what the critics say


Andy Lynes - 2/5

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 - You don't come to this handsomely made-over pub in a chi-chi Notting Hill back street for originality. But you can eat well, especially if you order 'Great British bar snacks' such as deeply flavoured, home-smoked salmon with a mini loaf of excellent soda bread, or a superior sausage roll...Chicken Kiev is a deep-fried ball of breadcrumbed chicken on a huge shallow-fried hash brown sitting on a bed of musty-tasting coleslaw; it's a clumsy dish that tastes mostly of garlic butter and grease.


TimeOut - 4/5

Tuesday, June 01, 2010 - New life has been breathed into the original wooden floorboards that lap around a striking dark wooden central bar, swish chandeliers hang from the ceiling and enormous glass cabinets showcase an assortment of classic culinary knick-knacks and antiques...With chicken Kiev, fish fingers and mushy peas, a traditional ploughman's and jammy dodgers for dessert, there's a cheeky and almost childish nod to nostalgia from chef Jesse Dunford Wood. The lamb scrumpets made for a beautiful beer snack and the table service was informed and not in-your-face.

A Rather Unusual Chinaman

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - The Beef Tea was an outright winner, not just for being pure crazy, but it fully delivered on flavour too. Little scones came with a bovril butter with what I think was a bit of fat speckled on top. Add to that a cup of "beef tea" which was actually a consomme packing in the essence of cow...The pork loin was wonderfully cooked, and those mustard and paprika pickled vegetables cut through the rich pig perfectly. The little crubeen on the side (a little piggy croquette essentially) was packed with fatty pig meat which just coated your mouth in the best possible way.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 - The slightly disturbingly named Cow Pie came out looking glorious. Crisp golden brown pastry topped an excellent beef and ale filling. And in the centre of that pie was a big marrow bone whose marrow had been scooped out, mixed with garlicky, herby breadcrumbs and then stuffed back in - it was fabulous. A Chicken Kyiv came out looking marvellously spherical and sat on top of a potato rosti and some slaw. And yes, as expected, a lot of delicious garlic butter came gooshing out when we cut into it -'m such a sucker for a good chicken kiev.

Saturday, May 29, 2010 - Lamb Scrumpets - another new one on me - were rissoles of meat that had been breaded and deep fried. Larry was pretty fatty but since the frying was good they weren't de trop. I also liked Dorset Meatballs - little porky spheres in a tomato sauce with lots of fennel in the mix...In spite of an indifferent main course the relaxed surroundings, good beer, a bit of original thinking in the snack department and smiley efficient service contributed to me having a pleasant time at The Mall Tavern.
