As this is the first rating at this pub, it would suggest that not a lot of people know this place. That might explain why, whenever I go, there are only a handful of folk in there. It might also explain why when I visited yesterday (29/12) I was informed that theyw ere closing - at 1845! Even the bloke at the bar seemed stunned!! Anyway, this is a nice quite pub. One long bar, stunningly well kept victoian place, lots of bright glass after the dark woodiness and crampedness of the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese which is 2 minutes walk away. Sam Smiths again, so I feel it difficult to penalise choice....altho the range of Sam Smiths is all here. Nice open fire warning what sometimes seems a cold pub (in winter). However, if you are sick of the ’Cheese’ and its touristy hey-nonny-nonny thing, pay it a visit. The OBB was excellent, and good value!!
