Always tend to gravitate back here because of the Happy Hour.

Certainly not the greatest pub but friendly and can be cheap, ocasionaly turns up an eclectic selection of sports on TV (European basketball, African football, Slovakian cross country skiing). Is on our roster of local places we go for a budget night out and is certainly a better option than the 'spoons up the road near Farringdon.

We go the this bar quite a few times a week with my colleagues, it is a beautiful place and always very welcoming. The staff is always smiling and very polite. Our company has held many events, leaving do's and everytime time they have gone out of their way to accomodate our needs. It is a brilliant place to party and hire a completely separate area with our own bar.

I have been here a few times and had always rated is as okay, nothing special. Quite a quiet place. I went this time with five colleagues from work for a quick lunch. It WAS NOT quick! We ordered simple dishes, three of which were just sandwiches, and we waited for 45 minutes! We only have an hour for our lunch breaks, we had to literally force everything down quickly and then leave. The service wasn't brilliant either. The only "excuse" for the food taking so long was that the chef was temporary... I hope that means that they weren't sure whether to keep him on or not... and the answer is NOT TO! I would have thought that the least they would have done as a gesture of goodwill would be to give us our drinks on the house (which were soft ones afterall!)... we then had to stand and work out our own bill as we wanted to pay separately. We were rushing and to add to the stress an engineer was messing about with the till!

I will not be going again.

An oddly contrasting set of reviews below. This should be good - a dramatic setting beneath Holborn Viaduct (albeit on one of central London's worst roads), and the interior makes quite good use of the vaults beneath the Viaduct. But I found the bar a bit clinical and something that really could be found on any old High Street. I've worked around here for six years or more and this place has had a number of different owners - it's obviously a difficult place to do business, and one feels this isn't trying hard enough under current ownership.

Good looking place with a nice front bar, a cosy mezzanine area and a large basement with bar. Very friendly staff, good lunch & evening menu & above average quality wine list that has some stars & is modestly priced. A decent range of beers for a relatively small place. Available in 3 areas for functions and appears popular for this, as well as quite a nice outside seating area protected from the main road by a barrier wall. Regular street parties on busy nights.

Has free WiFi and were happy to serve a coffee to a surfer
