Good number of staff on, so service quick, reasonable prices and interesting decor. Would recommend it over the Opera Tavern next door which were very snooty and SLOW

There seemed to be a nasty smell lingering inside this pub. Landlord was incredibly surly. Two real ales on tap : I had a pint of Hook Norton's Old Hooky. I say "pint", what I mean is, about 3 sips. It was awful. When well kept, Old Hooky is one of the best beers around, but not in the Smelly Nelly of Old Drury. I protested (nicely) to the landlord, but to no avail. He knows best, obviously ! Give this place a miss, if I were you.
