A grand pub, built in 1857 as a hotel, with original stained-glass windows and art nouveau elements. It also has a restaurant on the first floor which used to be a thriving Thai place, then it was taken over by none other than Gordon Ramsay and now under new management it claims to sources fresh seasonal produce to create the very best hearty British pub dishes.
