Bland and disappointing. The Adnams I had was hardly recognisable as a pint from that fine brewer. One bar maid on who seemed more interested in watching a group of young suits than serving me or the other person waiting. The pool table must be a real moneyspinner - either the balls are smaller than standard or the pockets are larger. Either way a game tends to be over very quickly. A good table to impress someone with your pool skills as it was hard to miss a shot! Even my cue challenged friend was potting them like Alex Higgins.

What a welcome relief to find a friendly bar that can rely on it's staff and drinks to do all the talking.... No gimmicks or chrome and neon, just a warm welcoming place just a few streets away from Petticoat Lane and Liverpool Street that I'd be happy to drink a few more pints of London Pride in.....

What a pretensious name. What has this pub/bar got to do with poets for godsake? .A bust of The Bard doesn't count..

No price list for its beers, I feared the worst so I walked out. It was too noisy anyway. FIlled with suits in anycase.

Plastic leather couches.

This could be so much better if: 1) they had more real ale on sale; 2) they didn't run out of the real ale they have; 3) it stayed open later.

The pop quiz is great but, as mentioned in another post, could do with being better served by the venue.

Moorland Original and Greene King IPA normally served. You will have to get up very early in the morning to find both on at the same time. Bare floorboards as far as the eye can see. This pub gives the impression of space. Pool table by the front window. Often over-intrusive televisions, particularly on European football nights. All pints seem to be edging the 3.00 mark. Most clientele wear suits, so change out of your tracksuit at the door, if you were thinking of leaving the house wearing one. Food served, and it has to be admitted, is quite good. The Tuesday music quiz is well run in spite of a clear lack of support from the venue.

Really more a 'bar' than a pub. If you are looking for the latter, go to the Shooting Star nearby.
