I come here for their short film movie nights. This place makes a great space for it as it's pretty big and full of couches and chair, although they are well warn.

She huffed and puffed and took my...more

I will forever nurture a fondness for this place but I have to say that it's not what it used to be. Back when I first came to London to visit friends at uni, this place was constantly heaving with too cool for school precursory hipsters, way back when we didn't even call them that. Now it seems in a sad state, only ever packed in the summer on market days. I feel sorry for the guy who mans...more
