Lousy pub. Historically superb and a “must have a drink there destination” but what a disappointment. Poor beer, disgusting Diet Coke, poor service. Go with low expectations and you won’t be disappointed. Drink up quick and leave.

Passed there on Sat night. I didn't go in as it's still a dive. The only new thing I noticed was spotlights on the sign outside.
