter evenings.
Nice atmosphere, good staff, decent selection of fullers beers, nice traditional british pub food, price above average though for a pub like this.
