Popped in for a pint on a saturday night as I was staying nearby. Bartender more interested in chatting up a woman at the bar. He was Irish and I mentioned I was too. This didn't help.

We dropped by after a shopping spree and I had the steak pie. It was good. It was not too busy despite the fact that it was the weekend. Nice selection of ales as well.

I enjoyed a pleasant evening here when I was staying at a nearby hotel. Nice selection of beers, and I had a very tasty steak and ale pie. Service was friendly and there was a lively ambiance. Recommendable!

We just wandered into this place a few blocks from Russell Square and the British Museum. Not touristy at all. The bartender seemed to know everyone eating there. The lamb was really good, and it came with a large and delicious selection of vegetables---a delicious spicy red cabbage, green beans, potatoes, yams, etc. Really, this was some of the best... More
