Small but good range of different beer. Liked the atmosphere of the pub. However, the barman didn't like it when I asked for my pint to be topped up. Dick.

I've spent many happy hours in the Pillars over the years but a visit 2 weekends ago was the first in some time and it was a sorry reflection of its former self.
The ale was undrinkable (I took mine back and asked for a glass of water instead and another of our group left two thirds of his pint untouched), my chair barely had a seat on it and the staff were curt and unfriendly.
It's probably a reflection of Saturday evening in Soho with most of the punters knocking back crap like Jaegerbombs but I won't be rushing back any day of the week.

My guide to London's best Pubs describes this as a "good honest London pub in the heart of Soho". I think that sums it up as, during my visit it was busy but not rammed full and it just seemed to have a good atmosphere. It just struck me as everything a good pub should be :-a place for adults to socialise and not a gastro creche as so many pubs outside city centres have had to become to survive.
A nice pint of "Hercules", moreish enough to have a second. But a bit sobering in that it was my first to hit the £4 per pint line. There is a nice seating area alongside the bar front, with partition screens.
For my snapshot of a visit anyway a good, proper pub with a great name.

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!
