So I gave this pub a hard time when I reviewed it before because of the extortionate prices the xmas before last but I gave it another go and the changes made me feel like I had to re-review. It's recently had a refurbish which, to be honest, had left it no better or worse than it was. The best change was that pints of Becks Vier was now only £3 during the lunchtime which was much more palatable than my previous visit. Coupled with the 'short skirts for bar staff' policy it's not too bad.

Aimed more for a sit down meal than a proper boozer and I still wouldn't recommend if you are an ale drinker (still only Adnams on) but getting better...

(ps still better pubs around the corner)

The reviewer below had it spot on: drinking here makes you feel like a battery hen. It's also incredibly expensive, the first pint of Adnams I had was in terrible condition and by the time I asked for a second (it was the only ale) they'd run out. Best avoided, particularly given there are so many good places close by.

I go here every other week, the girls at the door sort me out with a table every time. We had our office party recently and were serously paying for it the next morning, signs of a good time tho.

Just been mugged at this place. Have been an on/off regular here for years as it's down the road from work but the price of Becks Vier is now 5.40!! And that's one of the cheaper beers - Star was about 5.70. What a rip off - it's well over the odds for an upmarket bar let alone this average place. Even during "happy hour" the prices just about work out ok. Judging by the last review from the previous week the price of beer is creeping up week by week...

Average place, extortionate prices. A few of the barmaids are quite hot but unfortunately not enough of a justification to visit. I won't be coming back here ever again. Much better bars in the immediate vincinity - Telegraph, Dr Butlers Head, Globe, Red Herring all better. I'd even prefer the Corney & Barrow down Mason's Steet.

Oh dear... A misguided ex colleague of mine decided to have a gathering here last night to celebrate his 50th. I understand it was Happy Hour from 4.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. with half price drinks, but the background (the irony!) music started too loud and got louder. Of course I got my round in after 7.00 and paid a stonking 4.40 for my Adnams, which was flat and bland. The coup de grace were the additional pints of Becks Vier to go with it, weighing in at a staggering 5.30 a pint! I don't mind paying a level of premium for undeniably attractive staff, but good grief! Dreadful place - don't be tempted.
