I have been coming here for years, a favorite when I worked in London. Despite a disappointment that they do not serve Strongbow I had as always a great time.

The attitude of the supervisor towards his customer was poor, a rude and miserly man. Nothing more to say really, so many other good pubs within 5 minutes walk.

Great after-the-office scene. Good beer, good atmosphere. Takes you back. Only thing missing is the cigarette smoke !

We came across this pub by accident as we had been to Fortnum and Masons and it is in the street at the back of the store. What an absolutely beautiful pub it is with gorgeous windows and mirrors. Husband also enjoyed his pint of London Pride. We met one of the regulars who informed us that this was just the very best pub in the whole of London. We agreed with him. He said that he would have liked to introduce us to the Landlady, however it was her day off so he was not able to. Would have liked to have met her to congratulate her on her beautiful clean pub. We will definetly make a point of returning to this pub next time we are in London.

This is both a Good Beer Guide entry, and a "Heritage" Pub. In both cases it doesn't disappoint. The London Pride was excellent, one of the best I had in the capital, and the internal décor is very interesting.

If you like great beer and / or historical buildings, then this is a must visit when in London.
