The Hero of Maida


Formerly The Truscott Arms, this gastropub is another venue from the Harcourt Inns group.

Under the direction of former Racine chef Henry Harris, The Hero of Maida ties together restaurant-quality food with a charming atmosphere. Specialising in French and British cuisine, this friendly neighbourhood pub is ideal whether it's a couple of after-work pints with friends or weekend brunch.

Split over two levels, the ground floor serves as a traditional pub with light lunch and dinner options. On the upper floor, there's a dedicated dining and restaurant space with a more developed menu. The pub also serves delicious roast dinners on Sundays, with seven-hour slow roasted lamb shoulder and Angus beef both appearing on the menu.
