Great pub for a lazy sunday. I had a carpaccio of swordfish for starters and it was a revelation. The roast beef that followed was cooked to perfection, decent york's pud and good quality vegs. Can't ask for more and the setting is cozy, stylish yet unpretentious. Check this one out.
I wandered past here on a Saturday afternoon with a friend, both of us Cornish in one way or another, and having never been in, glanced through the window.
"Oh look, they've got three Cornish beers on!". By this point we'd just walked past the building. We stopped, did an abrupt turn, and peered through the glass again. "It's Sharps beer".
Several nanoseconds later, we'd both ordered a pint of Cornish Coaster, and were surveying the interior. A nice airy lounge bar with a traditional pub feel, plenty of seating and by the looks of it, very welcoming to families. The beer was served in glass tankards, which is a rarity these days. Plus points for that.
Some people were eating, some were drinking coffee, others had wine or real ale. The beer was well-kept, and went down a treat.
We only stopped in for the one, so I don't know what the food is like, but having had a glance at the menu I am tempted to come back and try it out. I doubt they always do all-Cornish beer, but hopefully it means that the landlord has good taste!
I stumbled across the Prince with a friend while trying to find a pub with free WiFi. We were most pleased to have chanced upon the Bonaparte. I did however regret having had lunch previously as the menu here looked good. Decent bitter on tap, spacious tables, low key atmosphere (on a midweek afternoon anyway) will bring me back again. The decor reminded me of a handful of other pubs around town (most notable the Carpenters Arms in Fitzrovia) that have a tongue-in-cheek and somewhat twee feel while still retaining an edge and a a sense of contemporary urban taste. As a freelancer that finds myself bopping all over town for work, I love coming across gems like this - just a good place to plop down for a spell while grabbing a bite and/or a pint and doing a bit of work - or simply collecting my thoughts.
This used to be my local and the food has always been quite good (bangers and mash that sort of thing) but it went through a stage where the service was truly bad. Things seem to have improved recently so there should be nothing holding you back. A lovely pub. See more here www.gourmet-chick.blogspot.com
The food is great, such a great choice on the menu , for all tastes, a great pub if you have a baby as they accomodate you and its not too noisy lovely lounge areas to sit in or long tables to share on colder days they have a great fire going to warm the place up, the wine list is also great , had a superb bottle of red, and the prices are reasonable. The menu had great vegetarian choices I had th spinach and lentil burger , really good , my husband had the bacon burger and was very impressed.
This place has been refurbished in the last year and looks really great and welcoming.l
This is a wonderful pub for all occasions. mainly, its great for a pint on a sunday afternoon with great hearty food. also good in the evenings, although it does get very busy, great place to bring friends for a drink before a night out or something. the service is really good, all the people are very friendly. you can get quit erowdy crowds coming in on weekend nights but generally a peaceful and enjoyable place to eat and drink
The Bonaparte has been a favourite of many local friends for a good while now. It's had a recent refurb which personally I thought took some of it's slightly ramshackle charm away but the cleaner lines will please most I am sure. It's a big, airy space with plenty of natural light. It can get quite busy at times (a good reflection I guess) and the service can be a bit patchy then but generally it's a great place to go and spend an afternoon or an evening. The food has always been excellent consisting of well executed pub standards (bangers and mash, roasts, fish, salads etc) and while you can eat anywhere in the pub, there is a great dining space at the rear if you want to avoid the crowds. All up, an excellent local haunt.
