Unlike Samuel Pepys (who visited in April 1668 with the actress Mrs Knipp, where he “drank, ate a lobster, and sang, and mighty merry”) I walked in , had a pint , a look around and left unimpressed.

It's alright. Beer was decent service was ok. Not so memorable. Interior looks like many other pubs and I am sure it once looked far more interesting.

Didn't try the crisps so can't comment on them. They might have been amazing.

We were on holidays, on our final day in London and went in here for a final 'holiday over' pint. I was told by a very rude barmaid that the 50 pound note I had was 'too old' and that I'd need to go to the bank to change it (this being a Sunday). I told her I had just gotten it from an ATM two days previous and she said the bank shouldn't have given it to me. I advised her it was all we had, she said 'So you are saying these will have to come out of my wages?' I said no, I'm trying to pay you and she said 'fine I'll pay for them, now I'll have to ask you to leave'. She was incredibly rude and soured our last day. I later checked on the bank of England website and found that:
'All Bank of England notes from which legal tender status has been withdrawn remain payable at face value forever at the Bank of England in London. Any such notes may be presented for payment either in person during business hours, or sent to us by post.'
It may be policy within the pub not to accept these notes, but in light of the fact that they retain their value and are still being dispensed by ATM's, this woman was (very rudely) throwing away money.
I've worked in customer service for six years, I know how rude the public can be and it is because of people like this woman that the general public have such a bad opinion of shop assistants, many of whom work very hard and are totally unappreciated.

We found today's food service to be perfectly reasonable. The Redwillow Wreckless was new to me and tasted good (if a little hoppy for me but then I knew all along that it was a pale ale) but £4.04 per pint?! Still that wasn't as bad as £4.02 for a 330ml bottle of Aspall's cider! But with a lot of the nearby pubs shut on a Saturday lunchtime, maybe they have the tourist market to themselves.....

OMFG! Or in the immortal words of the previous poster "oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!". What ever happened to good service these days? Staff moody and incompetent - we've been ignored most of the afternoon, and when we've hunted them down to be served, they have struggled to get the order right - told they don't do half pints of lemonade on our third round, after ordering just such for our previous two rounds. It's a shame that the female waitresses, whilst being of a more attractive and exotic appearance, don't seem to appreciate it that when punters make eye contact they are in fact wanting their attention because they wish to order food and drinks and not because it's simply feeding their vanity!

Full credit to the Hungarian barman. Lovely venue too. Yet the whiole experience was unfortunately marred by the dreadful service.

Just to add insult to injury the AV situation was appalling as the sound was out of sync with the video too.

On the plus side, one competent member of staff and the food was prompt but bland.
