I can't say that I thought all that much of this place. Okay, this is the second time I've visited it and both times it hasn't really impressed me all that much. Okay, it is hidden away on the back streets, but for some reason that doesn't seem to make this place all that much more appealing to me. It is a bit flashy, especially the restaurant out the back, and the front bar is nice, but nothing all that much out of the ordinary. I did find that the bartender was also a little standoffish,read more
I would like to start with, the grand national is a really great venue. The food and customer service is pretty much impeccable. But here is the problem, Last night, Saturday the 24/11/12 at about 730-8PM. This will be long but please read on.

My personal preference is a rare eye fillet and they get it just right. Other dishes I have enjoyed here include ocean trout with a tomato and capers salsa, served on a bed ofread more
Crawling with young professionals every week night is the Grand National Hotel. A short step off the main strip of Oxford Street you will find this iconic pub nestled on a corner amongst terraced housing. Once inside, wooden tables line small separate eating areas, or you can try out the back for a bit more space. It is quite hard to get a table, so I recommend ordering and then letting bar staff know when you find one. I eat here approximately once a week and have theread more
