I agree it is generally a good pub and the quality of the Shep Neame beers is very good. Have always found service to be pretty slow though with a lot of staff standing around not doing a great deal. Seem to struggle when it gets busy.

Great little pub near Russell Square. Friendly landlord who gave me a taste of the winter warmer after she put it on. Neame ales in good nick.

Lunchtime visit again and found the food and Spitfire in tip top condition. A really comfortable pub. A pity its shut at weekends.

A Shepherd Neame pub in a nice residential location not too far from Holborn. Plenty of people were enjoying the pedestrianised area outside the front of the pub, as it was a nice early summer's day. The inside is nicely decorated and fairly cosy. It has cream walls, is carpeted and displays various rugby pictures on the walls. Spitfire & Master Brew were the only 2 real ales, with the Early Bird off. A nice location. But there are better pubs in the area with a better selection of beers.
