Not prepared for what was inside - what a joyful surprise.

Bar area still has wooden partitions, snob glass and breaks up a very ornate central horsehoe bar. Fun getting through the 3ft doors without looking like a prat. Ornate Tiling.

Lovely to see the period detail.

Best pint of the evening - an exceptional Youngs Special.

Worth visiting.

Nice example of a period pub, complete with original bar partitions and restaurant out back where there once was a skittle alley... Beware of the local thug called 'Nick', he inflicted ABH to myself and to my friend who was pregnant at the time! Police were called, but the bar staff protected his identity when he fled (he obviously has previous). Otherwise enjoyed this pub for many years prior. Many specialist ales on draught and bottled, good selection of nibbles if you can't afford the restaurant. Nice both in summer and winter. Would recommend.

Currently boarded up but fortunately only for ceiling repairs.

Remarkably a pub which Youngs hasn't ruined! Four small bars divided by wooden screens and a larger saloon bar remain - a unique survival in London's pubs . It has been refurbished since I visited last ten years ago and somewhat improved. Youngs Ordinary in good condition. There's a dining room adjacent to the pub through which you go to get to the loos.

As below, the high-ceilinged Victoriana is a joy to behold, with the front section of the pub suitably maze-like along with the gin palace air. Food portions look ample, and it was bedecked with the checked-shirted on a Sunday lunchtime. The only gripe is the prices - I was put off of selecting the superb Charles Wells/Dogfish Head New World IPA after seeing it priced at £5.04 on the drinks menu.
