“A good business boozer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

A good pub close to my office - good pub fare and nothing to complain about. Gets very busy in the evenings and has a good mixed crowd.

“Busy during Olympics, but efficient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Popped in for a couple of beers after seeing a show in the West End, it was "happy hour" and very busy but the staff handled everything very well. We didnt eat but it looked quite decent

“Bad service and tasteless food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

The barmaid spoke very little English and had little knowledge of the menue. The burger I ordered was their speciality, which was a terrible mess of pre-fabricated heated ingredients.
Tasteless and not worth the 10£ i gave for it.

“Typical English pub - good cheap food :)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Between Piccadilly and Regent Street - you can't get a much better location for a traditional English pub! Great varied food menu and very reasonable. Always very busy and plenty of room upstairs to eat if the bar is full. Very quick service even when really busy.
