The Cat & Lantern is still much missed, but I doubt anyone will miss the ill conceived 'Village Bar'.

Er, obviously that should read "now The Village Bar" rather than "not The Village Bar". My bad, terrible typist!

Possibly the finest recovery since Lazarus!
This is not The Village Bar and is an entirely different and infinitely preferable establishment to the decrepit old flea pit it replaced.
Completely redone from top to toe this is now a clean, minimalist and even dare I suggest it half-way trendy bar but not one that is in any way stuck-up or exclusive.
The internally lit bar is visually impressive and manned by efficient and friendly staff. Furniture is off the modern low, cube-shaped lumps of upholstery school that aren't terrible by any means but aren't comfotable enough to encourage you to settle in for the evening.
It shows all the football matches you could want on good quality screens which are placed so as to give a good view from any angle in the pub and has a nice, not-too-boisterous but not too quiet atmosphere when matches are on. There is some football memorabillia to see on the walls as well, and the governor is a Spurs fan which is always a bonus!
Drinks wise, range is ok but a bit on the limited side and no real ales are present. Beck's Vier is lovely though. Not cheap but not as expensive as your initial visual assesments might lead you to believe.
Worth a visit.
