Saw in a Camra guide they were having a real ale fest so popped in the old peculiar was really nice malt driven beer 3.5 but I got a half of Duchars IPA which was a bit pricier than most places Iíd been. Service was clueless eastern european staff. For an "event" the taps seemed like their regular stuff. Not a beer geek place, pass.

Nice old pub situated in a small lane close to Holburn station. A Good Beer Guide 2015 pub. Beers are well kept (6 ales on when visited). Usual London prices. Worth looking out if in area.

Hidden in the alleyway running adjacent to Holborn on its eastern side (behind the Wetherspoon pub), this is a chain pub with a nice enough pseudo period styling to it that makes it a comfortable place to drink in traditional drinking surroundings. Thereís not a huge amount of natural light in here too given its narrow walkway location, which does add to its ambiance. Itís not the largest of pubs and it was full enough so that no tables were left on a Saturday afternoon with the crowd mainly watching the conclusion to the 6-Nations Rugby tournament. Thereís a row of ales in the middle of the bar with a mix, but mainly better known ales available.

Maybe I went to too many pubs? Enjoyed some good ale and time chatting with my friend whilst being out of the rain. Now I need another beer.

Well above-average London boozer from 1549 (so it says, I can believe it). Dimly lit and atmospheric, somewhat abated by piped music. Beer and food are dear as befits the location.

Popular pub just round from Holborn Tube station. There is a rich history here, it was an oasis for the Catholics in London during Henry Vlllís reign. Now its an opened up pub with a fairly standard range of beers, busy and full on a Friday evening. Slightly disappointing.

Despite the Ship Tavern dating from 1549 and having a beautiful traditional frontage. Inside holds none of the original features and it feels dry and soulless. It is quite expensive for Holborn. The range of aleís wasnít inspiring. There are much better pubs in the Holborn area.

Not bad. A very classic-feeling British pub. Six casks on offer, all decent, though none exceptional, with stuff like St. Austell, Theakston, and Caledonian. At about £4 per pint, this place doesnít offer great value. It is, however, a very attractive pub. I would call this place an íoptioní, but certainly not a destination.
