My son is a peep show fan so we popped into the Oval Tavern to see where some scenes were filmed. Thank you to the amazing bar staff who were so welcoming and friendly.The pub is gorgeous with a stunning atmosphere. We will 100% be back in the future so we can enjoy it fully. ❤️

Came here today, was having a nice time in a pub I've come to regularly in the past. Until a group of people came in and allowed their dog on the table. It was walking and sitting on the surface of the table. Then it drank out of a beer glass. Bar staff did nothing and actually stroked the dog. Unbelievable, talk about hygiene.

Was having a nice lunch until four people came in and let their dog sit and walk all over their table. It also drank out of their pint glasses. Bar staff not only did nothing but went over and stroked the dog. Was approached by one of the people and told not to stare as they also felt uncomfortable. So disappointed as a lovely pub but I won’t eat or drink here again due to disgusting hygiene.

Went on a Sunday when live band was playing. Was little crowded but staff tried to serve the best they could. Parking is a problem for this pub..decent place to walk if you stay near east Croydon or use public transport.

Fab pub run by friendly, efficient staff who do a tremendous job especially when they’re busy!!! Very popular with locals. This is how a pub should be run.

Great cosy pub tucked away on a quiet street. Such a good vibe with the jazz playing - a real mood booster on a drizzly grey day. Fab roast dinner, we had the lamb! Really impressed with the range of veg (red cabbage, swede mash, parsnip, carrot, broccoli) as well as crispy roast potatoes, a stuffing ball and huge Yorkshire pudding! Appreciated them bringing over extra gravy as a standard - you can never have too much! Cauliflower cheese was decent too. All in all a lovely afternoon. We'll be back!

Decent little pub in Croydon, we went on a Saturday on a somewhat sunny day a d the garden was busy but we managed to find seats. The food was simple but tasty and at an extremely affordable price.There was a drag show going on that evening, which looked fun, but as we hadn't booked, there was nowhere for us to watch the show. The inside is tiny.Vegetarian options: Lots of veggie options are included in the menu to most meat dishes.
