Food yummy as last time.. had Irish sausages which were very yummy (as well as the creamy mash). Partner had the curry and said it was yummy too. I will say though that prices are little higher for a simple 'pub-like' meal - maybe because they are situated on Southbank. However at least it was very yummy.

I absolutely love JP O'Brien's..every 3 months I am there with friends that have reconnected after 45 years apart...we all love it...the food, the atmosphere, and the service.. The friendless of the staff is really what makes the experience special ...thanks guys...

Given the place is super warm and super crowded I’d like to see a cloak room or even just a room where jackets could be put somewhere.
