Earls Court pub or restaurant?

We arrive at our Earls Court area hotel around 1pm on Tuesday. Our plan is to have a nice pub (or otherwise) lunch and wander to the V&A for a few hours. Would anyone recommend a place that has good food and good beer in that general area? Appreciate knowing if anyone had a particularly good dining experience in that neighbourhood. Thank you!

The Pembroke would be goo. Instead of a pub, you might also consider eating/drinking at the V&A. Good food and more variety than at most pubs.

There is an excellent restaurant across from the V&a. wE ALWAYS EAT THERe several times on annual trips to London. Orsini"s right next to the Rembrandt Hotel The Pastries are wonderful Baked every day by Mrs Orsini. Prices are reasonable open for breakfast lunch and dinner

Beer-drinking is a serious pursuit in England so it is no surprise the Internet offers plenty of advice. Try these sites for a start:

I've eaten at the Earl's Court pub twice (we liked it), the Courtfield pub - upstairs dining room (good), Gourmet Burger Co. (good for a burger), and The Troubadour Café (really good)-I guess we're easy to please.

We loved Orsini’s and dined there several times during our time in London. The food was fresh and delicious. I would highly recommend it.

If beer is not essential, I'd echo the suggestion about having lunch at the V and A. There was an advertisement a few years ago for "Ace caff with a rather nice museum attached"

Pretty amazing decor in the V&A cafe/restaurant - at least go over the courtyard (weather permitting) or through the relevant gallery to take a look and maybe a coffee or a drink.

Update: we ate at Orsini's on our first evening (fabulous) and the V&A another day (we didn't end up going to the V&A on our first day as planned because the weather was glorious so we did some outdoor things). Thank you for your suggestions.

With respect to the Earl's Court area, there were a couple of decent pubs in the area (The Goose, The Prince of Wales, the Pembroke). All okay spots to have a drink and a small bite.

We so enjoyed our week in London. So much to do and see. Can't wait to go back one day!
