Beware £5.50 a pint few signs of the prices, Regular M&B dominant in the area. Average food and pricey beer and little character in my opinion.

My once a year visit while the art fair is on at Regents Park on a Sunday tea time.

The inside layout has changed from my last visit with more open floor space after the removal of the banister type railing that used to be near the bar.

Plenty of bar staff on ready to serve. I was a tad disappointed to see only 2 ales available across the 5 hand pumps. Purity UBU and my choice which was Sunny Republic’s Red Bus @ 4.8% which was a decent pint.

Busy with the rugby world cup on the TV’s, most of the punters were tuned into this with the average age being early 30’s.

A nice enough pub, it’s handy for several tube stations and the ale is decent I just have no other opportunity or reason to use this place other than every October.

Came in for a beer just before closing time on Tuesday evening.

Choice of 5 ales, with regulars like Doom Bar & Pride I went for a pint of Hopdaemon’s Skrinshander IPA @ 4.5%. A decent enough pint.

Earlier on (9.30pm) the place was mobbed but after 11pm it had almost emptied.
2 efficient bar staff.

A decent pub with good beer choice.

Decent gastro pub. Empty on my visit on Saturday lunchtime. Not surprised as the Sambrook's Lavender Hill was £4.10 a pint.

This was once the venue for the legendary Heavenly Social club night run by Heavenly Records in the nineties and so has a storied history, Much changed now though and smart in a gastro pub kind of way. I enjoyed my beers - Summer Lightning and Harbour while they also have Doom Bar and a few continental lagers of the premium variety. Otherwise, a little unremarkable.
