Qype: The Spaniards Inn in London

London - Pubs & Bars - Pubs

I'd love to give the Spainard's another star, really I would, but this is not really the place to come on Saturday afternoons. In its favour, it's a great watering hole after a nice walk around Ken Wood, or one just around the roads of Hampstead if you're a Rolls Royce fan. It has a delicious menu, real ales and ciders on tap, and is extremely dog friendly. On the downside, why they have one person serving a pub with around 300 people baying to buy food and drink is really beyond me. We're talking literally 30 minute queues! They would actually make a lot more money if they had more staff on - bizarre. The other thing that lets it down is the food, fortunately not my food, my steak was delicious! But the portions of ham and cheese in the ploughmans were really quite pathetic, almost as if they had run out and were trying to cut ever-thinner slices for each plate. So, three stars from me for now, needs some work.
