|Went there last Friday - heaving by 7pm.|
Drank several decent pints of Punter from the Upham brewery, and Wainwrights from Thwaites.
One of the better real ale haunts in Soho.

|Been going here off and on over the years, sometimes a good rendezvous point and then move on! Ale has always been average to good! So hardly worth a post, as not doing anything better than lots of other pubs. BUT, was in a couple of weeks ago and when I ordered a round, I noticed the barman sneakly trying to top up a half filled pint of slops! When I asked him to stop and pour me a fresh pint, he said it was fresh, I persisted and he begrudgingly, and in a state of annoyance, speedily poured another, he finished the round, and I asked him to top the first pint up, which it took 2 attempts to do, temper prevailing!!! When pints cost very close to £4 in Soho, I'm not gong to settle for a sub-standard pint or back down when customer service is a merely an inconvenience! Beer still average to good, but bar service needs to improve considerably!|

|A nice exterior but that's where it ends as it is, like so many Soho pubs, rather rubbish. We found the tip of a straw floating in one of our pints although the barman was suitably apologetic and did furnish us with a new one (accidents happen - at least it wasn't a condom). Too crowded by half although the ale selection is decent.|

|Popped in here last night & can say with hand on heart, the ale here was shocking.|
Tried three pints by Thwaites, St Austell & Timmy Taylor & all were poor, especially the Thwaites which was undrinkable. The quality of the beer overshadowed the short measures.
Fortunately, I had popped into the Old Fountain prior to the Pillars!

|Reasonably good selection of ales and lagers. Whilst not spectacular, well worth a visit if you're in the area. No doubt I'll be back in the summer.|
