Sadly, we did not stay for longer than 5 minutes. The weekday menu was disappointing compared with the choice available on a Saturday or Sunday. I did ask if the chef could accommodate a small change to the menu - a poached egg on a muffin with a little smoked salmon, but this was not feasible. However, the waitress did point out that there were a lot of restaurants around the area, so we took her advice and went and found one. We would normally visit on a weekend and this has always been a lovely experience and I would heartily recommend that. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 31 May 2017

Booked a table for 3 people for Sunday Lunch. Very nice atmosphere, lots of attentive staff, excellent Bloody Marys. Seafood Grill outside with lots of grilled fish. Had the grilled Octopus to start which was delicious. We all ordered Sunday Roast, two Lamb and the Beef for me. Portions were excellent, nice gravy and great roast potatoes. Only criticism would be that the meat was over cooked, both the lamb and the beef but still very tasty. Wine list was a tad limited and the wine we chose was not available from the board. Finished up with the cheese platter to share. Nice selection of cheeses to choose from, shame they had no Port to wash it down. Overall very pleasant lunch and only let down by a few minor things. Would definitely come back. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 28 May 2017

We had a really nice meal, great service, really attentive and friendly and the food was great etc. but at the end of the meal we had left the restaurant and got chased down the street because they thought we had underpaid by £7.80, so we all went back in to try and figure it out and it transpired that they had mixed up two of the receipts, and got no apology, so that kind of marred the experience. Up until then though, 5 stars visited The Colonel Fawcett on 13 May 2017

I love the Pubs decor and the staff are lovely. I had the fish and chips and there was so much Salt on the fish and chips when it was served. I think this choice should be left up to the customer. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 22 Apr 2017

Good atmosphere, limited menu but well cooked. Unfortunately, however, the pub seems to have decided it is serving tapas dishes - so our starters and mains were delivered at the same time, which was annoying to say the least. Even more annoying, especially as I had foreign guests, was that we were told off for not having specified we wanted them separately. And then the main courses were then simply left on the table to get cold instead of being taken away to be kept warm. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 20 Apr 2017

Good seletion of beer. It would be useful to have your menu on your website - we chose not to eat there because the sample menu on your website had few/unappealing veggie options (a salad) whereas you had a couple of decent options. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 01 Mar 2017

Fantastic! I hired the Function Room which is so beautiful! The candles and lighting set the ambience, i really love this venue. Joe, Alex and Rhiannon great customer service delivery! Good recruits Colonel Fawcett. Having a section where you can have live acts perform is a great touch. I believe i will be back there again! Staff at Colonel are very attentive and readily available when you need them. Love the function room. However, there was a bit of a hiccup with the food orders as i sent through a specific number and was told i made changes, so it looked like the person was blaming and putting onus on us. But that got settled as he was pulling a fast one - and i showed the email. I will not name names but his service is appalling. But the 3 names mentioned above had overall good customer service from we first got in contact with Colonel Fawcett. I will definitely recommend Colonel Fawcett. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 18 Feb 2017

Initially, after booking, the promised menus were a little slow to arrive. Also, the table I was looking for was not available on arrival. However, the pre-ordered meals were spot on. The waiters/ waitresses were great and the allocated / reserved space met our needs. A little noisy from too many women with their small children (that's the only complaint). Small children should not be admitted to pubs. Thank you. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 18 Feb 2017

All four of us really enjoyed our first Sunday lunch at the Colonel Fawcett - and so did the fifth member of our party, Cosmo our miniature dachshund who was made very welcome. All three courses more than acceptable, very friendly and surprisingly rapid service, an interesting and extremely wide range of drinks (and not just the gins for which they're famous) - and, I have to say, remarkably good value for money. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 29 Jan 2017

Nice pub with friendly staff. However, the place was boiling hot and we requested the heating to be turned down (with little result). We also found the food rather salty, especially the fish and chips. Not sure we would return for food. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 29 Jan 2017

Great service, however the roast lunch I had was average for the price they charge. I had the lamb with courgettes and mint sauce. The lamb was very good really tender and the potatoes were perfect! The gravy however, was quite runny and quite a lot of it, the mint sauce was not fresh and the Yorkshire pudding was a little burnt. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 15 Jan 2017

I'm so lucky to have the Colonel Fawcett as my local pub. Not only do they have a stonking gin list, but their Sunday roasts are legendary! We went when they opened at midday and the food was great, the service fantastic and they were super helpful given that we had a toddler in tow. I'd totally recommend the pork belly roast. You definitely need to book as they are so popular. Camdenite visited The Colonel Fawcett on 04 Dec 2016

Lovely afternoon. Lots of our big group were late, and numbers changed, but the staff were really friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed the room upstairs as it was nicely tucked away so we had a bit of standing room too. As always, the food was really great. Only issue was the initial booking - it took a couple of chases to get a proper reply to say there was availability, and I'd booked a back up by that time Emma visited The Colonel Fawcett on 04 Dec 2016

I booked our annual Christmas lunch for 25 or so of my friends. The service was good and the staff were friendly. We had a few mishaps with the bill at the end but that got sorted out. The feedback from my friends was they all thought the pub was lovely and cosy and a great venue for a festive lunch. We had a few kids in our party and they were also well looked after. I would definetly go there again. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 03 Dec 2016

Excellent food, friendly helpful staff and a pleasant environment 10/10. Notably the really unusual thing about sitting there for a very relaxed Sunday lunch is that although the place is big the tables are not crammed in - we could not have possibly heard anyone else's conversations - really rare these days. I am a keen cook myself and could find no fault at all with the really delicious plate of roast beef with all the expected trimmings, roasties, yorkshires, carrots and parsnips as well as delicious red cabbage and kale (which still had some body to it. I was absolutely stuffed but in fact found room, after a reasonable break, to taste the fabulous chocolate tart served with sorbet. All in all a fantastic venue for a relaxed Sunday lunch- lots of young families arrived but caused no disturbance at all. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 20 Nov 2016

Googled the best Sunday Roasts in London and came up with your pub. Our party of 3 included 2 Vegetarians who constantly find it hard work to find a good Sunday lunch out but not anymore. Your Vegetarian roast was head and shoulders above any other tried and absolutely amazing, loved it. Unfortunately we live well outside London but we will be booking in everyone we visit in the future. Must also add the service was great and incredibly welcoming. See you again soon. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 13 Nov 2016

Great staff, good food, and very accommodating. I was a little disappointed that there had been a mix up in communication and we didn't have our area booked for the full time, but they did then clear an area downstairs for our group.

Wonderful vegetarian Sunday roasts and available as a vegan option too. On the main menu dishes the poached salmon was delicious, perfectly cooked and very light. A real surprise that a healthy poached fish dish with lentils and spinach could be so tasty. Service was excellent and I'll definitely visit again. visited The Colonel Fawcett on 09 Oct 2016

I held my 30th birthday at Colonel Fawcett in July 2016 (weekend just gone). We hired the upstairs room which is really big and airey. It was amazing. I loved the venue and exceeded all my expectations. The staff were very attentive and polite and friendly and accommodated all our needs. We ordered some food as well which was of a really high quality and the chef even created a vegetarian menu for us. The room had air con which was perfect for a summers day. Everyone commented on what a great place it was. We had use of the speakers so just plugged in our laptop and played all our own music and we even had a slideshow of photos using the projector. Perfect :)
