“Birthday weekend”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

stumbled across this while sheltering from torrential rain en route to hotel. What a find! Downstairs there is a lovely bar and out the back a shisha terrace which smelt lovely! We ate in the piano lounge and had a lovely meal. little bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Lovely surroundings and staff very friendly would def eat here again

“If you are in your 40s, it's your kinda place”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

And I mean that in a good way. The music was 80s, but the good edgy, interesting and creative 80s, not the soul-sapping glitzy, syntho 80s. The craft beer is great if you like that kinda thing - doesn't really interest me, but nor is it a problem. The food was meaty, but a fishy veggie like me just about found enough to enjoy - a simple BBQ bean pot and a great shrimp burger. The waitress was excellent. All in all a good, friendly, local pub.

“As Local as it gets”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Agree with review of 8 March 2013, this is a local pub, close to Canary Wharf and Britannia Hotel and a real London local pub, no modern features and decor, mix of locals and business types customers. There was some building work and fences up on our visit which obstructed the entrance somewhat but pleassant for a couple of drinks, probably not the whole evening !!

If you want modern pub chain, steer clear of the North Pole !!

“Cheap food good selection of beer”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We took friends because we heard it was cheap- you get what you pay for, the veggi burger (falafal) was awful but the friends said the double cheeseburger and chicken burgers were good. There was a really great selection of beer and all the bottles of wine were under £20. The service was friendly although our friends thought a bit over friendly as the waitress kept patting everyone everytime she came over.

“Lovely barman. Great little pub for a quiet drink.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This was a lovely little pub squirrelled away near the hotel with a legend of a barman and extremely cheap drinks! Definitely recommend!
