At long last, after 13 years, got to return to this gem again. It exceeds my fond memories. Got to take my Brazilian friend and she was suitably impressed. I had about four or five cask ales that were pretty good. Also had some scotch eggs that were on the lame side. The bowl of pistachios was just that, the mixed olives were good. Service was decent and they were very open to providing free tastes. Friednly crowd. And of course, the aesthetically perfect pub interior.

Stayed at the Crown Plaza just over the street so had occassion to come here several time. Great pub ambiance helped by the exterior and interior setting especially the wall decorations. Very friendly, good selection of ales and good food, except one night the kitchen closed for an emergency

Cool wedge-shaped building... the interior is all dark wood, marble, and bronze. Only four cask ales (varies daily) and a half dozen fizzy yellow Eurolagers... plus some bottled beer, cider, and cheap wine. Staff is knowledgeable about the beer, reinforced by seeing them all sample a new product together. Typical London pub food, no different than anywhere else. The outside patio seating would be pleasant if you werenít constantly surrounded by chainsmokers. Visit for the atmosphere and photo ops more than anything else.

One of my favourite pubs in London. Stunning interior. Glad to see that itís preserved and that the modern buildings around it have been adjusted to make room for it. The beer range has improved after the take over from Nicolsons and the food is still good. Living in a hotel around the corner and having this as our local is a dream come true.

Not a bad place, just a shame the selection is poor, the price isnít that fair and the service was pretty weak in my opinion.
