Portobello Bronze Star at £4.40, also Doombar & Speckled Hen.more

A cool pub attached to a station, quite ornate in places.
Although most of our number went elsewhere when they saw that only

particular the excellent Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.more
This place has undergone a few incarnations over the years including an early Firkin, a lamentable O'Neills and now under the Mitchell & Butler umbrealla its plain old Phoenix again.
As Tim said, pubs in stations are places best avoided (just check out that scene in Get Carter if you don't believe me) but every rule needs its exception.
With it's high ceiling, funky sixties style mezzanine...more
