This pub stands out for the early 20th century Arts & Crafts interior, which is stunning with its marble decoration and bronze bas-reliefs of monks. Ales on offer are pretty good, the Timothy Taylor Landlord and Harviestoun Haggis Hunter I sampled were in good condition and the barman was friendly. Worth visiting.

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.

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.

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

Get lost in the tunnels under the streets. Enjoy the copper sculptures and the fine marble. Luxuriate in the alcove. Drinking here is something of a spiritual experience. The ales are always fresh. The food is good.
