    First to Review

    This pub has a lot going for it and doesn't fail to deliver. There is a good selection of Real Ales and other offering, good food, friendly and eager to please staff, an upstairs bar that will show the sporting event of the moment, comfy sofa's a real fire, a heated beer garden at the rear, plenty of space / tables and a strange isolated side bar.

    This seems to be a well run pub, offering different things for different people and doing this well; I really can't fault it.

    If you are in Kingston and don't try this place out, you are missing out.

    A friendly pub in the centre of Kingston, mere minutes away from the river. It is laid-out on a few levels so you can pick your setting to suit your mood.

    I especially enjoy chilling here, on one of the comfy shabby-chic leather sofas, with the Sunday papers and a chilled glass of white in the summer, or a glass of warming red, in the winter. There's a good choice of well-priced wine on offer and a range of beers (but I'm not an aficionado there so I'll leave you to discover those for yourself) I've also found it a pleasant place to relax and chat over an evening drink - less rowdy than some other central pubs.

    This pub is laid out well, which meand the night can be either personal or social. The service is good, so you wont wait too long for a drink. The outside seating area is large and heated in the winter. Overall it has a good feel to it.

    This pub is always full, the food is great, I would recommend the platters.. It's also great at this time of year as there is the Market right outside ..

    This is my fav. pub in central Kingston to meet, chat and have drinks with mates in the evenings.

    The pub is quite big, 2 floors (although I've only seen the upstairs bar open on a Thurs., Fri., and Sat.). Both floors have a nice selection of tables and comfy, chill-out sofas and big chairs (although you gotta go before 6pm to have a chance of bagging one).

    The atmosphere in here is very conducive to chatting and catching up with un-intrusive music and enough space to not be standing on peoples toes or sitting on their laps.

    They do have a few televisions scattered about the place including a large one on the top floor with a Sky subscription and they do show football with the volume on (certainly have the times I've been there) which can be a bit distracting if you've plunked yourself down near a telly earlier, before the coverage starts.

    I think they have a fab. wine selection. About a month ago, they were doing the buy 2 glasses and get the bottle free promotion which they still might be doing. I was getting a quality bottle of Spanish Rioja for £10.50 quid which is a good pub price considering I recently paid £11.50 for 2 glasses of house red at All Bar One in Richmond!

    I've eaten there a few times and never had a bad meal (albeit, the several pints beforehand might have had something to do with it :-) ). The food is a good mix of traditional pub food with a curry or 2 thrown in for 6-9 quid.

    So, not the quietest pub in Kingston , but I'd definitely recommend it for evening drinks any week night if you want to be able to talk and be heard in a comfy, cozy setting but still like a bit of 'pub-atmosphere'.

    quiet daytime pub in the centre of the market square in kingston- altho it doesnt boast amazingly cheap pints or a river side location, it does have a lovely peaceful beer garden a looooong bar n if u cant be bothered with the hustle n bustle of the prime location pubs in the hot weather, it makess a great retreat
