I am giving 5 stars to the toilets and 3 stars to the girls behind the bar who don't drink beer but did manage to pour us a pint after we blindly chose a couple. Fun little corner and almost all local.more
Stopped here for a couple of drinks last Saturday before heading upstairs to have dinner at The fat Bear.
The place is VERY quiet. Especially for a Saturday night in Central London. The whole area is very quiet to be honest, but it was a bit alienating. It was empty.
