Service generally good.

Staff attitude, questionable.

Bring the correct cutlery and condiments before the meal is delivered, not to be called back to the table after the food is getting cold.

Food: Average/poor

This is a great pub to meet for a few quick pints in Central London. Tucked away in the narrow lanes behind Liberty, is a late Victorian era watering hole with a fine selection of real ales and wines at reasonable prices.

It's usually packed out after work....but you might find a table hidden towards the back of the pub. If your stomach is grumbling they also serve pub fare upstairs in the...more
