Very pleasant dinner bed and breakfast stay
Organised re spacing, sanitisers, closing times for bar and restaurant, all service to tables, and sanitising the room between guests, including the contents of the minibar apparently! Breakfast staff not wearing masks though. Good bed, stocked minibar with snacks, good coffee and tea, nice bathroom with bath and separate shower ( some rooms have shower over bath) . Pleasantly decorated room, carpet a little tired, and in corridors. Restaurant was very good, delicious vegan meal, good choice of wines by the glass, good breakfast. Parking limited but free of charge. Staff pleasant and accommodating.

Could be fantastic with a little care and attn
Great location on the common easy to get to from Clapham North or South. Let down by a terrible Sunday lunch appalling microwaved meal with no substance or appeal and it was £20 per person. Pub and dining room look like they could do with a deep clean sometime soon. Breakfasts were good and room quirky
