Comedy nights are great. An Irish comedian, Simon, is normally on the bill and can be a right chortle !!

This is a great pub - it's like sitting in a good friend's lounge. Really friendly people.. great crowd. I don't care if it looks tatty around the edges.

I was quite surprised to see that the reviews for this place were patchy at best. I came here about 4 months ago and was pretty impressed with a lot of things they do pretty differently. The milkshakes is a great idea, I rarely do not drink alcohol when in a pub but I'd like a better choice if I don't want to. Also the crepes were ace and a great pub food, all sorts of flavours and dietary types catered for and really cheap. I didn't think the tattiness (which is only slight anyway) was a tendency to be hip but there again who knows. I guess a lot of people go to gastro pubs these days and whereas it is true that the service and the food and drink in those places is generally excellent I often find that there is no vibe whatsoever and sometimes the whole experience is horribly clinical, the Torriano was a welcome opposite of that. Also great, great tunes being played.

I know this pub has had to fend off an application for redevelopment of its site in the past few years, and appears to have done so successfully (I think). It obviously has a keen local following, but I'm afraid I couldn't see what the fuss was about. It has a small rectangular interior with a central bar. The pub is in very tatty condition: this is, I suspect, intended to look "hip" but I'm afraid I thought just looked scruffy. Ale-wise there were two handpumps, but only one dispensing ale: Pedigree. I had a couple of pints of the lager instead, which was fine. Food-wise a very limited offering consisting largely of sweet and savoury crepes. I had a ham and brie crepe which took ages to arrive and wasn't that great. I'm afraid I found this a lazily run place content to rely on what is no doubt a small but devoted local following.

Disappointing really. My wife and I have lived near this pub for years and never found the time to go in. We found the service poor, and the drinks expensive. My ale tasted funny, and the spritzer my wife ordered was flat and unappetising. When mentioning this to the bar staff both the bearded guy and the blond lady were unfriendly and looked as though they thought we were lying. Don't visit here unless you don't mind poor service and overpriced drinks.
