|Excellent pub. Spoilt for choice with the beers, given the five real and further keg offerings (of which the Big Mofo Stout was the pick, but er, not a session beer at 10%+). Previous comments may be in relation to the rather dour Scot behind the bar, I can see why some may be put off.|
Would definitely return to this pub.

|Visited 4 times in last few months. "Angry, surly barman" is hardly the cuddly type (I believe there are other pubs in the area that cater for that need!) but I've never had any problems with him. Always prompt to serve, knows his ales and the only time I've been given a bad pint was end of barrel (it happens) and it was changed without question. A good selection (5) of Brodies excellent ales with Kiwi being the favourite amongst our company. Also tried their new key-keg offering which was full of flavour but I am not a fan of this over-chilled, over-priced fad called "craft" ales.|

|angry, surly barman who accused my friend of not saying 'thank you' as he delivered two half pints which were two fingers short of full.|
... may re-assess whether to bother returning, as much as i like brodies beer.

|Oh dear Oh dear - what has happened here? Saturday evening - first beer was off and the barman - who looked pi**ed to us - wouldn't change them. We asked the landlord to test the beer and give us his opinion. "I don't drink beer" came the reply. What - you are joking!! This is a Brodies pub which promotes the micro-brewery's products and you employ a manager who doesn't drink beer!!!!!!! Anyway, beer was eventually changed and our money refunded (the barman made us pay for the second choice). Sadly,this ale was also a bit naff so we left.|
Now- I have used this pub on several occasions before now and it has always been pretty good but after this performance I shall be re-considering whether I visit again or not. I sincerely hope that this was just a "one-off".

|Enjoyed my visit here the other day. Didn't eat at all but was impressed with the service and the number of real ales available. Several Brodies beers on and as LennyBanter mentioned the staff were happy to offer samples of each one. |
The decor is interesting. Lots of posters and paintings with no set theme at all. Boxing in one area old WW1 posters in another.
Being in the Soho area it got really busy come the evening.
A good time and I'll definately pay another visit.
