|Doh! "features on Jack the Ripper tours" - not "doors". |
Again I wish this site had an edit feature.

|Shabby chic combined with historic resonance, notable Victorian tiling and toilet graffiti. Two cask beers - Bombardier and Truman's Runner (made at Nethergate for two London businessmen who have bought the defunct Truman brand name). Leffe is served in standard straight half pint glasses - not sure if this is part of the pub's sloppy image or is a genuine mistake. Staff are unhappy and not well informed (our barman thought that Truman's Runner was made by the Truman brewery round the corner which closed in 1989 and is now a famous arts and event centre). Loud music. Echoing noise. Hustling, rough and unpleasant. I'd long wanted to visit the place, having driven past it many times and seeing the mass of customers spilling out on the street, and I'm pleased to have experienced it. I understand it features on Jack the Ripper doors because of dubious links to two of the victims - but there's little sense these days of the Victorian pub, despite retaining some original features. Feels, looks and sounds more like a Camden Market cafe.|

|Went early in the evening so this place had all the atmosphere of a morgue which wasnt helped by the surly Irishman behind the bar. Nice decor though but dont tell me those tiles are from victorian times they didnt have punk rockers then! |

|nice refurb altho this has decreased size of the venue it makes for a more intimate conversation friendly pub-wish the women in there werent so stuck up tho.|
