The Lansdowne Restaurant Review

: This corner pub has enormous plain windows looking out over leafy Primrose Hill, the street thankfully mostly devoid of traffic. You can eat either in the bar or upstairs in the dining room. Well-spaced mismatched chairs and tables and the menu chalked on a blackboard above the fireplace may be gastropub clichés, but they work. Warm salads, soups and perhaps a tart to start, followed by sausages and mash, grilled fish with marinated vegetables and a pasta dish. Pizzas are a strong point. Flavours are gutsy and robust. Sunday means all three courses; the rest of the week you can pick and choose.
