Pretty standard Nicholsonís pub located close to Liverpool Street Station. Long rectangular room fitted with mostly high wooden tables. The space definitely didnít inspire me to stick around. 7 beers available on cask, 5 of which were rotating (Doom Bar and Pride seem to be the permanent fixtures). Not an awful selection. The usual crapís on keg. Service was fine. The prices were a bit punchy (1.95 for a half of 4% beer). Overall, perhaps worth a shot if youíre changing trains at Liverpool Street. Otherwise, spend a few minutes looking for a better spot.

Nice modern pub in old fashion style. Think most people go here for eating. Close to Liverpool Street Station.
Had only golden ale and bitter at my visit. But found a new county ;-)

A alright pub, though certainly not the best Nicholsonís Iíve visited. They have about six cask ales on, which usually offer a good range of golden ales, bitters and porters. Service was mediocre to average; the server brought me a pint when I asked for a half, and then proceeded to tell me I should specify when I want a half (which I did initially. I only order halves. I probably whisper in my sleep "Iíll have a half of...") Decor is classic pub. Prices are average for Nicholsonís, which is to say, a bit higher than I would want to pay given the average quality of the beers they serve. For a City pub it isnít terrible; although, there are actually a handful of other Nicholsonís pubs in the vicinity (less than a five-minute walk) so if given the choice I would opt for one of them.

Very nice location, directly in front of the Liverpool Street station. We went there for 2-3 pints and a snack (delicious beer battered mushrooms & onion rings)! Good selection of cask beers. Had a Butcombe Old Vic and a St. Peterís India Pale Ale! Small selection of bottled beers.
Good location, but there are much more better pubs in this area!

On our way to White Hart Lane to support the hammers we stopped for a few quick pints in this pub just outside the main entrance to Liverpool Street station. The pub is a free house with quite a decent selection of cask ales and bottles. I had ales from Triple FFF and the Old Vic from Butcombe, both found to be in excellent shape and served at the right drinking temperature. This street corner pub gave a fair enough impression, however, being quite noisy and crowed at the match day. Service could be improved (visited early on Saturday 19th March 2011).

Around 25 brews on tap. A few on bottle and a small selection of ciders. Some guest ales. Cosy but loud music. Frindly staff but absolutely no knowledge about beers.

Sort of a modernized Victorian scene. Food is said to be ok. Ales vary, but the unusual have appeared upon occasion. Itís worth a visit, if you are near Liverpool Station. Like,perhaps, heading to Ripper territory.
