We used to come here a lot to watch football, but tonight it was utterly awful. No sound on the sport and the disgusting stench of urine 10 yards away from the toilets. Disinterested staff don't help. Avoid.More

Decent pub with friendly bar staff, fairly good selection of drinks and in a very good location right opposite the station. Prefer it in here than to the Whetherspoons.

I really wouldn't bother going here for food. A large group of us went on a Saturday night. The starters came out in good time and were fine, you can't really go wrong with nachos and the addition of pomegranate seeds was nice. We then...More

Avoid. Came here for a business lunch, was told food our meal wouldn't start to be prepared for 45 minutes. After 1 hour we chased. After 1 hour 20 minutes we were told they would not be serving us with any food!! Disgraceful.

Personally I wouldn’t recommend this place to anybody – it is little more than a dump, though the construction going on outside, and the incredibly horrible weather, probably had something to do with it as well. The thing is that most of London’s pubs tend...More
