Good Hotel Guide Review
In one of those atmospheric London entities – a street that feels like a village in the heart of the capital – this hip pub-with-rooms assumes the role of community hub, yet has ‘a great location’, within minutes of frenetic Oxford Street. Large French doors welcome visitors into a room with an exposed steel joist, open fireplaces and mounted antlers. There, and one floor up in the dining room, all pale wood panelling and contemporary earth tones, chef Leigh Hartnett’s ‘largish’ all-day menu offers ‘good’ seasonal British gastropub fare, perhaps Cardington grass-fed rib-eye, truffle and Parmesan fries, Béarnaise sauce. The pub downstairs may be busy, but upstairs, calm reigns in the ‘thoughtfully furnished’ bedrooms, where a rustic yet chic mood is evoked in coir mats, tastefully muted hues, beams and vintage prints. There are posh teas, a cafetière with ground coffee, filtered water, free-range hangers and an ‘excellent’ bathroom, with ‘especially good’ Aesop toiletries. ‘We had rooftop views from our beautiful top-floor room.’ At breakfast, charged separately, perhaps porridge, coconut, chia seeds, apple compote; smoked ham hock, poached egg. The Orange, in Pimlico, is a sister inn (see entry).
