I was just killing time before the train left and wandered off the main road. Luckily I found this old fashioned but welcoming pub serving real ale and good food. Some outside seating too.

Good selection of local cask ales as well as some great beers on tap. Friendly staff and locals who frequent the bar. 1 note is even though AMEX Vicinity says they take American Express, they unfortunately do not.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
