Good Hotel Guide Review
On a narrow street lined with independent shops and restaurants, this voguish pub-with-rooms is equal parts bustle (downstairs in the busy pub) and calm (upstairs in the ‘thoughtfully furnished’ bedrooms). Coir carpets, pale woods and old London prints give the place a pleasing contemporary feel; bedrooms on the upper floors – there is no lift – continue in this modern-rustic vein. ‘Our beautiful top-floor room looked down over rooftops to a small mews. There were proper sash windows that we could open; noise wasn’t a problem. The bathroom was excellent, with especially good toiletries. On the tea tray: fancy teas, a large bottle of filtered water, a jar of ground coffee for the cafetière (they gave me decaf when I asked).’ Stay in for dinner in the ground-floor bar or the first-floor dining room, and order off the ‘largish menu’ of bistro-style dishes, perhaps Lyme Bay mackerel, nettle dumplings; artichoke fritter, charred broccoli, courgettes. Breakfast, charged separately, might include home-baked pastries and a ‘splendid bacon and eggs’. ‘A great location’: Marble Arch and Oxford Street are minutes away. The Orange, a sister inn, is in Pimlico (see entry).
