A place we've been talking about visiting for months as it is always packed and looks like a nice little pub on Bayswater Road. Given that it's in Holland Park we expected to pay through the nose but were suitably impressed by The Mitre.
Value: 7 - 15 quid per roast so quite exxy, but huge value for money! Big servings and a massive Yorkshire Pudding.
Quality: 10 - you cannot fault the food here, truly outstanding and perfectly cooked. Tender, a little pink and just delicious. I'm salivating thinking about it!
Atmosphere: 9 - hard to fault, but I think we were probably bringing the atmos down a little given we were the poorest people there! Holland Park is a beautiful place and this place fits in perfectly. Lots of families and large groups and a good amount of noise echoing throughout.
Service: 3 - the only let-down of the day. We arrived at 12pm and ate at 3pm. When Loz first visited the bar to order food they said, 'come back in 15'. They then continued that same, 'come back in 15' for 2 hours until I finally cracked the shits. They then served us and it was well worth the wait. No we didn't book and I guess it's fair that they serve the bookings first, but seriously, that's a long bloody wait!
TOTAL : 29/40
Would we go back? In a heartbeat!
