Even though have been here before the first impression is that it's very dark and very very busy and hard to find any seating. The drinks are not that great as they don't do branded drinks like Bacardi breezers or smirnoff and white wine spritzers...More

Had a short stay in London, stopped in for a quick drink. The place was fun, the barkeep was very nice, and informative. Beer was good. Do checkout the downstairs as well.
