Anywhere else in the country and a big, open scruffy/dirty place like this would be inhabited by a collection of flotsam, jetsam and drunkards. It's got the feel of a pub round the back of a station or market. In London, of course, the clientele are a mixture of office workers and tourists.

The beer's not great, cheap enough from 4-7 when the place is packed but it's not really worth seeking out.

Fantastic old fashioned pub in its own yard just off the High Street. Friendly welcome, a nice pint of Landlord (3.65), and no pressure to order food. Not even sure they served any. Largish square room, solo drinkers dotted around the tables reading newspapers, and some smokers in the yard. After the "here's your hat, what's your hurry" attitude of the Southwark Tavern, I was so relaxed here I had a second pint & pondered a third, but an engagement elsewhere called.

Worth noting that it's £3 a pint from 4 until 7 on Monday-Thursday. And that the Tribute was very drinkable. Proper Job, Harveys and DoomBar were also on the taps.

We stayed here for a couple of hours on an early Saturday night. The place was absolutely buzzing with staff and punters a really friendly bunch. Will definitely be back for more.

Another good session here the other night.. Same six beers on as reported by Blue Scrumpy and although they may not be the most exciting choice in the world, the quality is always spot on.
