We went there on saturday night and it sems they've changed the menu, so the choice was variations of thai curry or types of burgers and chips. I didn't really fancy either of those options, so after one drink we up'd sticks and went to Alchmey.

The mansion have to be careful not to price out their customers. £9 for a burger and chips when I got roast guinea fowl with puy lentils and foie gras for £14 over the road.

The Mansion is extremely popular - and well deserved too. Both the meat and the vegeterian sunday lunches were excellent this weekend and plenty of them too. An added bonus was that the food was hot!

I was down at the mansion on friday night and sat in the garden. We were there with friends and supposed to eat there. I love the place and go on a regular basis but as you have to pass the kitchen area to get to the bar my stomach turned as all you could smell was old chip fat, disusting. So we left and went to Barcelona in Lordship Lane which is always fantastic food and no bad smells!

I like The Mansion but... the beer prices are eye-watering!

Not been for ages - just too far from my flat. The White Hart is much closer! :D

We finally got round to visiting The Mansion on Saturday for lunch. Been meaning go go for ages but it's a bit of a trek from the other side of the hill.

Anyway, we were well impressed. The decor is fab, the service friendly and the food was lovely. I had a feta, chickpea, beetroot and watermelon salad and my partner had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toasted bagels. We also had sweet potato wedges. This was from their 'brunch' menu. After the very tasty chow, we moved to the sofa by the window where we whiled away some time reading the papers.

Will definitely be going back. :)

Great Pub and very nice food - I love the garden in the summer - service could be though a little bit quicker and more alert on requests.

Really enjoyed my visit to the Mansion a couple of weeks ago after registering with all the EAs on the Triangle. Love the astro-turf in the garden! The place reminds me of a pub that was a favourite of mine when I lived in Shepherds Bush (before I made the wise move sarf) so I'm happy to find it.

Agree about the cooking oil though - I had ham and eggs and while good, there was a definite over-oiled taste. Still, so much else is good that I don't like to complain!

a lunch visit to the mansion - its a real treat, a special place to be treasured, every time i visit it it gets better!
mind you signs saying no sportswear or trainers as mrs b was wearing trackkies and trainers were worrying... still nothing said and the guy running it was wearing trainers and was overheard that all gentlemen would be allowed !

I love this pub more and more everytime I go there. The staff are always friendly and food is always delicious - I had a pumpkin and pommegranite risotto last week, which although I thought sounded strange was actually really nice. As a veggie I have always been happy with what they have on offer.

I also love the quiz night on Tuesday, although did particularly poorly last week.

Just watched a recording of Pulling from midweek and one of the scenes was filmed in the Mansion...

Very funny sitcom btw. :)
