What does your business do?
We are a classic local pub, great beer & spirits range with a really interesting menu using only fresh ingredients. Our favourite is probably our homemade pies
What motivated you to do what you do?
I’ve been in the trade for 20 years, I have a degree in hospitality and it has always been something I wanted to do. I have a desire to make people happy, there is no greater reward in my view
What is your Unique Selling Point?
Our wooden panelled dining room fully equipped with chandelier & giant portrait of Queen Adelaide plus our open fire creating a really cosy atmosphere
Who is your ideal customer/client?
The wonderful local residents of W12 plus I personally would love Gordon Ramsay to come and try our delights, I have always admired him as a chef and person – not a Kitchen Nightmare in sight, I can assure you
What gives your business the edge over your competitors?
Consistently good service! I work hard with my team in the importance of good service, of course food & drink needs to be spot on but you’ll be surprised how much a smile, hello & goodbye can actually go
Do you have a particular service or product you’d like to flag up here?
We have a great pub quiz every Monday night and on Wednesday (Pie Wednesday) we offer a free drink when you buy one of our homemade pies, plus on Sundays it really is the place to be for one of the best roasts around
