I went to this pub on Thursday and will never go again. The young bar maid poured the slops from the slops tray into a pint glass then topped it up with beer from the pump and then served it to me. I complained vociferously...More

This is our first time visit London and we had dinner at the Devereux. The PUB is not the crowded and it is nice place to hang out. We had chicken mushroom pie, the taste is good. The service is also good and friendly.

every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
