I frequent here quite often and i find it one of the better venues around westminster. During the christmas period it was absolutely rammed to the rafters catering for all the office workers around the area with their 3 course christmas meals which resulted in a limited menu for us normal folk for around 3 - 4 weeks.

Now normal service has resumed and i find it a pleasant place away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and take full advantage of the 2 for 1 burgers which are great value. They still run the half price wine promotion every Tuesday so can be quite busy that day especially in the evening.

Reals ales when i visited - Pedigree, Burton Bitter, Cross Buttock and Porter had the latter at 4.7% and have to say was actually quite good.

I have probably been here a handful of times now with my early impressions being that it was OK but seems to be going downhill. The first time I went the real ales weren't bad and all were drinkable and the food wasn't bad either. However, more recently when I have gone the beer has been pretty poor and on the latest occasion almost undrinkable - probably because they don't get sufficient demand. Also the food was limited over Christmas period to only snacks or Christmas dinner and most recently the kitchen was closed. I therefore doubt I will return unless others indicate that the beer has improved again!

This place doesn’t look very inviting from street level and I probably wouldn’t have bothered with it if I wasn’t meeting some friends. I was pleasantly surprised when I got down to the bar as I liked the layout and it wasn’t uncomfortably busy for our large group to get settled. The sofas upstairs were laid out well, but unfortunately they were reserved so we had to vacate them at 18:00.

Pedigree, Dirty Tackle and Paddy’s Tout were available alongside standard and premium lagers. I ended up sticking to the Guinness as I had been drinking this earlier and I didn’t spot any people drinking the ale. The barmaids seemed ok, if maybe a little disinterested in their work, but I’m not sure the barman had a clue what was going on and I put him down as a new starter.

There were a few plasma screens dotted about that were showing Sky Sports News, but I didn’t spot any live sport advertised. The background music varied from your expect old rock and pop to some strange coma inducing instrumentals that were better suited to a crack house.

This is a large cellar bar that is perfect for meeting groups of mates or work colleagues for the evening, but you wouldn’t catch me on my own in here reading the paper.

Modern-style underground bar, looking a bit like a lager-drinkers paradise from both street level and down below, but with four handpumps. Had quite a reasonable pint of Jennings 'Cross Buttock' (something to do with Cumberland wrestling, apparrently). Rather better than I expected.
